Louisville Slugger Meta -11 Fastpitch Softball Bat: WBL2622010
You've waited and now the drop 11 Meta is here for fastpitch ladies to enjoy!
Not only do experienced fastpitch players want to use the best equipment, but even some young ladies wish to have the best bats around when they head to the dish! And that is why Louisville Slugger has finally crafted the Meta bat in the drop 11 length-to-weight ratio. This bat is built with a 2-piece, all-composite design that seems to dominate the fastpitch scene. To dive even further into the bat, you'll notice that it features Slugger's Mash Composite Barrel that displays a gapped wall design. That design allows for space between the 2 walls of the barrel and when those walls work in unison, they allow for top performance (while also ensuring that the bat doesn't eclipse the allowable performance threshold).
As mentioned above, the drop 11 length-to-weight ratio makes this Meta a must-have for young ladies, but this sizing should also attract some older slap hitters that want a lightweight bat that will be easy to control while hitting softballs to all parts of the diamond!

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.
