Louisville Slugger Prime Y271 Maple Wood Youth Baseball Bat: WTLWYM271D20
Help young players hone offensive skills with this Louisville Slugger MLB Prime Y271 youth wood baseball bat. Louisville Slugger believes that players of all ages should have access to quality baseball equipment, and that's what they had in mind when they designed this 271 turn model bat.

Bat Benefits
The 271 turn of this MLB Prime youth bat is quite similar to a 110 turn model, but it provides a bit more of an end-loaded feel thanks to the slightly quicker taper from the barrel to the handle. The barrel is a lot more defined in this bat, so younger players can focus on generating more power when they make contact. This MLB Prime Y271 maple wood bat is a great choice for power and contact hitters alike. The maple wood provides a higher density and increased hardness on contact, and this version features deep red and electric blue colors with red branding to help it stand out from other bats. Like all other MLB Prime youth bats, this Louisville Slugger bat has seamless decals and an EXOARMOR finish that provides extra hardness to minimize breakage and creates that satisfying crack when players make contact.

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.
