One of the Best Bats on the field Jennie from the Block player

Pros: I absolutely love my Xeno bat. I have had every model for the past few years and I like the graphics and feel of this one the best. I tried the LXT and that is a great bat as well, but I wanted to stick with what I know and I know that this is one of the best bats you can buy for fastpitch softball.

Cons: None. Mine has been very durable since I bought it 4 months ago.

Team Favorite! Wade parent

Pros: Great bat, great pop! Increased hitting distance by at least 15%. No vibration on the hands. Had the bat for over a year on three leagues and it is still excellent. The whole team started using the bat because it outperforms the rest!

Cons: Highly recommended not to use in temperatures less than 60°F (to avoid damage/delamination).

When will this bat be available?
Tdaniel
The 2017 Louisville Slugger XENO Plus Fastpitch Softball Bat (FPXN170) will be available the first week of June 2016.
Jake
What's the difference between the XENO 170, 171 and 179?
onlyjersey
This 2017 Louisville Slugger XENO Plus Fastpitch Softball Bat (FPXN170) will come with a -10 length-to-weight ratio. The 171 model will differ as it has a -11 length-to-weight ratio. The 179 model will differ as it has a -9 length-to-weight ratio.
Ben
Our family have always been an Easton family but have recently had a bad taste in our mouths due an inferior product we purchased. What type of warranty comes with the 2017 XENO?
Mitchell
The 2017 Louisville Slugger XENO Plus Fastpitch Softball Bat: FPXN170 will feature a full twelve (12) month manufacturer's warranty. This would cover the bat if it were to become defective (end cap, cracking/breaking or anything else that would detract from the bat performing at optimal levels; bat chipping or grip tape would not be covered) for a free one-time replacement through Louisville Slugger.
Cameron
Do the 2016 and 2017 XENOs need to be broken in, or are they hot out of the wrapper?
George
This 2017 Louisville Slugger XENO Plus Fastpitch Softball Bat (FPXN170) and the 2016 XENOs were designed to be hot out of the wrapper. If there was a little break-in required on the bats, that break-in should have only consisted of a few rounds of hitting BP or a day of hitting off the tee.
Ben
What is up with the textured barrel instead of smooth like most bats?
phantom
The 2017 Louisville Slugger XENO Plus Fastpitch Softball Bat: FPXN170 will feature more of a textured barrel feel to help facilitate more backspin on the ball.
Cameron
What is the difference between the PLUS and HYPER?
David 28
The 2017 Louisville Slugger XENO Plus Fastpitch Softball Bat: FPXN170 is a two-piece fully composite bat with a balanced swing weight and the 2017 Louisville Slugger LXT Hyper Fastpitch Softball Bat: FPLX170 is a three-piece fully composite deign with balanced swing weight. The LXT models will feature PBF barrel technology which will create a larger sweet spot compared to the XENO bats; these bats will have S1iD barrel technology and will be stiffer on contact due to the iST Xs technology.
Cameron
What is the difference between the 2017 XENO and the 2016 XENO?
Zoe
The main difference between the 2017 Louisville Slugger XENO Plus Fastpitch Softball Bat: FPXN170 and the 2016 XENO is the connection point technology; the 2017 XENO will have a stiffer connection point which will provide slightly more pop.
Cameron
What size bat would I get my daughter that is 5'5" and 136 pounds?

