Nice, durable bat so far Dave Player

Pros: The bat is light so you can get it through the zone quickly. The knob is flared if you like that feel. The barrel is about the size of a 271 turn, in my opinion. It has good pop. I've used it in the cage 5 or 6 times for about 300 strikes. Most of them have been barreled balls, some off the end and handle - no problems. It's a nice looking bat.

Cons: I understood the AJ turn to be more similar to the 243 turn and to be more end-loaded. It is more balanced than end-loaded, which is not my preference.

What is the difference from 2017 model?
TedB
The 2018 Louisville Slugger MLB Prime Neon Wolf Birch Wood Baseball Bat: WTLWPBAJ1A17 will be pretty similar. It will feature a slightly end loaded swing and birch wood construction.
Dan
How does the birch compare to maple for longevity? I typically get a full season out of my Prime maple.
MikeS
The 2018 Louisville Slugger MLB Prime Neon Wolf Birch Wood Baseball Bat: WTLWPBAJ1A17 should last just as long as a similar model made from maple as long as the ball is being squared up properly. With any wood bat, if you hit a ball towards the end cap or handle then there is a good chance the bat will break.
Cameron
Does this bat come with a warranty?
Nick
No, the 2018 Louisville Slugger MLB Prime Neon Wolf Birch Wood Baseball Bat: WTLWPBAJ1A17 does not come with a warranty.
Tori
How do the dimensions of this bat compare/contrast with the LS Prime Birch 243 Melt that's offered in red and black?
Dave
The 2018 Louisville Slugger MLB Prime Neon Wolf Birch Wood Baseball Bat: WTLWPBAJ1A17 has more of a i13 turn model design. This makes it very similar to a 243 turn model minus the barrel diameter being slightly smaller. In turn, this makes the bat slightly end loaded compared to a true end loaded feel with a 243.
Cameron
Is this the Adam Jones model? What would be another similar bat to the AJ10 Louisville Slugger?
KF
The 2018 Louisville Slugger MLB Prime Neon Wolf Birch Wood Baseball Bat: WTLWPBAJ1A17 is not modeled after a specific player. Professionals often customize their equipment. This consumer product may vary from the model customized by a pro for game day. The AJ10's maple wood and slight end load swing weight can be found with the 2019 Louisville Slugger Select I13 Series 7 Maple Wood Baseball Bat: WTLW7MI13A18+G and the Louisville Slugger Legacy M9 C243 Series 5 Maple Wood Baseball Bat: WTLW5M243A18.

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.
