Louisville Slugger Xeno -11 Fastpitch Softball Bat: WBL2546010
This drop 11 Xeno fastpitch bat will blast softballs across the diamond this season!
This bat was originally a Slugger exclusive, but they have now allowed JustBats to start carrying them!
Louisville Slugger crafted this Xeno in the familiar way that players have loved for multiple seasons! First off, it will have a 2-piece, all-composite build which is to be expected. Then they fuse the barrel and handle of the bat together using their IST tech. This IST tech allows for a more stiff feel when connecting with a softball (there is less flex than what will be felt on the LXT bats also produced by Louisville Slugger).
As well, this bat displays the S1ID (Swing 1 Inner Disc) technology. This advancement has been shown on a number of Slugger items for many seasons. This tech creates a high-performing outer barrel wall that will flex when hitting a softball until it contacts 2 discs that have been placed inside the barrel of the bat. Slugger says the benefit of this feature is that the bat should perform at the top level on swing number 1. As well, those discs on the inside should allow the bat to perform up to the allowable level without exceeding it.
The drop 11 size and balanced feel of this Xeno will make it great for a young fastpitch lady that wants an advanced bat or it would also work for a more advanced lady that is a slap hitter and wants the bat to be extra lightweight.
The high-powered bats of Louisville Slugger are backed by a twelve (12) month manufacturer’s warranty! If you have bought this bat from JustBats and noticed that there is an issue on it before 12 months have passed from the purchase, please reach out to our Bat Experts. They will be able to get you the necessary information to reach out to Louisville Slugger and begin the warranty 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.