Based on her height and weight we would recommend getting the 33" 23 oz 2017 Louisville Slugger XENO Plus Fastpitch Softball Bat: FPXN170.
Carter
My daughter is 5'4" and 125 lbs. What bat and length and weight should she get?
Bob
For a player of her size, I'd recommend getting the 2017 Louisville Slugger XENO Plus Fastpitch Softball Bat: FPXN170 in the 32" 22 oz. size.
Marcus
What size of bat should I get if I'm 5'6" and weigh 125 lbs?
maria
Based upon your height and weight, I would make a general recommendation of getting this 2017 Louisville Slugger XENO Plus Fastpitch Softball Bat (FPXN170) in the 33" length. As long as you feel that you can handle the 23 oz weight of the 33" model of this bat, I would recommend that size.
Ben
My daughter is 5'8" and weighs 140-150 lbs. What size would you recommend for her?
amanda
Based on her height and weight, we suggest a 33" model in the 2017 Louisville Slugger XENO Plus Fastpitch Softball Bat: FPXN170.
Jason
Just bought a Louisville bat & it was a 33" (-11) . My granddaughter has always had a 33" (-10). She is 16 and I am worried the -11 model may be too light. I am wondering if this will make a difference & should I send it back?
Sally
If your player is used to -10 bats (like this 2017 Louisville Slugger XENO Plus Fastpitch Softball Bat: FPXN170) and still wants that size of bat, then I would recommend maybe looking to getting your player a -10 model instead of the -11 that was purchased for your player (the -11 model will feature less mass than the -10 model and that lack of mass could bring down the performance your player will display).
Ben
What size of bat would you recommend for my daughter who is 5'2" and weighs around 115?
jason
Based on her height and weight we would recommend a 32"/22oz 2017 Louisville Slugger XENO Plus Fastpitch Softball Bat (FPXN170).
Carter
What does the -10 on the 2017 bat mean?
Vicgraphics
The -10 on the 2017 Louisville Slugger XENO Plus Fastpitch Softball Bat: FPXN170 means that the length of the bat will have a difference of 10 from the weight. For example if the 2017 Louisville Slugger XENO Plus Fastpitch Softball Bat: FPXN170 is 32" it will feature a 22 oz. weight.
Sean
Is the LXT Hyper a heavier bat than this XENO?
Sonya shillings
Neither this 2017 Louisville Slugger XENO Plus Fastpitch Softball Bat (FPXN170) or a model of the LXT Hyper is really going to have an advantage in regard to weighting or balance. Both bats will feature a pretty balanced feel overall. The difference will lie in the connection point. This XENO features a standard connection point that allows for some limited flex at contact and limited vibration reduction. The LXT Hyper features the 3-Piece design that provides more flex at contact and even more vibration reduction.
Ben
What bat would be recommended for a 12U player 5'3 145 pounds? She has had 2013 and 2016 Xeno. What is the difference between the XENO and LXT?
KC
It really depends on what kind of hitter the player is. If she is more of a power hitter I would recommend the 2017 Louisville Slugger XENO Plus Fastpitch Softball Bat: FPXN170, if she is more of a contact hitter then I would recommend the 2017 Louisville Slugger LXT Hyper Fastpitch Softball Bat: FPLX170. The Xeno is a two-piece composite but it hits like a one-piece because of it's stiff construction. The LXT is a three-piece composite with Louisville's New Improved TRU3 Three-Piece Connection, making the bat hit like a two-piece.
Linsey
My daughter is 5'5" and weighs around 155 and is 15. We have purchased a MAKO the last 3 years, and we're looking for a switch. Which Louisville Slugger bat is better for her and what size drop -10 should we purchase?
Dollhouse
Both the 2017 Louisville Slugger XENO Plus Fastpitch Softball Bat: FPXN170 and the 2017 Louisville Slugger LXT Hyper Fastpitch Softball Bat: FPLX170 are great options to consider. The later will have a slightly larger sweet spot. As for the size to get in either of these bats, based on your daughter's height and weight we would recommend getting a 33 inch 23 ounce model. If she is using a bat that is currently 21 ounces or lighter then we would suggest going, at max, for the 32/22 bat.
Cameron
My sister has never really owned her own game bat before. I got her a drop 9 combat 34 inches when she entered high school as a training bat. She's 5'7 and about 155. Should she go down to a drop 10? or stick with a drop 9 and go with a 33? Most of the bats her teammates have are 21s or 22s which are noticeably way too light. But the combat is a bit too long for her to get around on faster pitchers.
dude1191
Based on what you have told us I would recommend a 33"/24 ounce 2017 Louisville Slugger XENO Plus Fastpitch Softball Bat (FPXN179). I think this would be the way to go for your sister because I think this is going to be a good balance between length while keeping a decent good weight for her.
Carter
My daughter swings a 2016 XENO (32"/22 oz). I was looking to get her the 2017 model. Not sure if she should go up in weight or move to the LXT. She is 5'8" and 138 lbs. What should I do?
mmckee66
