Description

Louisville Slugger MLB Prime High Roller C271 Maple Wood Baseball Bat: WTLWPM271D20

When the chips are down, get ready to step up to the plate like a High Roller. Louisville Slugger's new MLB Prime High Roller baseball bat combines their classic C271 shape with a distinct look that oozes with pro-grade class. The C271 is Louisville's most popular standard turning bat for pros and features a medium barrel and standard grip. This classic MLB-grade maple design features the brand's most balanced feel for fast hands and maximum power at the plate.

Bat Benefits

This C271 High Roller design sports a deep flame finish on the handle that gently fades into a glossy black at the barrel. A classic "LS" logo and other text are emblazoned in metallic gold throughout. All logos and text blend naturally with the wood grain thanks to Louisville's proprietary Seamless Decal technology. This baseball bat is sealed with the new state-of-the-art EXOPRO finish for a high-gloss look and improved durability over previous EXOARMOR models. Stats like wood type, and length have been added on an easy-to-read knob cap that is encircled by the bat's model name and number.

Louisville Slugger improved the cup design of their baseball bats for the MLB Prime series. This High Roller C271 features a new Craftsman-style cup that has been engineered to increase strength and contact response over the life of the bat. The overall result is a classic pro-grade wood bat that is reimagined with better performance for both sluggers and contact hitters in today's game.

Warranty

Louisville Slugger's MLB Prime series baseball bats, including the C271 High Roller, are covered with a 30-day limited warranty. This covers defects in workmanship and materials but also covers some normal use issues like severe dents, structural cracks, and cup deformations.

Buyer beware Kevin Parent

Pros: Have not had it long enough to know the pros.

Cons: I was nervous about purchasing a wood bat but had to switch this season. I purchased a Louisville wood bat because of its history when others on my sons team were buying Marucci/Victus . My sons Louisville bat started chipping from pitches within two weeks of use and knob decal fell off. Luckily , my son can still use the bat, but for the price the quality is not there for that price point. I will be purchasing Marucci/Victus wood bats going forward.

Never saw a game Nick Primm Parent

Pros: She's pretty.

Cons: Bought it for my son for Christmas. It never made it to live action. He used it in batting practice in the cages during travel pre-season and it split nearly from stem to stern. $160 for nothing. Because he got it for Christmas and didn't use it for almost 5 months, the warranty had long since lapsed. Lesson learned. I'll never buy another wood bat until right before the tournaments start.

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.
