Wow! Jeff Parent

Pros: I was extremely surprised how much pop this bat has right out of the wrapper. The sweet spot is huge. My son's exit velocity made an immediate jump of almost 10mph off the tee. The bats performance is well worth the investment

Cons: Due to the barrel mass the bat is a little more end loaded then the other prime models. Not a big issue for us , but you can feel the difference initially.

Best Bat made this year! Marshall phillips Player

Pros: Has the most pop out of any bat I’ve swung. I’ve swung a lot of bats in my career and this one is probably the best one yet! Doesn’t sting and you don’t have to even break it in at all. The price is high, but this bat is the best one on the market!

Not as Good as Advertised Greg B Parent

Pros: Excellent pop when hitting on the sweet spot. Not as hot out of the wrapper as most reviews claim. My son (13 yo) has used the bat since Christmas (over 1000 swings) and feels it's just now getting broke in. Pop is not as good as some of the Marucci or DeMarini composites he's used in the past Looks good out of the wrapper

Cons: Cosmetically looks sweet brand new but paint chipped within two weeks on both the barrel and the knob. I can understand a paint chip on the knob but paint chipping off the barrel of a $500 bat is unacceptable. Since Wilson/Louisville won't cover this under warranty we're stuck with it. I can promise you if Marucci came out with a BBCOR composite I'd purchase that instead Significantly worse on mis-hits that are not right on the sweet spot. Sweet spot definitely seems smaller than advertised Feels more end loaded than balanced compared to previous bats he's used (both to him and me)

The Best Bat of 2019 James Holloway Parent

Pros: This bat has sooo much POP! My son hit with this bat in practice and the ball just flies. There is definitely a visible exit velocity increase, as the ball comes off hot. My son stated that there is little to no vibration on ball impact and the bat has a great feel. He has historically used the DeMarini CF Zen; thus this is his first Louisville Slugger. He stated that in comparison, the LS Meta Prime has the most POP. We'll have to see how this bat holds up, this baseball season, in order to truly judge durability; thus from what I've seen thus far this has been a very worthwhile purchase.

Cons: None at the moment. Some will balk at the price, but it is a small investment for the elite hitter seeking to take his game to the next level.

Sweet bat, just not sure how long it will last.... Dave Parent

Pros: Bought this as a bat to last a couple years for my 13 year old son. He loves the feel of the bat. A little end loaded, but it feels lighter than some of the heavier end loaded bats. The bat has some pop and he has confidence walking up to the plate. There isn't a lot of vibration and feels like a wood bat when you hit it right.

Cons: Price, but if the bat lasts two years its worth it. Not sure if it will though. After two practices and about 200 swings, the paint has chipped in three different places. He has been playing baseball since he was 6 and this is the first bat that has ever chipped.

Best Bang for your Buck Parker D. Player

Pros: I got the Meta Prime as soon as it hit the website. From the first ball hit, I was in love with it. This is the best BBCOR bat I've ever used!!! Pop from this bat is second to none. There is no break in time required so it's game ready right out of the package. Balanced feel so you can get more bat speed. There is little to no vibration. Massive sweet spot so nearly every ball hit feels like a home run, even jam shots and hits off the end cap feel good. If you're looking for a bat with great balance and even better pop, this is the bat for you.

Cons: Absolutely none

Cons: Would like the price to come down before I buy another. Also, this bat was not available for about a month or more. Not sure if that was intentional, but a bit of a downer from Louisville Slugger.

Have a question about the Louisville Slugger Meta Prime BBCOR Baseball Bat: WTLBBMTP9B3? Ask our team of experts and they will respond within 24 hours.