Based upon your player's height and weight, I think she would be okay to go to the 33"/23 oz size of this 2017 Louisville Slugger XENO Plus Fastpitch Softball Bat (FPXN170). If she is doing well with the XENO, I do not think she needs to move to the LXT. The LXT does not offer an inherent performance advantage to the XENO. The LXT will just offer the the TRU-3 technology that allows for slightly more barrel flex at contact and limits more of the vibration that can reach a player's hands on a miss-hit (however, if those features attract you guys, the LXT might be something to consider).
Ben
My daughter is 5'5" and 135 lbs. She is 15 and will be playing both high school ball and U16 softball. What size and drop would you recommend?
Julie
Based on your daughters height and weight. I would advise going with the 33" 23 oz size in the 2017 Louisville Slugger XENO Plus Fastpitch Softball Bat: FPXN170.
Sean
My daughter is only 10 and plays U10 fastpitch. She is about 5' and 140 lbs. What size bat do you recommend?
emilio
Based on your daughters height and weight I would recommend a 31"/21 ounce 2017 Louisville Slugger XENO Plus Fastpitch Softball Bat (FPXN170).
Carter
Do you have this bat in a 2015 or 2016 model?
William lee
Unfortunately, we no longer have any of the previous models of the 2017 Louisville Slugger XENO Plus Fastpitch Softball Bat: FPXN170 available.
Jason
My daughter is in 10U (2nd season). She is 4'10 and approx 75 lbs. What size would you recommend?
sgd
Based on your player's height and weight, I would suggest a 31" bat. The 2017 Louisville Slugger XENO Plus Fastpitch Softball Bat: FPXN170 may be a bit heavy for her age in a 31/21 soze, so I would consider taking a look at the 2017 Louisville Slugger XENO Plus Fastpitch Softball Bat: FPXN171 31/20, or the 2017 Louisville Slugger X12 Fastpitch Softball Bat: FPXT172 31/19.
Logan
My daughter is 15 (freshman), 5'3" and 130 pounds. What length and weight would you suggest?
Perterpan
Based on your daughter's height and weight, I would recommend using a 32" Louisville Slugger XENO Plus Fastpitch Softball Bat (FPXN170). This model features a drop 10 length to weight ratio so the 32-inch model will weight 22 ounces.
JP
My daughter is 5'8 and weighs 156 pounds. Which bat is recommended?
TJ
Based on your daughters height and weight we would recommend the 2017 Louisville Slugger XENO Plus Fastpitch Softball Bat (FPXN170) in the 33"/23 ounce size.
Carter
My daughter is 5'9" tall, weighs 160 lbs, and is a power hitter. Which bat is better for her, the Xeno or Hyperlite?
shawn
We always recommend the heaviest bat a player can swing at a good bat speed. The Louisville Slugger Xeno Plus is available in a heavier weight than the Easton Hyperlite, so I would recommend the Xeno over the Hyperlite for a power hitter who can handle the added weight.
Kyle J.
My 11 year old daughter is currently has a 31" (-12). She is 5'9" and 100 lbs (facing 40+ mph pitching). Is the -10 going to noticeably slow down her swing (she is consistently ahead of the pitch)?
thubord
Based upon your player's height and weight, I would recommend looking for a bat that will be a little longer than than the 31" length. I think she would be able to swing at least a 32" length bat. In regard to weight, I might recommend going with a 21 oz weight. I might recommend checking out a 32"/21 oz bat over this 2017 Louisville Slugger XENO Plus Fastpitch Softball Bat (FPXN170) in a 31"/21 oz or 32"/22 oz.
Ben
Why do they break in two, and some on the first use? Granddaughter is looking into this bat, she is 11 yrs old, 5'4", weight 135, can the bat be returned?
Hilda
The 2017 Louisville Slugger XENO Plus Fastpitch Softball Bat: FPXN170 will feature a 12 month warranty through LS if it were to break and can certainly be returned if unused for an exchange or refund. As for what might cause a bat like the 2017 Louisville Slugger XENO Plus Fastpitch Softball Bat: FPXN170 to break in two, this could be the result of where the ball is struck on the bat and/or sometimes we see bats break due to a stronger player swinging too light of a bat.
Cameron
My daughter is tall, but lite (75 Ibs and 5'5"). Thinking XENO and tried a friend's 31"/21 oz size. What size and preference of bat do you recommend for her?
Jack
Based upon your daughter's height and weight, I would recommend the 31" length of bat. As long as she handled the 21 oz weight of her friend's bat well, she should be fine with a 31"/21 oz size of bat. I think this 2017 Louisville Slugger XENO Plus Fastpitch Softball Bat (FPXN170) would be an excellent bat to get for your player.
Ben
I am currently using a teammate's Xeno 33 inch 23 oz. I am 5'3, what bat size would you recommend? I love the feel and it's hitting great, but just curious.
sarah
Based on your height, I would suggest a 32" 2017 Louisville Slugger XENO Plus Fastpitch Softball Bat: FPXN170.
Logan
Looking for a first composite bat. I am 48 inches tall and weigh 80 pounds. What size bat should I use?
Gerty
Based on your size, the 2017 Louisville Slugger XENO Plus Fastpitch Softball Bat: FPXN170 is probably going to be a little big. I would look at a 28" 16 ounce 2018 Louisville Slugger X12 Fastpitch Softball Bat: WTLFPX218A12.
Logan
My daughter is 9 and is 4 ft 7 inches and weighs 105 pounds. I was looking at the Xeno for her first composite bat. Would this be the right one or should I be looking at a different one?
