Description

2020 Louisville Slugger Meta Prime BBCOR Baseball Bat: WTLBBMTB320
Make this season your strongest ever with this Louisville Slugger Meta Prime bat. The sophisticated three-piece design gives the bat the feel of a rigid one-piece, with the comfort and stability of a hybrid. This gives both power hitters and more all-around utility men the tool wreak havoc on the opponent's defense.

Bat Benefits
Re-engineered using Louisville's patented 3FX Connection System, this Meta Prime bat is designed for big contact and big power. As a hybrid, though, this BBCOR bat doesn't sacrifice pop off the sweet spot for comfort. You can expect big, soaring shots deep toward the fences without the frustrating and painful sting of good contact. This design, coupled with the Premium Pro LS Comfort Grip gives the hands total security. And with a -3 drop weight, you can be sure that this beast of a bat carries through that strike zone with serious vengeance. The barrel itself is composed of Louisville's EKO Composite Alloy. This gives the bat good balance and a large barrel. It also provides one of the sweetest popping sounds on contact, giving extra satisfaction to a strong base hit. And with the new RTX end cap design, the barrel is maximized for performance and swing speed.

Warranty
Louisville Slugger offers a one-year, limited warranty on its non-wood bats. Order your own Louisville Slugger BBCOR bat today and enjoy fast, free shipping.

Overall Great Bat Mason S Player

Pros: The bat has a great amount of pop. The tape on the bat is very nice and sticky. The colors look even better in person than in pictures. Very nice sound, almost identical to the 2019 Meta Prime.

Cons: No cons to the bat yet.

Well worth it Coach V Coach

Pros: BOTTOM LINE- the bat performs well and increases the hitter's confidence. The bat is sick. I have an 18 YO and a 15 YO sharing this bat. Each of them love it and as the regular BP "pitching machine" I can tell you my calibrated eye-ball can clearly see that the exit velocity off this bat is higher than any other BBCOR bat we have used (we have also run pocket radar against this bat and the others we have, and this bat's exit velocity out performs the other bats). This extra speed results in about 10-20 extra feet on average. Although i have seen as much as a 50 feet increase- using this bat, the batter can simply crush the ball. Now, IMO this $500 bat will not turn a $1 swing into a bomb dropper, but it will definitely perform as well as you can push it.

Cons: the bat is expensive, but if you are looking for something that will perform (or out perform) as well as you can- the bat is worth it .

This Bat Defines, Ryan Coach

Pros: This bat's pop is second to none, and has a giant sweet spot. Hot right out of the wrapper and even better after break in. It is well balanced, feels great in your hands, and vibration is none existent. I have coached travel ball for over a decade, have two sons, 16 and 13 years old, and have seen all the hot bats, ie: Orange Easton XL circa 15, Green Zen Circa 16, etc., but those bats were in the drop -5 categories for USSSA senior leagues. Frankly, I was a coach that believed composite bats are great for senior league, but I thought for BBCOR, one piece alloys were the route to go. I then spent the last year of high school varsity ball and then travel this past summer watching kids use the Meta 19 model, and that bat preformed exceptionally well. When I heard the 2020 Meta was basically the same bat, I finally broke down and bought one for my 16 year old. After taking it to the cage the first time I was sold. This bat is incredible!!!

Cons: The price, but refer to the title of the review. I'm not one to fork over this kind of money for a bat, but it is simply the best on the market.

By far best BBCOR. Diego M Player

Pros: It is incredible hot. When you hit it, it just seems as if the ball jumps off your bat. This bat is worth more than 500 in my opinion. It is the best BBCOR bat on the market and will be for a very long time.

Cons: None.

I became a believer. Jeff Parent

Pros: So my son had the 2019 Quatro pro and loved it. It's a great bat and when it broke he was a little sad. I gave him the option of getting any bat he wanted including the Meta and he was determined that he loved the Quatro and that was all he would swing. So I got him a new one. It came on a Friday and we were off to go hit. We stopped at a "play it again sports" to pick up a grip and my son saw they had rental demos of the Meta. He asked to rent one for the day "just to see what the hype was about". Get to the cage.....place a ball on the tee.....he takes a good first swing with the Meta....catches barrel and hits a rocket. The look on his face said it all but of course....the words soon came after....."I need this bat". He gave up on his beloved Quatro with one swing. I kinda felt the same way after I took a few swings too. The thing is impressive. So Quatro went to eBay and a new Meta is in the bag. They got us too. This bat is as good as the marketing says it is.