Can you tell me any info about this bat? How does it compare to 918 Prime?
Scott
This 2019 Louisville Slugger Meta Prime BBCOR Baseball Bat (WTLBBMTP9B3) will differ from the Prime 918 as the Meta will have a 1/2" longer barrel than the Prime 918, it is stiffer and lighter than the Prime 918 and it will have a different sound than the Prime 918.
Ben
In your opinion what do you think is better the 919 Meta Prime BBCOR or the 2019 CF Zen BBCOR?
Rylan
Because of the strict certifications of BBCOR their will not be a performance difference between the 2019 Louisville Slugger Meta Prime BBCOR Baseball Bat: WTLBBMTP9B3 and the 2019 CF ZEN. It will be more about what the individual hitter fits better for them.
Max
I am looking for a bat for the high school season in Cincinnati, Ohio. Can this bat be used in colder weather?
Todd Askren
The 2019 Louisville Slugger Meta Prime BBCOR Baseball Bat: WTLBBMTP9B3 would be a great option for your high school season in Ohio. The 2019 Louisville Slugger Meta Prime BBCOR Baseball Bat: WTLBBMTP9B3 will perform well in colder, but if it is getting below 40 degree Fahrenheit I would not suggest using.
Max
Why is this bat unavailable in 31/28? I cannot find one anywhere.
Jeff
The demand for the 2019 Louisville Slugger Meta Prime BBCOR Baseball Bat: WTLBBMTP9B3 has been high since the release date. Unfortunately, it seems as though they cannot make the bat fast enough to match the demand.
Tyler
In the features section of this bat it says the bat is usable in 50x70 play and in little league. However, is it usable in 60x90 NFHS play for high school ball?
Jeremy
Yes, the 2019 Louisville Slugger Meta Prime BBCOR Baseball Bat: WTLBBMTP9B3 will be allowed in all high school baseball.
Tyler
Is this a balanced bat and would this be a good bat for a contact line drive hitter?
Tad
The 2019 Louisville Slugger Meta Prime BBCOR Baseball Bat: WTLBBMTP9B3 will be a balanced bat and would be a great option for a line drive contact hitter. The light swing weight with monster barrel will give the player great feel and quick through the zone with the light swing weight.
Max
What is the difference between the 2019 Meta Prime and Prime 919?
Darren
The 2019 Louisville Slugger Meta Prime BBCOR Baseball Bat: WTLBBMTP9B3 features new EKO Composite barrel construction, a new RTX end cap to improve barrel shape and sound, and a new connection system which allows a unique feel on contact for each player.
Logan
Is this bat stiff and most like the 618 from Slugger? I liked the 618, one piece stiff feel. This bat seems like it may have the stiff one piece feel but the advantages offered but composite?
Anthony
No, the 2019 Louisville Slugger Meta Prime BBCOR Baseball Bat: WTLBBMTP9B3 is a three-piece bat that will offer flex in the barrel. It will not feel stiff like a one-piece bat.
Tori
I've been told that the 2019 Louisville slugger Meta prime will dent or break in cold weather. What is the coldest temp you can use one without damaging it?
James seagroves
The possibility to damage a bat can occur under any conditions, however we suggest to not use a composite bat like the 2019 Louisville Slugger Meta Prime BBCOR Baseball Bat: WTLBBMTP9B3 in any weather below 55 degrees.
Tyler
What is the break in period for the Meta Prime? I have read there is little or no need for any prep for the bat.
Scott
The 2019 Louisville Slugger Meta Prime BBCOR Baseball Bat: WTLBBMTP9B3 will require a slight break in period of 100-200 swings.
Cameron
Is this bat more of a balanced bat or end loaded? Is it similar to the prime?
Cooper Hext
The 2019 Louisville Slugger Meta Prime BBCOR Baseball Bat: WTLBBMTP9B3 is a balanced bat. It will be be very comparable in feel to the 2019 Louisville Slugger Prime 919 BBCOR Baseball Bat: WTLBBP919B3. The biggest difference is the Meta Prime has a larger barrel called the EKO composite barrel for optimized performance.
Tori
Why is the 31" meta prime discontinued? What is the reason? Will it be re-issued?
jay
We were not told directly the reason for discontinuing the 31" models of the 2019 Louisville Slugger Meta Prime BBCOR Baseball Bat: WTLBBMTP9B3. However, I can only assess that the reason had to do with the large barrel on these Meta Prime models being too large to effectively make them in shorter models. As a result, I would be surprised if they were to be manufactured again in a 31" size.
Tyler
Would you have any concerns of this bat being banned sometime this year? If so would there be any support from LS or replacement?
Charlie Lyddon
As of now we do not have any concerns about the Louisville Slugger Meta Prime BBCOR Baseball Bat: WTLBBMTP9B3 being banned at all this year. And if any ban does happen Louisville Slugger will provide support for the 2019 Louisville Slugger Meta Prime BBCOR Baseball Bat: WTLBBMTP9B3 ban.