Jones
For the 2017 Louisville Slugger XENO Plus Fastpitch Softball Bat: FPXN170 I would recommend the 30 inch model. On our site, you'll notice our bat coach feature which allows you estimate which size bat you should purchase based on the players height and weight. The XENO is very balanced and is usually preferred by contact hitters.
Trevor
I'm looking at the new Louisville Xeno and the PXT and LXT. My daughter is 5'7" and weighs 120 lbs, and has a fast swing. She uses a 33 in. with a -11 drop, coach wants her to move up to a 34 in. What is your suggestion on that move?
EllaRose
Based on your player's height and weight, she would be between a 32" and a 33." However, her coach is able to see her swing and would be a better resource for that type of question. The LXT is the most balanced of the three, it features a three piece design, and is mostly hot out of the wrapper with little to no break in required. The Xeno would be the next most balanced option, with a more traditional two piece design offering more stiffness for players that are between a pure power hitter and a contact hitter style, and little to no break in required. The PXT is going to be an end loaded option for the more pure power hitters, and it also features the three piece design, but will require some break in.
Logan
My daughter is 11 years old, 4'6" and 75 lbs. She is little and can make contact, but lacks power. Her bat speed needs to increase a little as well. I am looking at the XENO or LXT. I am thinking of 30" (-11). She uses a 30" (-13) now and it is too light. (1) Would she need a bat with flex in it to get more power or a stiffer bat like the XENO? (2) Which bat would help with bat speed and power? (3) Which bat would you recommend for her?
LC
Based upon your player's height and weight, the the 30" length would be the general recommendation. I would be a little hesitant to get something that is 2 ounces heavier than her current 17 oz weight [if bat speed needs to be improved]. (1) I do not think that extra flex would necessarily provide a distinct performance advantage as the preference for more or less flex in a bat is typically up to the individual player. (2) A bat that may help her in regard to speed and power might be a bat like the 2017 Easton Hyperlite Fastpitch Softball Bat (FP17HL12) in the 30"/18 oz size. I think getting a light swinging bat that can be handled effectively is most important. (3) My suggestion would be the Hyperlite in the 30"/18 oz size.
Ben
My daughter has a cheaper Easton bat that is -11 (30) now that she is about to try travel ball we are looking for a higher priced/better quality bat in a 31 but do we stay with -11? or go -10? She is 5 foot and 100 pounds.
sando831
Based on your players height and weight, we suggest the 31" length, so you're right about that. The weight is tough to suggest as that really depends on your players bat speed and strength. If your player can swing the heavier -10, that is the way to go as the more mass you can put behind the ball the further it can travel. Bat speed is the most important thing though, so if you are worried at all about a -10 being too heavy or think she needs the -11 for the best bat speed, the -11 would be the way to go.
Jason
What size would you recommend for my 10 year old daughter? She is 4'4" and is around 86 lbs to 89 lbs.
ardas
Based on your players height and weight, we suggest a 29" bat. However, the 30" model of the 2017 Louisville Slugger XENO Plus Fastpitch Softball Bat: FPXN170 should also work because of its balanced swing weight.
Jason
Do you have any 2017 34in -10?
Christine
Unfortunately, we have sold out of the 34" 2017 Louisville Slugger XENO Plus Fastpitch Softball Bat: FPXN170.
Logan
Does the slightly used bat come with the 1 yr factory warranty?
jb
A used option of the 2017 Louisville Slugger XENO Plus Fastpitch Softball Bat: FPXN170, or any other used bat sold at Justbats, will only feature a 14 day guarantee. A used bat does not feature a 12 month warranty from the manufacturer.
Cameron
My daughter is approximately 5 ft 1 and weighs around 105. She is currently borrowing a Easton 31 in -12. Seems to be working for her. She is a power hitter when she makes contact. I would also say she has a fast swing. Looking for a good bat for her. She is playing on a 10u competitive travel softball league.
KB
Based on your daughter's height and weight, a 32 inch model might be a better fit. The 2017 Louisville Slugger XENO Plus Fastpitch Softball Bat: FPXN170 offers a fully composite design with a balanced swing weight and is a great bat for contact hitters. Based on your daughter's age though the 2017 Louisville Slugger LXT Hyper Fastpitch Softball Bat: FPLX171, and the -11 length to weight ratio, would be a better fit.
Cameron
Emma is 4 ft 9 inches tall and weighs 125. She has a lot of power and this is my first real bat purchase. I'm looking for a -10 or -11. What size do you recommend.
Tom
Based on her height and weight I would suggest the 32in. 22oz. 2017 Louisville Slugger XENO Plus Fastpitch Softball Bat: FPXN170.
Tyler
I am looking for a high school fast pitch bat. Is this a great bat combination for high school players?
Kenneth Holland