Cons: Just the ridiculous price. But at this point I'm numb to bat prices so 500 doesn't even seen that bad.

Louisville Meta Prime Robert Newberg Player

Pros: It feels good. Pretty light. I would suggest a bigger size. It has a little bit faster bat speed with this bat. Very balanced, decent quality.

Cons: The pop is kind of dead, comes off decently hot. Not really worth $500 and not the bat i was looking for.

My 15-year-old son has the 2018 Red Meta Prime. If I get him the 2020, is the Meta blue and silver the one to purchase? Thanks.
Craig
If your 15-year-old has the 2019 red META Prime the 2020 model will be the Louisville Slugger Meta Prime BBCOR Baseball Bat: WTLBBMTB320, which is blue and silver.
Max
What is the difference between this and the LS Meta Prime Red 2019? Just the paint?
SlingDaddy
The latest model of the Louisville Slugger Meta Prime BBCOR Baseball Bat: WTLBBMTB320 will feature similar components as the prior model. This biggest difference will be that the 2020 model features an updated EKO composite barrel. This composite allows for a faster break-in period before reaching the bat's peak performance.
Daveron
Does the new Meta Prime come with the 30 day Money back guarantee?
Josh
The Louisville Slugger Meta Prime BBCOR Baseball Bat: WTLBBMTB320 will not feature a trial period. This bat must remain unused for it to be accepted back for a refund or exchange. Once it hits a ball, it becomes a used model and no longer available for a return.
Daveron
Is the new prime meta an end loaded bat?
Robert
No, the 2020 Louisville Slugger Meta Prime BBCOR Baseball Bat: WTLBBMTB320 is a balanced bat.
Tori
Will we have a more durable bat for 2020?
Richard Newland
With the Louisville Slugger Meta Prime BBCOR Baseball Bat: WTLBBMTB320 just being released there is no information out yet on how the bat rates from a durability perspective.
Cameron
Is there a difference in performance between the 2020 model and the 2019? I have the 32" 2019 and am thinking about the 2020, just curious if I can expect it to feel and perform the same?
Brian
The performance and feel of the Louisville Slugger Meta BBCOR Baseball Bat: WTLBBMTB320 would compare to the previous Meta Prime bat. We do not anticipate any difference between the two bats.
Cameron
Would this bat or a Louisville Slugger Prime have a lighter swing weight?
Roger Hardin
The Louisville Slugger Meta BBCOR Baseball Bat: WTLBBMTB320 will feature a slightly heavier swing weight when compared to the Prime.
Cameron
I am more of a doubles and singles kind of player with the occasional home run. Which Louisville Slugger Bat should I get? The Prime? Or Meta Prime?
Nolan
The Louisville Slugger Meta Prime uses Louisville's latest technology to provide one of the largest sweet spots on the market, but does feel like a slight end loaded swing weight, which is more designed for power hitters. The Prime should have a slightly better balanced feel to it, so whichever style you prefer is the one I would lean towards.
Kyle
The 2019 Meta Prime was able to perform in colder temps compared to other composite bats. Will the 2020 version offer the same performance in similar colder temps?
John
Since the 2020 Meta Prime is still a very recent release, it's impossible to say for certain. However, there were not too many major changes from the 2019 to the 2020 model, so I would expect the same, high performance from the 2020 model.
Kyle
Where does the 2020 Louisville Slugger Meta sit on the mass index?
Victor
Louisville Slugger currently does not have Mass Index charts out for their 2020 models as far as we can tell, but the 2020 Meta should be very similar to the 2019 Meta Prime in that regard.
Kyle
Is the 2020 Louisville slugger meta more end loaded? My kid is smaller and that’s a concern.
Clark
The Louisville Slugger Meta BBCOR Baseball Bat: WTLBBMTB320 will be a balanced model. The Louisville Slugger Meta BBCOR Baseball Bat: WTLBBMTB320 will be a light swinging bat with a large barrel.
Max
Which bat will have a lighter swing weight: Meta Prime, CF Zen or new Easton MAXUM? MAXUM will be hot out the wrapper compared to Zen and Meta right?
Gee
With all three bats being composite barrels, one will want to put all three options through a break-in period before using in a game setting. As for which bat may feature a more balanced swing weight, our opinion ranking would be CF Zen, MAXUM and then the Louisville Slugger Meta BBCOR Baseball Bat: WTLBBMTB320.
Cameron
My son is going for his first season in BBCOR and I'm buying a new bat that isn't too heavy and have major pop. Between the Louisville Meta and Cat 8 Connect, which would you recommend?
Hiram Saez
The Louisville Slugger Meta BBCOR Baseball Bat: WTLBBMTB320 will feature a stiffer connection point when compared to the Cat 8 Connect. This can help lead to slightly higher exit velos which in turn aid the distance the ball will travel. As far as swing weight feel, both the LS Meta and Cat 8 Connect will be very similar.
Cameron
What is the better bat? 2020 LS Meta or Meta Power?
cisco
The Louisville Slugger Meta BBCOR Baseball Bat: WTLBBMTB320 will feature a stiffer connection point and is more balanced compared to the Louisville Slugger Select PWR BBCOR Baseball Bat: WTLBBSPB320. With regards to performance, there is not a big gap separating the two models; slight edge to the Meta due to the stiffer connection point.
Cameron
Do they make a 31" in the 2020 Meta?
Keith Spell
Yes, but we are currently out of stock in that size. We are hoping to receive another shipment from Louisville Slugger in the coming weeks.
