Bat Benefits

Back for its second go-around in the USSSA baseball ranks is the Louisville Slugger Meta! And Slugger has built it with the trusted combination of materials that they know will launch baseballs.

The Meta will be the three-piece and all-composite offering from Louisville Slugger and it features Slugger’s high quality and impressive EKO Composite. The EKO material is so astounding because it allows for a long barrel length while also allowing the bat to remain extremely lightweight and balanced. 

Earlier, we shouted out that Louisville Slugger touts this bat as a three-piece model. The reason they do that is that they consider the connector piece to be piece number 3 (in addition to the barrel and handle which are pieces number 1 and 2). The connector on this bat is the VCX2 piece that should limit vibration while also working with the EKO composite material to allow for an explosive feel at contact with a baseball.

This drop 5 is pretty unique. Oftentimes, other brands' drop 5 bats feel extra heavy even when the manufacturers try to make them light-feeling. That is not the case with this bat. Louisville Slugger is able to make this bat's EKO Composite barrel feel very lightweight even though it will be super long in length. Because of that, we can truly say that this drop 5 Meta USSSA bat can be swung by power hitters and contact hitters.

Warranty

Louisville Slugger has been making bats for generations and they know the value of a confident customer. To allow you to have confidence in their products, they offer a twelve (12) month manufacturer’s warranty period on this bat. If you get the bat from us, use it and then feel that you have a warranty issue with the bat; be sure to reach out to the JustBats Bat Experts. They understand the warranty process for Slugger and will be able to get you the information and details to begin a warranty replacement process with them.

This bat lives up to the Hype! Trevor Olson Coach

Pros: Great feel and pop right our of the wrapper. My daughter hit one out in the first game she used it at 13U. Loves the feel and no feedback in the handle at all. Great bat, swings good and looks good. Solid hits every time with this bat.

Cons: None.

"Well done, good and faithful Meta" Neal Tomlinson Parent

Pros: Love the color. Barrell is huge. Happy with the swing of it so far with great pop. Used Cat 8 and Cat 9 (non composite for the last few years), and wanted to upgrade to a composite and increase bat length. Took a chance on the meta and very pleased so far.

Cons: none at this time.

Is this bat legal for high school baseball?
Rodney Fields
The Louisville Slugger Meta -5 USSSA Baseball Bat: WBL2530010 will not be legal for HS as it is a -5. The Louisville Slugger Meta BBCOR Baseball Bat: WBL2522010 will be the HS model of this bat.
Dillon
Can this bat be used in the Babe Ruth league season?
Keith Bursey
Bats that are either USA or BBCOR stamped would be allowed for Babe Ruth baseball. The Louisville Slugger Meta -5 USSSA Baseball Bat: WBL2530010 would not be a legal bat.

Amber Possemato
There is no difference in the Louisville Slugger Meta -5 USSSA Baseball Bat: WBL2530010 and the prior model, the Louisville Slugger Meta -5 USSSA Baseball Bat: WBL2469010, besides the colorway.

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.
