Pros:  Blown away by the quality of the cut, finish, grip, and performance. Bought 28" for my 9 year old. We have two dozen wood bats now but this one. This one is special. The one we received was as light as a metal bat, sweet spot on par or better than other $50-100 maple and ash bats he owns, but the lack of vibration from the cut and grip are superior. Best bat in my opinion for younger players due to quality, price, and performance.

Cons:  None-

“nice bat”

Pros:  The bat is well made and the ball jumps off of it. It’s my son’s first wood bat and was worried about the heavier weight than the metal one he uses. No issues at all and it actually helps that it is a little heavier. He actually received compliments about the bat from others in the cage.

Cons:  none at all.

My son has a Louisville Slugger Select 718 -10 USA baseball bat WTLUBS718B10, length 29 inches and 19 ounces. He is 54 inches tall and weighs 70 pounds. I want to get him a wood bat - what size do you recommend in this bat? Asking as with only a -5 drop on this wood bat I expect it may be heavy for him since it will be 24 ounces vs the 19 ounces he is use to.

Based on the player's height and weight, a 29 inch model of the 2018 Louisville Slugger Prime Maple Wood Youth Baseball Bat: WTLWYM271B17G would be our general recommendation. Since this bat weighs more than what the player has been using from a metal bat standpoint it may be wiser to drop down in length or go with the Louisville Slugger Select Maple Wood Youth Baseball Bat: WTLWYM243A1 as the length to weight ratio on this bat is more favorable for a youth player.

I am not positive how to choose bat size. Boy will be 9 end of Feb. and wants his first wood bat for spring Cal Ripken league. Always used Aluminum, last year used 28/29. Thin build but athletic. 4'-3" and 61 pounds now.

Based on your sons height and weight we would recommend trying out the 2018 Louisville Slugger Prime Maple Wood Youth Baseball Bat: WTLWYM271B17G in the 28" size for his first wood bat.

Are any youth wood bats made with a 2 5/8 barrel?

Unfortunately, there are no youth wood bats made with the 2 5/8" barrel size. The weight of the wood does not allow for this construction type. This 2018 Louisville Slugger Prime Maple Wood Youth Baseball Bat: WTLWYM271B17G is a high quality youth bat, though.

Is this bat USA stamp certified?

The 2018 Louisville Slugger Prime Maple Wood Youth Baseball Bat: WTLWYM271B17G does not feature the USA certification stamp, but as an all maple wood bat you should not be required to have that on the bat. It is always best to check with your local league though to make sure the bat meets their requirements.

Can we use this bat in Little League? Or does it have to have a USA baseball stamp? We'd rather use this than the get a new composite bat.

The 2018 Louisville Slugger Prime Maple Wood Youth Baseball Bat: WTLWYM271B17G can be used in Little League since it is made completely of solid maple wood.

Is the lizard skin grip the same grip solid retail or a lower grade per say? Would rather buy the same bat with no grip and add one etc. if it isn't as nice.

The Lizard Skin grip featured on the 2018 Louisville Slugger Prime Maple Wood Youth Baseball Bat: WTLWYM271B17G would be the same grip you see in stores. The grip comes on the bat from Louisville Slugger, and is how we sell it, but you could certainly re-grip the bat if you wanted to.

Is this bat Little League approved, 9-12 age group?

The 2018 Louisville Slugger Prime Maple Wood Youth Baseball Bat: WTLWYM271B17G features a 2 1/4" barrel and is a solid maple wood bat. These features make it legal for play in the Majors division of Little League for 2017. You might want to check with a league official or coach first though, as rules can vary from area to area.

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