Max
Is this bat end loaded or balanced?
J
The Louisville Slugger Meta Prime BBCOR Baseball Bat: WTLBBMTP9B3 has a balanced swing weight.
Dani
If it adds 10mph to exit velocity as a review has claimed, won't it be banned soon?
Matt
With the information that we are given at this point the Louisville Slugger Meta Prime BBCOR Baseball Bat: WTLBBMTP9B3 will not be banned, because it has already met the BBCOR certification.
Max
With the bat being a 3 piece, if you get jammed will the bat break in 2?
Eli Gipson
Bats are not intended to be hit near the connection point, so that is the weakest point meaning you'd want to avoid hitting in that area. The Louisville Slugger Meta Prime BBCOR Baseball Bat: WTLBBMTP9B3, or any bat, can potentially break on any miss-hit, but are usually able to withstand some abuse if it isn't repetitive.
Logan
Does this bat come in size 31/28?
Craig
The Louisville Slugger Meta Prime BBCOR Baseball Bat: WTLBBMTP9B3 was initially released with the intention of offering a 31/28 option. However, Louisville Slugger has discontinued that size and as a result the 32/29 will be the smallest size available.
Tyler
What is the MOI of this bat? Is it more of an end loaded bat?
Sq65
The 31'' 2019 Louisville Slugger Meta Prime BBCOR Baseball Bat: WTLBBMTP9B3 has a 730 MOI. It is a balanced bat and not end loaded.
Tori
My son has borrowed a friend's Meta Prime and the thing hits like one of the drop 5 boom bats. It's crazy. He wants me to buy him one, but I'm convinced it'll be ruled illegal in a matter of weeks as the HS season gets underway. Any rumors about this?
Ben
At this time, we have not heard of any disqualification rumors for this Louisville Slugger Meta Prime BBCOR Baseball Bat (WTLBBMTP9B3). However, that does not mean they are not out there. If you were concerned about that and wanted to look at other two-piece, all-composite bats for the 2019 season; you could always checkout the Project 3 ADV from Easton -or- the Cf Zen from DeMarini. [NP]
Ben
Which bat do you think has more pop, the 919 Meta Prime or the 2018 Prime?
Tori
I think both models will perform very well and have a similar pop to them if you hit the ball on the sweet spot. However, the new Louisville Slugger Meta Prime does seem to be an upgraded model and has a rather large sweet spot to it. It also has a very slight, end-loaded feel to it when held in your hands, so that is also something to consider.
Kyle J.
What’s a better bat, the Meta Prime or the DeMarini CF Zen?
Ian
Both the Louisville Slugger Meta Prime BBCOR Baseball Bat: WTLBBMTP9B3 and the CF Zen are good two-piece all composite bats. The big difference is the Meta Prime will be much stiffer on contact and feature a slightly longer barrel profile.
Cameron
Which is better, the Easton ADV or this?
Shea
Both the Easton ADV and the Louisville Slugger Meta Prime BBCOR Baseball Bat: WTLBBMTP9B3 are great bats with the Meta Prime featuring a stiffer connection point. Unfortunately though the best one would boil down to personal preference and opinion.
Cameron
Can this bat be used in cold temperatures?
Kathy
As with all composite barrel bats, the Louisville Slugger Meta Prime BBCOR Baseball Bat: WTLBBMTP9B3 is not recommend for extended use in temperatures below 55 degrees. As the colder the temperature, the increase in potential for cracking the bat. We suggest limiting the amount of hits this bat has in colder weather.
Daveron
My son swings a LS 618 Solo. Will this bat be comparable to the performance of that bat?
Damon
Yes, the Louisville Slugger Meta Prime should be one of the highest performing bats on the market, with a very large sweet spot. It will not be quite as balanced or light swinging as the Solo 618 however.
Kyle J.
I’m 5’6 and I weigh 145 and I’m not little, I have muscle mass. Should I get a 32 or a 33?
Donovan caballero
Per your height and weight, we would recommend getting the Louisville Slugger Meta Prime BBCOR Baseball Bat: WTLBBMTP9B3 in a 32 inch model.
Cameron
What is the difference between this bat and the 2018 Easton Ghost X? Barrel size comparison?
Baseballbanger
Both bats are two-piece, fully composite models with the 2 5/8" barrel diameter. The Louisville Slugger Meta Prime does seem to have a slightly larger sweet spot area than most BBCOR models out there, however it also feels slightly end-loaded compared to other models, so I would not recommend unless the player is strong enough to handle that sort of balance.
Kyle J.
Is it aluminum?
Bryce Bergeron
The Louisville Slugger Meta Prime BBCOR Baseball Bat: WTLBBMTP9B3 is a two-piece composite bat.
Cameron
What degree weather can you use the Meta Prime in?
Bryce Bergeron
Since the 2019 Louisville Slugger Meta Prime BBCOR Baseball Bat: WTLBBMTP9B3 is a composite bat, we don't recommend using it below 55 degrees.

