Pros:  My daughter loves the colors *rolls eyes* The price point for a composite bat No complaint about sting in the hands. Decent pop Super light for my 9 year old.

Cons:  I'm sure I could find a bat that has better pop but not at this price. I'm not ready to spend the big bucks on a bat just yet. Maybe next year we'll switch to the XENO...

How much does the 33” 2017 Louisville Slugger Proven weigh?

My daughter is 12 years old, 5'4" tall and 140 lbs. She currently uses a 34 inch 26 oz bat. She wants a lighter bat, what are your thoughts on this?

This could certainly work for a lighter model, although a -13 might be a bit too light for her age range. I would look for a -10 model as that is probably the most common drop for her age. A good example is the 2017 Demarini CF9 Slapper (WTDXCFA).

My daughter is an 8 year old that is 4'5" tall and 65 lbs. What size bat bat do you recommend? Thanks.

We would probably recommend a 30" length for her height and weight.

My daughter is 7 years old, 4'5", 64 lbs. Playing 8U and hitting off a pitch machine this year. Is this a good fit for her?

My 14 year old daughter is about 4'10" tall and about 115 lbs. Will this work?

Yes, this bat would work, although we would probably recommend looking for a -12 or -11 model given her age. This -13 bat might not hold up against faster pitch velocities she might face around her age range.

Is the 29” size a -13 as well? Looking at getting a good bat for my 8 year old daughter. She’s 4’ 4” and weighs about 65 lbs.

All sizes of the 2018 Louisville Slugger Proven -13 Fastpitch Softball Bat: WTLFPPR18A13 would be -13. A 29" -13 would weigh 16 ounces.

My daughter is 9 years old, about 4'6" and weighs about 75 pounds. Would this bat be a good option or would you recommend something else? Also, what length and drop?

Based on your daughters height and weight we would recommend a 30"/17 ounce 2018 Louisville Slugger Proven -13 Fastpitch Softball Bat: WTLFPPR18A13 for her.

I have 2 daughters, they are both 13. I'm not sure what bats would be good for them. If you can send me some suggestions that would be appreciated. One is about 4'9" 100 lbs and one is 5'1" maybe 115 lbs.

I would suggest a 31" bat for the smaller player, and a 32" for the other player. At their age, I would look at a -12 or -11, such as the 2017 Easton Stealth Flex -11 Fastpitch Softball Bat: FP17SF11 or the 2017 Easton Hyperlite Fastpitch Softball Bat: FP17HL12.

Does this bat have to be broken in?

This 2018 Louisville Slugger Proven -13 Fastpitch Softball Bat (WTLFPPR18A13) is constructed of composite material and will require a few days of consistent use before it is able to perform at its highest level.

My daughter is 7. She will be hitting off a pitching machine this year. Would this be a good bat for her?

Yes, the 2018 Louisville Slugger Proven -13 Fastpitch Softball Bat: WTLFPPR18A13 would be a great option for a seven year old player.

Is this a good bat for club fastpitch softball in the 14u age group?

The 2018 Louisville Slugger Proven -13 Fastpitch Softball Bat: WTLFPPR18A13 is designed more for a younger player with it's lightweight design. At 14u, you would probably want to look more into a -12 or -11 bat, such as the 2018 Louisville Slugger X12 Fastpitch Softball Bat: WTLFPX218A12 or the 2017 Louisville Slugger LXT Hyper Fastpitch Softball Bat: FPLX171.

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
