Louisville Slugger Meta BBCOR Baseball Bat: WBL2522010
Slugger is here with their 4th rendition of the Meta BBCOR bat and it is poised to hit rockets across high school and college baseball fields, just like its predecessors!
This bat is built in Louisville Slugger's 3-piece design that incorporates (1) a composite barrel (2) a composite handle and (3) a connector piece. The composite barrel and handle will be made from Louisville Slugger's EKO Composite material. On the barrel, that material offers the great advantage of having a huge barrel length, but also a lightweight swing feel. The connector piece is made in the 3FX-PWR design. This piece provides a stiff feel between the barrel and handle at contact with a baseball. The stiff feel has become increasingly popular on bats within the last few years as batters feel like all the power they put into their swing goes into the baseball at contact. And be sure to also note that the 3FX-PWR piece limits the amount of vibration that can get down to a batter's hands on a miss-hit.
This drop 3, BBCOR bat will be an excellent choice for both power and contact hitters. The lightweight feel will make it great for the batter who is a contact hitter and needs the bat to help place the ball all over the field in order to be successful. Meanwhile, power hitters will love it as the stiff connection will make them feel as though all of their power is getting put into each and every hit. Lastly, every hitter will love it for the super long barrel length which will lead to the bat also having a lengthy sweetspot.

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.