Kyle
When will a 31" be available in the Meta Prime?
Marni Sampair
At the time of this positing, we have the Louisville Slugger Meta Prime BBCOR Baseball Bat: WTLBBMTP9B3 31" option not available until after the first of April 2019.
Daveron

Stephen Dickinson

Cameron
When will the 32"/29 oz size be back in stock?
Raleigh Jackson
We have placed an order for more models of the 2019 Meta Prime BBCOR (WTLBBMTP9B3) with Louisville Slugger, but it may be several weeks until that order can be fulfilled, and they have not given us an estimated arrival date at this time. Be sure to sign up to receive an email when they come back in stock, as our most recent shipment sold out rather quickly.
Kyle

Jeremy bowman

Cameron
Which of the BBCOR composites, regardless of make, is most similar in balance to the 2017 glow stick Rawlings Quatro?
Rich
The Louisville Slugger Meta Prime BBCOR Baseball Bat: WTLBBMTP9B3 will be slightly more balanced. The Louisville Slugger 919 would be closer in balance and the 2019 Rawlings Quatro Pro BBCOR Baseball Bat: BB9Q3 would also be very similar in balance. (NP)
Tori
The inventory seems depleted for this bat in the 32" and 33" models and I would certainly prefer to have a 2020 rather than overpay for a 2019. Are they releasing anytime soon?
Bill
At the time of this posting it appears that Louisville Slugger has discontinued the 2019 Meta Prime BBCOR (WTLBBMTP9B3), meaning they have transitioned their factories over to producing the 2020 models that will release this summer. It does not appear that we will be able to order more models of this bat from Louisville Slugger at this time.
Kyle

What is the return policy on this bat? Nobody in our area has this bat to swing it and test it. I’d hate to buy it and not be able to return it if my son doesn’t like the feel of it.

We are unable to accept used bats back for a refund nor exchange. The Louisville Slugger Meta Prime BBCOR Baseball Bat: WTLBBMTP9B3 must remain unused to be returned. We suggest the player take dry cuts with the bat to make sure they like the feel of the bat. Once it hits a ball, it becomes a used option and no longer available for a return.

I’ve been looking into this bat recently, but have seen that it can crack under 50-55 degrees. I am from the Northeast, where the temps are sometimes under 55, and plan on using this bat year round. Any suggestions on if it is worth it or not?
Aidan
The Louisville Slugger Meta Prime BBCOR Baseball Bat: WTLBBMTP9B3 can certainly be used in colder weather but it is more ideal when the temperature is above 55 degrees Fahrenheit. If using this bat consistently in temperatures below this, it is advisable to use a bat warmer sleeve or something that will keep the barrel warmer than the outside temperature.

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.
