Unbalanced Timothy Burt Coach

Pros: Bat looks amazing and has good pop.

Cons: My 11 yo son is crushing the ball with alloy Cat X -8 USSSA bat, and we just bought this for Rec. The bat is just so much more end loaded/unbalanced that he has too much trouble finding the barrel. As a coach, even I had trouble hitting balls to my team. Would only recommend to players that are used to or that like VERY end loaded bats.

Unreal Scott Parent

Pros: For a USA bat this has a ton of pop. Feels closer to a USSSA than a USA. The barrel is just one big sweet spot. It doesn't matter whether the ball is in on the hands or off the end of the barrel, it just never stings. Oh and it just sounds great. You don't get a real "ping" sound like most alloy barrels, it is more muted and is just satisfying to hear. My 11u player has a ton of bats and most are unimpressive for the price... this one isn't. He has used it in two games so far and he has two deep doubles and a dinger (almost two). Hands down he likes it better than his ADV 360, CF or The Goods and he is a real DeMarini fan boy to say the least.

Cons: The only negative so far is the grip could've used a bit of a flare instead of being very straight, which is the only reason for the 4 stars for feel. Nothing a new grip and some tape can't fix.

Best usa bat made. Nick M Coach

Pros: This bat has the most pop of any usa bat we’ve tried, surprised LL hasn’t banned it. Love the sound, doesn’t have that pingy aluminum sound found in most aluminum bats.

Cons: It’s so good all your teammates will buy one, so there will be 12 of the same bat in the dugout. Hard to locate yours.

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.
