The Louisville Slugger MLB Prime wood baseball bat consistently offers the utmost quality and craftsmanship from year to year. These big league bats use MLB Grade wood which comes from only the top 3% of Louisville Slugger's wood. This results in the hardest hitting surface and the straightest grains in comparison to any other wood bat. The newest feature of all the MLB Prime models is the brand-new EXO ARMOR. This cutting-edge and innovative top coat doubles an already hard surface that will allow you the player to immediately notice a first-rate feel and unparalleled sound upon contact. It is the hardest in the game and harder means farther! Bone rubbing has become a necessity with wood bats to ensure that the grains and fibers become compressed while making the wood more dense. Not only will all MLB Prime bats come bone rubbed but they also feature a cupped end to improve balance and ensure a higher density piece of wood. Furthermore, the MLB Prime wood baseball bats are graded for quality at six different stages from the time the tree is cut until the bat is finished, including the final step - the ink dot slope of grain test for MLB approval.

The Louisville Slugger MLB Prime AJ10 Flame Maple Wood Baseball Bat: WTLWPMAJ1B16 Adult is a model that was created for four-time Gold Glove Award winner Adam Jones. The AJ10 turning model features a large, long barrel giving it a slight end loaded feel for phenomenal power. Additionally, there is a gradual transition to a standard handle and a knob taper that runs perfectly into the handle for a professional feel. This AJ10 game-day model features a flame tempered finish with an orange branding. Louisville Slugger: The Hard Truth! Buy yours today with fast, free shipping!

Will 100% Purchase This Bat Again Daniel Bratichak player

Pros: Feels great in your hands. I bought the 34 inch and the slight end load makes the bat feel much lighter than most 34/31. Edge grains are some of the straightest I have seen on a maple bat. The finish is beautiful. Looks just like the pictures. Wood is very hard. First swings were off a tee and the ball was jumping off the bat. Moved on to soft toss and live pitching and ball was screaming off the bat. Sounds great. Sweet spot is decent size and has a great sound when squared up.

Cons: None.

33"/33oz railroad tie William Vessey coach

Pros: Great pop, no matter where you hit it. The sweet spot is better than some aluminum bats I have. The finish is beautiful, and makes this look like a work of art. Swings with a very end loaded feel, but the handle and knob cut are very complimentary.

Cons: This bat is very heavy for it's length compared to Ash or other maple bats I've used. Overall it is way too heavy at 33oz with the heavy end load. I would say it swings like a 34oz bat. It's a giant log, and just too heavy to generate bat speed for me. I was expecting it to come in at 30oz given the cut.

Is the end-load on this bat like the Voodoo BBCOR (2016 model and prior) or is it more balanced?
Jake C
This 2017 Louisville Slugger MLB Prime AJ10 Flame Maple Wood Baseball Bat (WTLWPMAJ1B16 Adult) will feature a slight end-load to it. If you were using a Voodoo BBCOR bat prior to 2017, that Voodoo BBCOR should feel slightly end-loaded too. I think you could transition pretty easily between this AJ10 bat and the 2016-or-prior Voodoo BBCOR bats.

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.
