Bat Benefits
Stretch your hitter's comfort zone with this Slugger Prime. Coming in at a -8 drop weight, this is a perfect transition bat for those looking to move from the bottom of the lineup to the meat of the order. The Premium AVC Microform Composite materials in the bat construction optimize the strength and size of the sweet spot and help drive in those crucial runs in the clutch. The VCX Vibration Control Connection System provides ultimate balance, stability and performance on this two-piece bat. It also keeps those hands supple and reactive, even after going 3 for 4 the previous evening with a couple of zinging squibs off the end of the bat. The Turbine Composite end cap provides further performance on the barrel and the sweet spot by balancing the weight and holding a consistent shape on the composite. And with the Premium LS Pro Comfort Grip's patented tackiness and squish, it ensures hands remain on the bat even on the most forceful swings through the zone.

Lousiville Slugger offers a one-year limited warranty on this bat. This covers defective materials and bats damaged in regular game play. Order now for fast, free shipping!

So far, so good AG Coach

Pros: Son has had the bat for almost a month and during that time, has played in a tournament and about 3 games. He practices about twice a week and so far, he loves it. His swing is a bit rusty but one can tell the ball jumps off this bat similar to his -8 (2018) Zen. Can't comment on durability just yet but overall, this is a great bat and a sleeper when compared to the Zen.

Cons: None thus far but time will tell on the durability factor.

Great 1 time use bat Disappointed Parent Parent

Pros: No break in period needed. Hot right out of the wrapper.

Cons: 1st bat broke inside the barrel. There was a rattle inside. 2nd bat broke at the VCX Connector. The handle and the barrel are no longer connected. You can feel it move as you swing. Both bats did not last 200 hits.

The correct size of the Louisville Slugger Prime -8 USSSA Baseball Bat: WTLSLP9X820 for you to get will depend on your height and weight. If you put that information in on our Bat Coach it will tell you the correct length. You can find that here: It looks like we have one review so far and more will likely be added as more people use the bat.
Hello, is there any difference in the engineering of the last year's bat & this L.S. Prime -8 bat composite or just aesthetics? And lastly, are you having returns because of this bat coming apart? I’m seeing a few reviews that durability isn’t so good. Thank you.
The Prime model did not change really between the 2019 and 2020 model besides cosmetics. They still use the SBC end cap and VCX connection point technology, and the 100% MicroForm composite material. As the bat is still a new release, it is a bit early to claim it has durability issues since there are currently only 2 customer reviews on the item, so it is a small sample size at this time. Warranty claims are handled through the manufacturer however, not us at JustBats.

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.
