Immediate improvement for my 10 year old son M H Parent

Pros: Our league transitioned to a USA bats this year. This drop 5 bat has added 20 feet to typical hits and much more power. Barrel is good size and little sting from hits off the sweet spot. Highly recommend if the weight is no to much to get bat around and keep bat speed.

Questions and Answers (10)

Have a question about the 2019 Louisville Slugger Select 719 -5 USA Baseball Bat: WTLUBS719B5? Ask our team of experts and they will respond within 24 hours.

Assuming comparable bat speed. Will the additional weight of the -5 compared to the -8 add velocity to the ball off the bat or do the USA rules require drop-down performance for heavier bats?
Mark
All things being comparable, the additional weight/mass will add velocity to the ball off the bat. With the USA certification, bats of the same size will have similar performance. The 2019 Louisville Slugger Select 719 -5 USA Baseball Bat: WTLUBS719B5 will experience increased velocity over the -8 option.
Daveron
My son is 5’3, 129 lbs, would you recommend 31" or 32"?
Gabe
With your son's specifications, we recommend ordering the Louisville Slugger Select 719 -5 USA Baseball Bat: WTLUBS719B5 in a size 31".
Dani
My grandson is 5’7” weighs 235 lbs and is 11 years old. He needs aUSA approved bat. What size would you recommend-32 or 33?
Kelly
With the player specs listed, a 33" option of the Louisville Slugger Select 719 -5 USA Baseball Bat: WTLUBS719B5 would best fit your player.
Daveron
My son is 14 yrs old, weighs about 110 lbs and is about 5'8" tall. What length do you recommend?
Josh
Based on your player's height and weight, I would recommend a 31" length of this 2019 Louisville Slugger Select 719 -5 USA Baseball Bat (WTLUBS719B5).
Ben
I’m 13, 5’7" and 120 pounds. I will be playing Babe Ruth Baseball this season. Would you recommend the Louisville Slugger Select 719 -5 USA Baseball Bat (WTLUBS719B5) or Louisville Slugger Prime 919 -10 USA Baseball Bat (WTLUBP919B10)?
Kian
Based on your age, height and weight, I would recommend the Louisville Slugger Select 719 -5 USA Baseball Bat (WTLUBS719B5). As long as you are comfortable with the drop 5 length to weight ratio, this model would not only provide more mass behind your hits but will also help as you start transitioning towards the drop 3 BBCOR bats that are required in high school.
Taylor
Is this bat aluminum or composite?
Tryan Henderson
This Louisville Slugger Select 719 -5 USA (WTLUBS719B5) bat is a hybrid model with an aluminum barrel and a composite handle.
Kyle
What drop would you recommend for a 15 year old?
Juan
I would normally recommend a -3 BBCOR model for a 15 year old, since they will be required to use a -3 model once they reach high school, and many middle school leagues require BBCOR as well. You can certainly use a -5 model if you need a lighter bat, but just be aware that it will not be allowed at age 16 and up.
Kyle
Is this bat approved for USSSA?
Rob Beeler
Though the Louisville Slugger Select 719 -5 USA Baseball Bat: WTLUBS719B5 will not feature the USSSA stamp, it would be allowed in travel tournament play. As a note, the USA certification on this option has a lower performance threshold. A player would be at a disadvantage to use a USA bat in USSSA travel tournament play.
Daveron
Is this bat a good bat for very strong hitters?
josh
The Louisville Slugger Select 719 -5 USA Baseball Bat: WTLUBS719B5 is effective for contact and power hitters. It helps with swing speed, while still generating power and would be a good choice for strong hitters.
Tori
Does this bat require a break in period before reaching maximum pop?

The Louisville Slugger Select 719 -5 USA Baseball Bat: WTLUBS719B5 features an alloy barrel and thus does not require a break-in period.

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.

Amazing bat Perfect A Son Player

Pros: No vibration at all no matter where you hit it. Amazing pop and not even broken in yet. Balance is good could be a little better but it’s not bad. It feels so good every time and just an outstanding bat.

Cons: May need to break in around 150-300 hits. A little tip roate the bat a little every hit it will break it in faster.

No pop out of the box - disappointing Paul LaBelle Parent

Pros: Nice looking bat, durability seems good.

