That spot that you see on the Louisville Slugger MLB Prime EL3-I13 Deep Flame With Black Maple Wood Baseball Bat: WTLWPMI13A16 Adult is going to be the ink dot test that is done on some wood bats. The ink dot shows the quality of grain and the quality of wood used for the bat.
The Louisville Slugger MLB Prime wood baseball bat consistently offers the utmost quality and craftsmanship from year to year. These big league bats use MLB Grade wood which comes from only the top 3% of Louisville Slugger's wood. This results in the hardest hitting surface and the straightest grains in comparison to any other wood bat. The newest feature of all the MLB Prime models is the brand-new EXO ARMOR. This cutting-edge and innovative top coat doubles an already hard surface that will allow you the player to immediately notice a first-rate feel and unparalleled sound upon contact. It is the hardest in the game and harder means farther! Bone rubbing has become a necessity with wood bats to ensure that the grains and fibers become compressed while making the wood more dense. Not only will all MLB Prime bats come bone rubbed but they also feature a cupped end to improve balance and ensure a higher density piece of wood. Furthermore, the MLB Prime wood baseball bats are graded for quality at six different stages from the time the tree is cut until the bat is finished, including the final step - the ink dot slope of grain test for MLB approval.
The 2017 Louisville Slugger MLB Prime EL3-I13 Deep Flame With Black Maple Wood Baseball Bat: WTLWPMI13A16 Adult was designed specifically for MLB third baseman Evan Longoria. The Silver Slugger Award winner's bat features the I13 turning model. The I13 is considered to be Louisville Slugger's most popular big barrel bat. The thick transition from the large barrel to the standard handle results in a slightly end loaded swing weight that is preferred by power hitters who are swinging for the fence. This Evan Longoria version, dubbed the EL3-I13, highlights these features with a deep flame finished barrel and a high-gloss black handle. Louisville Slugger: The Hard Truth!
