Louisville Slugger Prime Y271 Maple Youth Wood Baseball Bat: WTLWYM271A20

If there's a future Big Leaguer in your house, start them on the right track early with this pro-style bat. Louisville Slugger's Prime Y271 is a classic wooden baseball bat that is modeled after the MLB standard C271 turning model. This is Louisville's lightest youth bat, offering a -8 target drop and superb balance for developing players. With premium-grade maple, this baseball bat will stand strong until your little slugger is ready to hand it on to the next generation.

Bat Benefits:

This Prime Y271 youth bat from Louisville Slugger features a natural finish and black lettering with a flash of holographic color. All logos and text on the barrel feature Louisville's Seamless Decal technology, which means there are no raised lines or uneven surfaces. This bat is finished with the premium-grade EXOARMOR coating. That's the same finish featured on some pro-stock bats and it offers superior durability and hardness for years worth of base hits. The barrel also features a cupped design similar to adult versions, so your youth hitter won't sacrifice any performance on contact. With 28, 29, 30, and 31-inch options available, this Prime Y271 bat can offer plenty of room to grow.

Bought this bat for my 10 year old grandson. Hit a few times and is broken today. Is there any warranty?
Kathy Hadden
Unfortunately like most wooden bats, this model does not come with a manufacturer's warranty. You can also check under the "Features" section for each bat and if it has a warranty it will be listed there.
Is it Little League approved?
Yes, the Louisville Slugger Prime Y271 Maple Youth Wood Baseball Bat: WTLWYM271A20 is Little League approved even though it does not feature the USA Baseball stamp on it. Any wood bat that is made from a solid piece of ash, maple or birch would be legal without the stamp.
is this bat approved for pony rules? we use U.S.A. stamped bats, also would it be allowed for 11U travel ball? where USSA bats are used.

Wood bats will generally be approved on a league-by-league basis

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.
