Louisville Slugger Prime DRIP I13 Maple Wood Baseball Bat: WTLWPMI13A20
Power hitters, rejoice: the DRIP MLB Prime bat is here! Featuring a striking matte black to matte gold finish, this big barrel bat is a popular choice for power hitters since this turning model — the I-13 — has even more mass in the barrel compared to the lighter 271 turn.

Bat Benefits
This MLB Prime bat is made of premium maple wood, which offers plenty of denseness to reduce breakage and durability to last all season. The EXOPRO hardcoat finish provides an appealing high-gloss finish and increases its overall hardness. Equipped with a Craftsman-Style Cup, the thicker width of the edge along the end of the barrel adds strength and durability to prevent chipping and cracking. Finally, the knob medallion indicates the bat length and wood species and grade for a premium finishing touch.

Louisville Slugger offers a limited 30-day warranty on all of their MLB Prime bats. Pick up your own DRIP maple wood baseball bat today and start racking up those RBIs and home runs.

A little disappointed for the price. Mike Piazza Player

Pros: Great Feel Perfect swing weight, slightly end loaded. Great handle

Cons: Soft. I Purchased a “LS select” bat of the same model for last season. Love that bat. It costs $50! That bat was bone rubbed, hard, had pop, and after one full season, it did not have one dent in the barrel! I still have it today. I wanted to upgrade to a “prime” level bat of the same turn ( I13). I was so excited. Took it out to the Live BP session today. Took 10 swings with it. I have 5 “laces” dents in the barrel! Was this bat even bone rubbed? After paying $149 for a “prime” maple, bone rubbed bat, I feel like it got shafted. The next hit on one of those dents, and sayonara to $149 prime bat! Really disappointed in Louisville Slugger. That’s all I use. I hope this is just a one off, and if so, I hope they do something about it to make amends. My friend has old hickory bat that is three seasons old and still no dents in the barrel! Maybe it’s time to change.

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.
