Pros:  I bought this bat for my six year old and my nine year old travel player and couldn't believe the amount of pop and abuse it took. Five players on the 6U team used my sons bat almost every at bat. Four and a half months later it's still putting the balls in outfield with no dents.

Cons:  none so far

I don't see the new USA Baseball Stamp on this bat. Does it comply with the new USSSA 2018 requirement?

The 2018 Louisville Slugger Omaha 518 -10 Junior Big Barrel Baseball Bat: WTLSLO518J10 is approved for USSSA baseball, but not USA. If you are needing a USA model like this, check out the 2018 Louisville Slugger Omaha 518 -10 USA Baseball Bat: WTLUBO518B10.

How would this bat hold up for machine pitches at 43 mph? Or kid pitch 9U levels?

Since the 2018 Louisville Slugger Omaha 518 -10 Junior Big Barrel Baseball Bat: WTLSLO518J10 is best designed for coach pitch leagues where the velocity is 40 MPH or less we would not expect this bat to hold up well over time if the velocity from the pitching machine is 43 MPH.

What is the difference between this bat, the WTLSLO518J10 Omaha 518 and the other model WTLSLO518X10 Omaha 518?

The 2018 Louisville Slugger Omaha 518 -10 Junior Big Barrel Baseball Bat: WTLSLO518J10 is constructed and designed for players 8 and under playing coach pitch. The 2018 Louisville Slugger Omaha 518 -10 Senior League Baseball Bat: WTLSLO518X10 is a senior league model for players playing live arm, or player pitch baseball at higher pitching speeds.

Is this bat legal for Pony Travel ball, tournament play?

This bat would not be legal for Pony as it does not have the USA Baseball certification stamp. It has the USSSA 1.15 BPF certification. I would check with your coach or league commissioner for further details on what your league allows.

Does this bat conform with the new Little League rules for 2018?

Unfortunately, the 2018 Louisville Slugger Omaha 518 -10 Junior Big Barrel Baseball Bat: WTLSLO518J10 is USSSA certified and it is not legal for play in Little League. You are required to use USA certified bats for Little League. The 2018 Louisville Slugger Omaha 518 -10 USA Baseball Bat: WTLUBO518B10 is the USA certified option that is legal for Little League.

Would you recommend this bat for a 7U kid pitch travel ball player?

The 2018 Louisville Slugger Omaha 518 -10 Junior Big Barrel Baseball Bat: WTLSLO518J10 is more designed for play in coach pitch. If the bat was being used much in kid pitch, it may not hold up very well.

Logan Expert

Would this bat be a good choice for an 8 year old playing machine pitch?

The 2018 Louisville Slugger Omaha 518 -10 Junior Big Barrel Baseball Bat: WTLSLO518J10 would certainly be a good fit for any player playing machine pitch.

Would this bat work in 6U machine pitch?

The 2018 Louisville Slugger Omaha 518 -10 Junior Big Barrel Baseball Bat: WTLSLO518J10 would only work in 6U machine pitch if the league does not require the use of a USA stamped bat (this model has USSSA certification) and only if the machine is set for 35 MPH or less.

So is there an advantage to using a Junior Big Barrel bat over a Senior League Bat?

There is no true performance or durability advantage to getting this 2018 Louisville Slugger Omaha 518 -10 Junior Big Barrel Baseball Bat (WTLSLO518J10) over a Senior League Bat. From what I typically see, getting a Junior Big Barrel Bat and using it in kid pitch baseball usually creates a disadvantage for durability. I do not usually see the thinner barrel walls in Junior Big Barrel bats offering much if any performance advantage over the Senior League bats.

Is there a break in period for this bat?

The 2018 Louisville Slugger Omaha 518 -10 Junior Big Barrel Baseball Bat: WTLSLO518J10 will be hot out of the wrapper. No need for break in.

What is the real difference between this Junior Big barrel model and the Senior League model, since both offer the 26 inch length?

This 2018 Louisville Slugger Omaha 518 -10 Junior Big Barrel Baseball Bat (WTLSLO518J10) will be intended for use with Coach Pitch and Machine Pitch Leagues. Unfortunately, the Junior Big Barrel bats have barrels that are designed in a way that doesn't allow them to be very durable when facing pitching speeds that are above 40 mph. The Senior League bats are meant to face those higher speeds being faced in kid pitch baseball.

About Louisville Slugger
Louisville Slugger

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. Back in the 1880s, Bud was working at his father's woodworking shop in Louisville, Kentucky. Legend has it that Bud, a lover of baseball and a player himself, slipped away from work one afternoon in 1884 to watch Louisville's major league team, the Louisville Eclipse. Bud was in the stands as the team's star, P.... read more
