Louisville Slugger is the Official Bat of Major League Baseball and the #1 name in baseball since the earliest days of the sport. In many ways, the storied 130+ year history of the Louisville Slugger baseball bat began in the talented hands of 17-year-old John A. "Bud" Hillerich.

Description for 2017 Louisville Slugger MLB Prime C243 Natural With Black Maple Wood Baseball Bat: WTLWPM243B16 Adult
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.
