Louisville Slugger Select PWR BBCOR Baseball Bat: WBL2466010
The Select PWR is here for all the power hitters that are looking for a hybrid (alloy barrel & composite handle) bat from the oldest baseball bat manufacturer out there!
This bat will be more for the sluggers out there as it will have a slightly end loaded swing weight. If you are a hitter that is cranking baseballs to the warning track and over the outfield fence with consistency, then this is the BBCOR bat for you! If you are a younger high schooler that is a contact hitter, we would tell you to shy away. But if you are older, a contact hitter & possess quite a bit of strength; you could probably get after this Select PWR BBCOR.
All of the special technology that Louisville Slugger puts into the Select PWR only further increases its power potential. The barrel is made of the EXD Alloy that helps extend the length of the barrel by a half inch. That extra half inch helps contribute to the slight barrel heavy feel and it will lengthen the sweet spot on the bat too. In addition, the barrel and the handle will be fused together at the 3FX-PWR Connector. That connection point should allow for the transfer of energy to move from the handle to the barrel (and not the reverse) plus improve the feel of the bat when it hits a baseball. Above all, the 3FX-PWR system will create stiffness in the bat when it connects with a baseball. That stiffness (or lack of flex between the barrel and handle) is what a lot of power hitters want these days as they feel that with a stiff bat, all the energy they put into their swing goes into the baseball!
This bat will indeed be covered with a twelve (12) month warranty extended by Louisville Slugger. If you get the bat and notice something wrong with it before 12 months have passed from the purchase date, please let the Bat Experts at JustBats know about the situation. The Bat Experts are knowledgeable about the warranty replacement process for Louisville Slugger and they will get you the information needed to begin organizing the bat replacement process!

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.