Kyle
Does this bat have a 12 month warranty? How is the LS company warranty compared to Easton?
Greg
The Louisville Slugger Meta BBCOR Baseball Bat: WTLBBMTB320 features a 12 month warranty from the date of purchase through LS. This is the same type of warranty period that Easton and other bat manufacturers offer. If the bat were to become defective, a customer could set up a claims number with LS so they could send the bat back to them for replacement. Most manufacturers will only replace a bat once within the original 12 month warranty period.
Cameron
I am new to baseball bat world. Having to buy my first BBCOR bat for 13 year old son. How long do bats usually last? Would this be a good bat to buy him that would last several years?
Chris Jones
Typically, fully composite bats like this Louisville Slugger Meta tend to last 1-2 years, depending on how much the player plays (year round, spring only, etc). Aluminum barrel typically last slightly longer. This bat should be one of the best on the market, so it would be an excellent choice. The 2019 Meta Prime from Louisville Slugger was a very good performing BBCOR bat, and this is the updated model.
Kyle
Is there recommendations on breaking in a 2020 Meta BBCOR?
Joe
The best way to break in the Louisville Slugger Meta BBCOR Baseball Bat: WTLBBMTB320, or any other composite barrel bat, would be to take 150-250 swings off the tee, soft toss, front side toss, etc. After around 10 swings, rotate the barrel roughly a 1/4 turn to help ensure a break in across the entirety of the barrel. Swing effort should be around 60-70% of max swing effort. This will help establish the break-in on the bat and it will continue to break in further during use.
Cameron
How does this model compare to the red Meta Prime 2019 model? I have the 2019 and love it, but people are paying top $ for the 2019 model, $700-900 on EBay . Does the 2019 have more pop than the 2020??
Julio Vidal
The 2020 Louisville Slugger Meta is essentially the same bat as the 2019 Meta Prime. The only change other than the cosmetics is the EKO composite barrel which just helps speed up the break in period.
Kyle
Which bat has a more balanced swing, this one or the Easton ADV 360?
Max
Both are considered to have a balanced swing weight, but I would lean slightly towards the Easton ADV 360 to feel a bit more balanced.
Kyle
My son 14 years old, 5’8 and 120 pounds. what size bat would be better for him?
Tim
I would recommend swinging a 31'' 28 oz in the Louisville Slugger Meta BBCOR Baseball Bat: WTLBBMTB320 based upon your player's height and weight.
Max
Is the bat end loaded?
Mark
The Louisville Slugger Meta BBCOR Baseball Bat: WTLBBMTB320 is balanced.
Cameron
What is the difference between the 2020 Meta and the 2020 Prime?
Will
The Louisville Slugger Meta BBCOR Baseball Bat: WTLBBMTB320 features a stiffer connection point and a longer barrel profile with the new EKO composite. Both bats are two-piece composite, with a balanced swing weight, but the Prime will be the more balanced option.
Cameron
Will you be selling the 2020 Louisville Slugger Meta PWR BBCOR Baseball bat that has an end loaded swing weight? If so, when will it be offered for purchase?
D. Cordrey
No, unfortunately we will not be carrying the Louisville Slugger Meta PWR as that is exclusive to Louisville Slugger. We will only have the Louisville Slugger Meta BBCOR Baseball Bat: WTLBBMTB320.
Tori
My son currently has the Easton Ghost X BBCOR Baseball Bat: BB18GX. Can you tell me how it would compare to the new Meta?
Gary
Both the Louisville Slugger Meta BBCOR Baseball Bat: WTLBBMTB320 and the Easton Ghost X BBCOR are two-piece composite models with balanced swing weights. However, the Meta will have a stiffer connection point giving the bat more of a one-piece feel.
Cameron
Does the Meta Prime or the Easton ADV have more pop?
J.R.
Because of the BBCOR certification, the Louisville Slugger Meta BBCOR Baseball Bat: WTLBBMTB320 and Easton ADV will have very similar performance as the BBCOR certification sets the performance standard.
Max
I play on a 13u team and we’re only allowed to use -5 or BBCOR. I would use -5 but it’s too light. What should I do?
Ben
A BBCOR bat will not offer the same performance as a -5 bat, whether it is USSSA or USA approved. BBCOR bats feature the thickest barrel walls on the market to prevent exit velocity; bats will perform more like a wood bat. The Louisville Slugger Meta BBCOR Baseball Bat: WTLBBMTB320 is certainly a great option to consider if you are looking into a BBCOR bat. In the short time this bat has been on the market, hitters have rated it highly in terms of performance within the BBCOR lineup.
Cameron
This is confusing. Is the 2020 Meta essentially the same bat as the 2019 Meta Prime? And is the 2020 Meta Prime essentially the same bat as the 2019 Prime 919?
Brad Y
Essentially the Louisville Slugger Meta BBCOR Baseball Bat: WTLBBMTB320 is the same bat as the Louisville Slugger Meta Prime BBCOR Baseball Bat: WTLBBMTP9B3. The only difference is that it is a year newer and the color scheme has changed. The difference between the Louisville Slugger Meta BBCOR Baseball Bat: WTLBBMTB320 and the Louisville Slugger Prime 919 BBCOR Baseball Bat: WTLBBP919B3 is the 2020 Louisville Slugger Meta BBCOR Baseball Bat: WTLBBMTB320 has a EKO Composite barrel which is engineered for peak performance, the Louisville Slugger Prime 919 BBCOR Baseball Bat: WTLBBP919B3 does not have this feature.

