Louisville Slugger Meta -8 Fastpitch Softball Bat: WBL2806010

Break through the competition with the explosive power possessed by the Louisville Slugger Meta -8 Fastpitch Softball Bat!

Bat Benefits

Slugger got after it when designing the barrel that would make up this two-piece, all-composite bat. And the result of their engineering tenacity is the new Mash Composite Design. The Mash barrel will come with a gapped wall design composed of an inner and outer barrel that will work together to produce top results. For Slugger's gapped design, the spacing between the inner and outer barrel will be large. As well, that spacing will be consistent throughout the entire hitting surface of this bat. That should help create top performance along the entire length of the bat's barrel. 

The innovation didn't stop with the barrel! The VTX connection point will bring back all the benefits of its predecessor (the VCX), but the visual of the connection piece will be improved as it has a new "lattice" look to it. And the F2X end cap will be lightweight and stunning to look at as it is made with a clear material that will look excellent.

This drop 8 model is going to be balanced in its feel! That will make it a very versatile bat as contact hitters, power hitters and even slap hitters could reach for this bat and achieve their top potential!


Louisville Slugger now backs their Meta Fastpitch Softball Bats with an Expanded One-Year Warranty against defects and some damages that may occur from routine on-field play. The warranty for Meta Fastpitch Softball Bats will end either 1 year after the date of your initial purchase or three months after you receive the last warranty replacement Meta Bat within that 1-year period, whichever comes later. For clarity, the maximum duration for this Extended Warranty Period will never exceed 1 year and three months from your original purchase date.

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.