Cons: My 11 year old son got this bat for 7th grade school ball and is completely disappointed with the performance out of the box and it doesn’t seem like it will get any better with a break in. Sweet spot hits don’t go very far into the outfield. Hits not on the sweet spot barely leave the infield on the ground.

Should I go with this or the Rawlings Quatro?
Brett
Both the 2019 Louisville Slugger Select 719 -8 USA Baseball Bat: WTLUBS719B8 and the Rawlings Quatro will be balanced bats with good performance. It will just come down to the personal preference of liking alloy or composite barrels. The Louisville Slugger 719 has an alloy barrel and the Rawlings Quatro has a composite barrel.
Tori
Between Louisville Slugger Select 719 -8 and the Rawlings Quatro, which one has more power / distance?
Simon
The USA certification puts a strict performance guidelines on all of the USA models that will make the 2019 Louisville Slugger Select 719 -8 USA Baseball Bat: WTLUBS719B8 and the 2019 Rawlings Quatro the same in power or distance.

Max
Does this bat have a break in period?
Tom Rhodes
No, the Louisville Slugger Select 719 -8 USA Baseball Bat: WTLUBS719B8 will not require a break-in period. A bat that features an alloy barrel, like this LS Select 719, will be hot out of the wrapper.
Cameron
I have read on the Louisville Slugger website that the LS 719 -8 USA bat is “the most end loaded bat in the 2019 Louisville Slugger lineup.” However, I have read on other sites (including yours) that the LS 719 -8 USA bat is a balanced bat. Can you tell me whether it is a balanced or end loaded bat? Also, have you guys measured it’s swing weight? Thanks
Rick McBride
We have not measured the swing weight, as those are done by the manufacturers and each typically has their own methods and way to rate the swing weight of their products. This bat is the most end loaded model in the Louisville Slugger lineup, but it is not a true end load. Balanced vs end load is more of a scale rather than a strict yes or no. Basically this bat is still considered balanced, but not quite as balanced as the other models they currently offer in the 2019 lineup.
Kyle
Is this bat the replacement for the 718 select from last year?
Justin
Yes, the 2019 Louisville Slugger Select 719 -8 USA Baseball Bat: WTLUBS719B8 is the new version/replacement for the 718.
Tori
Can I use this bat for USSSA?
Jackson
Some USSSA leagues will allow the use of USA bats like this Louisville Slugger Select 719 -8 USA, but USA bats will not have the same pop and performance of a USSSA bat. I would contact a coach or league official for more information on the bat rules for your league.
Kyle
Is this a USSSA approved bat?
Tiffany Clark
The Louisville Slugger Select 719 -8 USA Baseball Bat: WTLUBS719B8 is a USA approved bat. Although this bat is lower performing than a USSSA bat it certainly could be used in a USSSA league/game.
Cameron
I'm looking for a transition bat for my son who will be 13 next year, playing in Pony League. He is a high average hitter, but hasn't hit his growth spurt yet and doesn't rely on power. I'm more concerned with bat speed right now and do not think he will be ready for a -3 BBCOR. What are your thoughts on this bat for kids in this period, as there aren't a lot of -8 USA bats on the market.

The Louisville Slugger Select 719 -8 USA Baseball Bat: WTLUBS719B8 is a great option to consider for a player seeking a balanced bat to help assist with great bat speed and control. The -8 length to weigth ratio is a good weight for a player who is 13 years of age.

How does this compare to the 2020 version? Is it the same bat with a different paint job? How true is it to its sticker weight?

The only change to the Louisville Slugger Select -8 USA Baseball Bat: WTLUBS7B820, when comparing it to the previous year's Louisville Slugger Select 719 -8 USA Baseball Bat: WTLUBS719B8, is the colorway. As for actual weight of the bat, we have not had a chance to weigh a model to get a better idea of this.

Can this LS Select 719 be used in colder weather since it has an alloy barrel? Meaning like the LS Prime you recommend not using it under 55 degrees since it is a composite barrel.

An alloy barrel bat, like the Louisville Slugger Select 719 -8 USA Baseball Bat: WTLUBS719B8, would make a better option in colder weather compared to a composite bat (Prime).

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.
