Description

Identical in quality and craftsmanship to what they send to the big leagues, MLB Prime features the top 3% of all wood that Louisville Slugger harvests, straighter and harder than any other bat. MLB Prime is big league wood. Graded for quality at 6 different stages from the time the tree is cut until the bat is finished, including the final step - the MLB ink dot slope of grain test. Veneer wood logs ensure maximum straightness and eliminate natural defects developed during tree growth. Vacuum drying guarantees the entire billet is dried evenly and at a pace healthiest for the wood. Bone rubbing compresses every cell to ensure your bat is as hard as it can get. Advanced finishing process (HD Finish) provides the final touch, solidifying the manufacturing processes so your bat is identical to the bats used by big league guys. The maple in this bat is going to create a harder surface and optimal opportunity to send balls over the fence. Maple is slightly less forgiving on contact but as a result, will create a more durable piece of lumber.

The Louisville Slugger MLB Prime Maple D195 Wood Baseball Bat (WTLMLBPMD19) features a medium sized barrel diameter, 15/16 inch handle, and a cupped end cap for a traditional feel.

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.
