Louisville Slugger Meta -8 USSSA Baseball Bat: WBL2468010

The Meta has been busy beating up high school and college pitching for 2 years, now it is ready to unleash its potential on USSSA pitching too.

Bat Benefits

This drop 8 size is what you will probably be looking for (in regard to size) if you are playing in the 13U division of USSSA (you'll need either a drop 8 or drop 5 bat if you're in that division of USSSA play). And this bat is awesome as it will function well for contact and power hitters alike. The bat is considered a 3-piece bat as it has a (1) composite barrel (2) composite handle and a (3) connection piece that make up the entire build of the bat. And the EKO Composite material that the bat features should offer a huge barrel length and incredible sound when you hit a baseball!

Lastly, it is worth noting that the bat will have the new-looking USSSA baseball stamp that bears the words "NTS Tested".


A 100+ year old company does not get to be in existence today without knowing how to take care of their customers.

Louisville Slugger Meta -8 Kevin Killgore Parent

Pros: Well built bat, has pop, but too early to tell regarding the durability as it was only used in one tournament. The color scheme is nice as well. Hopefully we get as much use out of it as previous Louisville Sluggers.

Cons: None so far.

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.
