Description

2020 Louisville Slugger Prime -10 USA Baseball Bat: WTLUBP9B1020
Swing into the new season with this ready-for-action Louisville Slugger Prime baseball bat, approved for use in USA Baseball leagues. With a new cap, barrel, and shock resistance engineering, this bat has the ability to carry that average over the .300 mark and into an MVP season.

Bat Benefits
Take some strong at bats with this new Louisville Slugger. It comes equipped with Premium AVC Microform Composite technology, which provides a thick, reliable and dynamic sweet spot on the barrel. Crank that through the zone, helped by the new balanced swing weight. This comes in handy as this bat clocks in at -10 drop weight, making it light enough for young players to swing with confidence. Even if you can't muscle up with the biggest of players, choking up on the VCX Vibration Control Connection System keeps the kinetic energy off contact in the barrel of the bat and away from those gloved hands. This connection system offers one of the most cutting-edge two-piece construction and gives you the confidence to swing for yard on every fat meatball coming down the pipe. On contact, you will find the pop you desire, too. The patented Premium RTX end cap optimizes the barrel of the bat, making it easier to punch through that sweet spot more often. And while amplifying those power numbers, you can securely step to the plate again and again, knowing that the Premium LS Pro Comfort Grip will keep those hands soft and agile throughout the season.

Warranty
Louisville Slugger comes with a one-year guarantee for damaged or otherwise defective baseball bats.

What is the difference from this USA Prime Bat vs last year's bat?
Coach Tim
Theis Louisville Slugger Prime -10 USA Baseball Bat: WTLUBP9B1020 is very similar to last year's bat as far as makeup and performance. The only difference will be cosmetic.
Tori
What makes this a 3 piece bat?
Bryant
The Louisville Slugger Prime -10 USA Baseball Bat: WTLUBP9B1020 is essentially a two-piece bat; the end cap is considered the "third" piece.
Cameron
What is the actual weight of the listed 28/18 ?
DM
The true weight will vary slightly from bat to bat, but most USA bats will weigh roughly 1-1.5 oz over the listed amount.
Kyle
I'm trying to decide between The Prime and the Louisville Slugger Select drop 8 for my 11 yr old. I would think the Prime would have more pop with a composite barrel over alloy, but the alloy barrel on Select would be more durable. It seems like more and more of these newer composite barrel bats crack is my concern. Any thoughts?
Andy Case
You are correct in your assessment of composite barrel bats breaking down quicker than an alloy model. Generally speaking, for a player that is 11 a drop 10 bat, like the Louisville Slugger Prime -10 USA Baseball Bat: WTLUBP9B1020, would be more beneficial than something that is a drop 8; this is a better size for a 12-13 year old player. As for performance regarding the new USA bats, there is not going to be much difference between alloy and composite. Most composite bats are more balanced and that is where the true benefit would lie.
Cameron
Dose the prime come in drop 8?
Jorge
Unfortunately there is not a drop 8 version of the Louisville Slugger Prime -10 USA Baseball Bat: WTLUBP9B1020. At this time, the Louisville Slugger Select -8 USA Baseball Bat: WTLUBS7B820 would be the only drop 8 USA model from LS.

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.
