Description

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 2017 Louisville Slugger MLB Prime EL3-I13 Deep Flame With Black Maple Wood Baseball Bat: WTLWPMI13A16 Adult was designed specifically for MLB third baseman Evan Longoria. The Silver Slugger Award winner's bat features the I13 turning model. The I13 is considered to be Louisville Slugger's most popular big barrel bat. The thick transition from the large barrel to the standard handle results in a slightly end loaded swing weight that is preferred by power hitters who are swinging for the fence. This Evan Longoria version, dubbed the EL3-I13, highlights these features with a deep flame finished barrel and a high-gloss black handle. Louisville Slugger: The Hard Truth!

Have a question about the Louisville Slugger MLB Prime EL3-I13 Deep Flame With Black Maple Wood Baseball Bat: WTLWPMI13A16 Adult? Ask our team of experts and they will respond within 24 hours.

Which barrel in the Louisville Prime models has the largest and longest sweet spot? Is it the EL3-I13 turn model, AJ10 or the c243 turn bats?
George
There is not one wood bat that will have a larger sweet spot than the other. Wood bats are designed within a certain turn model as players have difference preferences for handle diameter, taper, knob construction and weight distribution; some will feature cupped ends while others will not - this will affect the weight distribution of the bat. All three of the bats mentioned (2017 Louisville Slugger MLB Prime EL3-I13 Deep Flame With Black Maple Wood Baseball Bat: WTLWPMI13A16 Adult, 2017 Louisville Slugger MLB Prime AJ10 Flame Maple Wood Baseball Bat: WTLWPMAJ1B16 Adult and c243 turn models) will have a slightly end loaded swing weight design and the taper will start much later on these bats which gives them the end-loaded design.
Cameron
Is the 32 inch a -3 and what is the barrel diameter?
Ron
The 2017 Louisville Slugger MLB Prime EL3-I13 Deep Flame With Black Maple Wood Baseball Bat: WTLWPMI13A16 Adult has an approximate -2 to -3 length to weight ratio and has an approximate 2 1/2" barrel diameter.
Logan
There's a spot on the bat almost mid way with no finish and a black mark in the middle. What does that mean?
Marc
That spot that you see on the Louisville Slugger MLB Prime EL3-I13 Deep Flame With Black Maple Wood Baseball Bat: WTLWPMI13A16 Adult is going to be the ink dot test that is done on some wood bats. The ink dot shows the quality of grain and the quality of wood used for the bat.
Cooper
What is the handle size?
Chuck
This Louisville Slugger MLB Prime EL3-I13 Deep Flame With Black Maple Wood Baseball Bat (WTLWPMI13A16 Adult) features the I-13 turning model and should have a handle diameter or 29/32".
Ben
Does this model have a flared knob and if so, how big is the flare? How does the knob on this model compare to the AJ10 model and standard i13 from Louisville Slugger? I prefer to have a bigger knob on an end loaded bat so that I have more control. Essentially my goal is to find an i13 turn model bat with a large tapered/flared knob. Do you know if any of these bats fit that criteria or another that would?
joego bats
The Louisville Slugger MLB Prime EL3-I13 Deep Flame With Black Maple Wood Baseball Bat: WTLWPMI13A16 Adult features a slightly flared knob. It you are seeking a LS model featuring a flared knob design then the 2018 Louisville Slugger MLB Prime Neon Wolf Birch Wood Baseball Bat: WTLWPBAJ1A17 would be a better option.

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.