Tori
Is Pro Balanced Swing Weight the same as balanced swing weight?
brent
Both the Louisville Slugger Meta BBCOR Baseball Bat: WTLBBMTB320 and the 2019 Prime 919 will be balanced bats overall. However, we have some reviews that say the Prime is a little more end loaded than other Louisville Slugger bats.
Ben
What is the temperature range do you recommend for this bat? My boys plays on the East Coast and spring ball never gets above 50.
Rich
We wouldn't recommend using the Louisville Slugger Meta BBCOR Baseball Bat: WTLBBMTB320 below 50 degrees as the ball actually gets harder in the colder temperatures and it can cause the composite to crack.
Tori
Can this bat be used in cold weather?
Shane Smith
The Louisville Slugger Meta BBCOR Baseball Bat: WTLBBMTB320 will feature a composite barrel. Composite barrels require a break in period and are not recommended for temperatures below 55 degrees. They can be used in colder weather; however, you will want to limit the number of hits as possible.
Daveron
I contacted Louisville Slugger and they told me the Meta bat needs no break in and is ready out of the wrapper. This seems to conflict with the normal composite break in process?
Alam
The Louisville Slugger Meta BBCOR Baseball Bat: WTLBBMTB320 does not need a break in period. This is because of the EKO Composite Barrel Engineered To The Pinnacle Of Performance.
Jack
Is this bat permitted under NFHS rules? Thanks!
Mike Romano
The Louisville Slugger Meta BBCOR Baseball Bat: WTLBBMTB320 will feature the BBCOR .50 stamp. This does indeed regulate all high school and collegiate play. It is legal for NFHS play.
Daveron