Cameron
My daughter is a 14 year old high school freshman. She is 5'8" and weighs about 170 pounds. What would you recommend for length and weight for her?
Joey P
The 2017 Louisville Slugger XENO Plus Fastpitch Softball Bat: FPXN170 would be a great option for your player. At her size, I would go with a 33" 2017 Louisville Slugger XENO Plus Fastpitch Softball Bat: FPXN170, or the 34" 2018 Louisville Slugger XENO -10 Fastpitch Softball Bat: WTLFPXN18A10.
Logan
My daughter is 5'3" and currently uses the 2016 Louisville Xeno 32"/22 oz and I was wondering if there is a substantial difference in the weight of the 33"/23 oz 2017 Xeno. I don't want to get the bat to long or heavy for her to handle.
Nicole
Different players will react differently to a larger/heavier bat, so it's difficult to say. Some players hardly notice a 1" or 1 oz difference, while some it can really affect them. I think how much it would affect a player would depend on their strength. Typically stronger players can adjust better than smaller players.
Kyle J.
My daughter is 15, 5'6" and a mere 105 lbs. What bat would you recommend? She is just a freshman, but made varsity. I would like her to shine. She hates the ping her bat now makes, is this one composite?
monica salazar
The 2017 Louisville Slugger XENO Plus Fastpitch Softball Bat: FPXN170 is a two piece fully composite model. At her height and weight, I would suggest a 32" 2017 Louisville Slugger XENO Plus Fastpitch Softball Bat: FPXN170 if the 22 oz. size works for your player.

