Louisville Slugger LXT -8 Fastpitch Softball Bat: WBL2545010
Reach for a drop 8 LXT Fastpitch Bat if you feel as though you have the skills to wield a bat that is a little heavier up at the dish!
The LXT is going to be a three-piece bat that serious fastpitch players will want in their hands when they are up at the dish in a crucial situation. It is a three-piece bat that is made up of (1) a composite barrel, (2) a composite handle & (3) a connector piece. The barrel is going to feature the Speed Composite Design and the signature piece of that design is the Single-Disc PBF Technology. That tech allows for an extra-long sweetspot that should reach closer to the connector piece and closer to the end-cap. However, even though the sweetspot is quite lengthy, the balance point of the bat should not be thrown off and result in the bat's barrel feeling too heavy.
Also, be certain not to gloss over the VCX2 Connector Piece that allows for independent movement between the barrel and handle. Due to that feature of the connector piece, it should allow for this LXT to display a very comfortable swinging experience.
This drop 8 will be a heavy bat to swing. However, the weight on the bat should be distributed fairly evenly across the entire length of it. The thing that will make it feel heavier is that there will be a couple more ounces on this bat when compared to the extremely popular drop 10 size that many ladies are using. This drop 8 bat will be one that gets used by highly skilled hitters and power hitters.

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.