Cameron

Bob Romano

Cameron

Richie
Unfortunately the Louisville Slugger Meta BBCOR Baseball Bat: WTLBBMTB320 is not featured in a 30/27. The smallest size available would be 31/28.
Cameron
What’s the suggested break in for this product?
A.J.
With any composite bat, we suggest anywhere from 50-150 swings off a tee or using soft toss, taking about 3/4 speed swings. Rotate the bat as you do so to break it in all around the barrel as well.
Kyle
Can you please tell me the difference between this bat and the 2020 Dirt Demon -3 BBCOR by Dirty South Bats?
Kev
The Louisville Slugger Meta BBCOR Baseball Bat: WTLBBMTB320 is going to be a a Three Piece Composite with a EKO Composite Barrel Engineered To The Pinnacle Of Performance. We do not carry a Dirt Demon -3. But the Dirt Demon will be a One Piece Composite bat.
Jack
Is there a limitation to how much you should hit with the Meta?
Luke
Not really, no. While constant use will raise the risk of durability concerns down the road (say hitting in the cage for a few hundred swings multiple times a week), so far we haven't had too many concerns from customers in regards to the bat's durability, and you do have the 12 month warranty from Louisville on this bat. We do recommend avoiding hitting the dimple cage balls however, as they can put more stress on the bat than a normal ball. Rotating the bat and getting hits all along the barrel can help as well.
Kyle
What is the difference in the Meta and Meta PWR?
Hantse Costas
The Louisville Slugger Meta BBCOR Baseball Bat: WTLBBMTB320 features a balanced swing weight while the Meta PWR has an end-loaded swing weight.
Cameron
Who can I contact to determine if the 33/30 bat is approved for Minnesota State High School league play?
David Rakow
I would advise contacting your coach or a league official. As of now only the 33" model is banned for NCAA play.

Temperatures of 50-60 degrees should not have any adverse effect on any bat.

About the Brand

In 1842, J. Frederick Hillerich emigrated with his family from Baden-Baden, Germany to the United States. Eight years before, the 1834 Book of Sports had made its debut as the nation's first publication covering baseball. But when he arrived in Baltimore, J. Frederick Hillerich would never have dreamed of the future impact his family would have on America's favorite pastime.

After a short while, the Hillerichs moved to Louisville, where J. Fred started a woodworking shop in 1856. Two of his sons, Adam and John Andrew "Bud" were born in the United States and would later join their father in his business. By 1864 "J.F. Hillerich, Job Turning" was in operation and filled orders for businesses by custom-turning everything from balusters to bedposts.

The firm thrived, and by 1875 the little woodworking shop employed about 20 people. In 1880 Bud Hillerich, who was an amateur baseball player, became an apprentice in his father's shop. Young Bud made his own baseball bats along with bats for several of his teammates.

The debate over the origins of the first bat continues to generate controversy among baseball enthusiasts, but the younger Hillerich was most certainly involved in getting his father's business involved with what would become the company's signature item. According to company legend, the first bat was turned by Bud for Pete "The Old Gladiator" Browning in 1884. Browning was a star on Louisville's professional American Association team - the Eclipse. On a spring afternoon Bud, then seventeen, witnessed Browning break his favorite bat. Bud offered to make a bat for his hero, and Browning accepted. After the young wood shop apprentice lathed a quality stick from white ash, according to the story, Browning got three hits with it in the next game.

Louisville Slugger gloves are worn by more pitchers in Major League Baseball than any other glove.