My daughter is 5'3" 170 lb power hitter. She is now doing travel and is using a used Xeno 32inch and she has been hitting to the fences but never over it. Looking for any bat that will give her that extra pop to make it there. What bats would you recommend? She has a fast swing and is a 3rd base line hitter? Thank you in advance!

Based off the information you've provided, I would recommend the 2017 Louisville Slugger XENO Plus Fastpitch Softball Bat: FPXN170 in a 33 inch and 23 ounce. I think the extra inch and ounce might improve ball flight. You could also consider the 2018 Louisville Slugger PXT -10 Fastpitch Softball Bat: which features an end-loaded swing weight which is geared towards power hitters.

My daughter is a 5'10" tall, 160 lb NAIA college player and uses a 2017 Xeno 34"/25 oz and is satisfied with it. I was looking at getting her a 2018 model although she says she is satisfied with her current bat. What is the difference between the two models if any and does that size seem appropriate for her size/weight? She has hit two HRs in each of her first two years in college. I would like for her to have a backup bat in case her 2017 model is damaged during her upcoming season.
Todd
Not too much changed with the Xeno from 2017 to 2018, other than some slight end cap improvements. If you can still find the same -9 Xeno she has in a 2017 model it would certainly be a good option, and most likely be discounted due to being an older model.

I have two daughters who play travel ball. One is 4'11,110lb and the other is 5'2,150lb. Is it possible for them to share a bat? They would really like a Xeno bat but I am unsure which one? They are both very powerful hitters.
Lola
Based on your daughters height and weight we would recommend the smaller one using a 30"/20 ounce bat while we would recommend the other daughter you a 31"/21 ounce 2017 Louisville Slugger XENO Plus Fastpitch Softball Bat: FPXN170. However, if they were both comfortable swinging a 31"/21 ounce you could definitely try that out.
Carter
Niece is 12 years old 5' 110 lbs; looking for a new bat for her. She currently uses a Easton stealth 31 in 21 oz. I would like to switch her to a Xeno but which one?
Ofelia
Based on her height and weight we would recommend moving up to a 32"/22 ounce 2017 Louisville Slugger XENO Plus Fastpitch Softball Bat: FPXN170.
Carter
My daughter is 11, 5"2" tall and 111 pounds. What size bat do you recommend?
lindsay
We would probably suggest a 32" length for her height and weight.
Kyle J.
I am tying to find my daughter a new bat. She is 4"11' and 105 pounds. Any idea what size she needs?
Mike
Based on your player's current height and weight, I would recommend the 2017 Louisville Slugger XENO Plus Fastpitch Softball Bat (FPXN170) in a 31"/21 oz size. If you anticipate your player growing this season and would like a bat that can accommodate that, I would suggest getting the 32"/22 oz size instead.
Taylor
Is there a Xeno sold as a 33 inch, 20 or 21 oz? 23 oz is too heavy for me and takes too long for me to get it around.
V
The 2018 Louisville Slugger XENO -11 Fastpitch Softball Bat: WTLFPXN18A11 comes in a 33"/22 ounce and that is going to be the lightest option that we have in the 33" size.
Carter
Is this bat a 33/23? I see the options box, but it does not list 33/23 so I am confused. Please advise.
Lori
The 2017 Louisville Slugger XENO Plus Fastpitch Softball Bat: FPXN170, as of 4/15/18, is only available still in 30/20, 21/21, and 32/22 sizes. All 33 inch models of this bat have been sold and since this model is a closeout we will not get anymore in from LS. If seeking a 33 inch model then we would recommend looking into the 2018 Louisville Slugger XENO -10 Fastpitch Softball Bat: WTLFPXN18A10.
Cameron
What size of bat do you recommend for 5'8 /145 lbs player?
Smitty
Based on your player's height and weight, I would suggest a 33" fastpitch softball bat for your player. Unfortunately, we have sold out of the 2017 Louisville Slugger XENO Plus Fastpitch Softball Bat: FPXN170 in that size, but we do have the 2018 Louisville Slugger XENO -10 Fastpitch Softball Bat: WTLFPXN18A10.
Logan
I bought this bat for my daughter in Feb 2017 and it cracked this month, June 2018. I was wondering if you replace these bats or if there is a replacement offer? Just slightly over a year using the bat and actually had to take a full season off due to injury.
Noel
The 2017 Louisville Slugger XENO Plus Fastpitch Softball Bat: FPXN170 features a 12 month warranty from LS from the date of purchase. If this bat was originally purchased in February of 2017 then the warranty from LS would have expired in February of 2018. To see if LS would still replace the bat you would want to contact them with a copy of your receipt.

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.
