Louisville Slugger MLB Prime Adam Jones Maple Wood Baseball Bat: WTLWPMAJ1GM20
Adam Jones has brought his unique swagger and style to the MLB stage for many seasons. Celebrate his excellence with his signature bat from Louisville Slugger!
You can expect an illustrious company that's been around 100+ years (like Louisville Slugger) to be making a best-of-the-market bat. And they do it right here with their MLB Prime Series. This Adam Jones maple wood bat will display the ink dot test on it that shows it has the straightness of grains needed to be used within a Major League Baseball game. The reason you want a maple wood bat with really straight grains is that when a bat has straight grains, it can usually hold up a little longer and in the case that it breaks, the bat will break in a less dangerous manner. To further allow the bat to be top quality, Slugger adds their bone-rubbing process to the barrel of the bat and they also put their EXOPRO finish on the barrel that will make the barrel very hard. A harder wood bat barrel usually allows for harder and deeper hits.
Since this bat is top-of-the-line for Louisville Slugger and top-of-the-market for wood baseball bats, Louisville Slugger has agreed to cover it with a thirty (30) day manufacturer's warranty period. If you get the bat and experience a structural issue within 30 days of the purchase, please let our Bat Experts know. They will be happy to assist with getting you the info needed to begin a warranty process with 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.
