Louisville Slugger MLB Prime Bellinger Maple Wood Baseball Bat: WBL2437010
Upgrade to MVP-level performance with this Louisville Slugger MLB Prime Bellinger maple wood baseball bat. Part of Louisville Slugger's MLB Prime Series, this bat offers a custom CB35 turning model shape. It was developed specifically for 2019 NL MVP Cody Bellinger and offers a slightly end-weighted balance to match the slugger's powerful style. Bellinger is all business at the plate and this bat follows suit with a handsome, no-nonsense aesthetic and natural-looking maple wood. This wood selection helps maximize power as maple is denser and stiffer than other common bat woods, including ash and birch. The seamless black decals offer a nice pop of contrast against this bat's exceptional grain.
One of the signature features of Louisville Slugger's MLB Prime series bats is the EXOPRO finish. Tested to be at least three times harder than the brand's former EXOARMOR finish, EXOPRO adds more hardness and durability to these elite bats. What more, this model comes bone rubbed from the factory to ensure a tightly-packed grain structure and also is ink dotted to prove that it's truly MLB-grade. Slugger has also redesigned its knob medallion for this model year with easy-to-read info, such as the wood species, length and model name.
This Louisville Slugger MLB Prime Bellinger maple wood baseball bat is covered with a 30-day limited warranty through Louisville Slugger.

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.
