Louisville Slugger Nexus -12 Fastpitch Softball Bat: WBL2459010

The Nexus has the potential to be the bat that will get your young player prepped for the next level of softball!

Bat Benefits

The Nexus is the model to consider if you have a young batter who wants a fastpitch bat that will be built similar to the top-flight bats they might be using in a few years. Slugger has built it with a two-piece, all-composite design. As well, the bat is outfitted with the XCT Connection piece that is designed to limit the vibration that could get down to a batter's hands on a miss-hit.

Even if your player is a little more advanced in their fastpitch journey, we think they will enjoy using this drop 12 bat. We especially think they will enjoy it if they are a slap hitter. The drop 12 length-to-weight ratio and balanced feel will make it extremely easy to control and you'll be able to place softballs anywhere on the fastpitch diamond.

The Louisville Slugger Nexus -12 Fastpitch Softball Bat: WBL2459010 should be on the market on 10/13.
Daughter is new to slapping, but is also still hitting right handed some. Do you recommend this or new CF? She is 12 years old and 85 lbs.
The Louisville Slugger Nexus -12 Fastpitch Softball Bat: WBL2459010 is a great option for a younger hitter that needs a lighter bat. It can certainly be used for slap hitting as it will feature a balanced swing weight design.
Seems like the barrel is small compared to some of the other bats. How long is it from end cap to where it ends near the connection?
Unfortunately, we do not know the length of the barrel on the Louisville Slugger Nexus -12 Fastpitch Softball Bat: WBL2459010. Barrel length is typically only provided on slow-pitch 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.
