Louisville Slugger Solo -5 USSSA Baseball Bat: WBL2473010

Gear up for your last season or two of USSSA Baseball with a Solo in the drop 5 sizing.

Bat Benefits

It is a requirement for the 14U division of USSSA Baseball, to have a drop 5 sized bat (or a BBCOR bat). If you are in search for a light-feeling drop 5 bat, then no need to look beyond this offering of the Solo from Louisville Slugger. The bat has a good sized 2 5/8" barrel, but the Premium SL Hyper alloy on the handle and barrel + the SPD Composite end cap create an ultra light feel that should be as balanced as most drop 5 bats out there on the market.

As well, this edition of the SOLO features the new look USSSA Baseball stamp. It will bear the words "NTS Tested" on it.

Warranty

A 100+ year old company does not get to be in existence today without knowing how to take care of their customers. Louisville Slugger most definitely covers this bat with a full twelve (12) month manufacturer’s warranty period that extends from the purchase date. If you buy the bat from JustBats and run into any warranty issues with those 12 months, do not hesitate to reach out to our Bat Experts. They are knowledgeable on bat warranties and will be able to get you all the needed info to begin a warranty replacement process with Louisville Slugger.

Great Transition Bat!!!! Tyler Elkins Coach

Pros: If you have a smaller kid having to transition from -10/-8 to a -5 for 13U baseball like mine, this is an Excellent bat to do so because of how balanced the swing weight feels. Honestly it kind of feels like a -8 & my 5'/80lbs. 12U son handles the bat without sacrificing much swing speed at all!!! Hope this helps if you're on the fence.

Cons: None so far, but unfortunately like most 1 piece bats there will probably be some hand sting on mis-hits!!!!

Pros: My son has some good hits in the cage, hasn't been used in the game yet. You can tell the bat has good pop and he likes the feel of the bat. It has a good stiff feel to it. Hopefully it can translate to the game.

Cons: I put 3 stars on the durability just because the bat is fairly new and hasn't been game tested.

How does this bat compare with the Marucci Posey?
Richard Fackler
The Louisville Slugger Solo -5 USSSA Baseball Bat: WBL2473010 is also a one-piece alloy bat with balanced swing weight, like the Posey model from Marucci. The main difference is the Solo does not offer any anti-vibration technology.
Cameron
What is the difference between the LS Solo -5 and the LS Omaha 519 -5? Trying to decide for my 14 son, he always has swung an Omaha.
Kevin Tippet
The Louisville Slugger Solo -5 USSSA Baseball Bat: WBL2473010 and the LS Omaha are both one-piece alloy bats with balanced swing weights. With that being said, the Solo will feature a composite end cap, as well as a lighter alloy material, to give the bat a more balanced swing compared to the Omaha.

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.
