Louisville Slugger Omaha -10 USA Baseball Bat: WTLUBO5B1020
This Louisville Slugger is a great choice for any players who are just beginning to get serious about the game or for parents looking for great value. The Omaha -10 USA baseball bat gives your player the confidence they need each time they pull the bat out of their bag, and you can feel good about providing a bat from one of the top brands in baseball.
Constructed with ST7 Alloy for more power, the Omaha is a one-piece bat made to feel stiffer on contact for more energy transfer to the ball. When moving up to the larger, heavier bat, it's important to choose one that lets young players keep their form. While using a big barrel design makes contact more likely, the balanced, lightweight feel of this bat helps youth players continue to swing with proper technique. To help provide this balanced feel, the Omaha uses the Hub End Cap, taking some of the weight out of the end of the bat.
While Louisville Slugger is well-known for the durability of its bats, and alloy bats in general are very durable and likely to hold up for multiple seasons, it still offers a one-year warranty to give you extra confidence in your purchase.

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.
