Description

The design that has shocked baseball and softball with its cutting edge technology is back and better than ever! The Z-2000 employs S1iD Technology that allows the barrel to flex to its maximum allowable performance level from SWING 1. Two inner discs are positioned inside the barrel at the sweet spot to stop the barrel from from flexing past the legal limit. For players, this means they really do get MAXIMUM performance allowable and a larger performing sweet spot. Louisville Slugger uses their high quality Pure 360 Composite on the Z-2000. This new thinner high-strength and lightweight graphite fiber blend allows for reduced wall thickness, creating better performance while maintaining durability. The thinner fibers have allowed Louisville Slugger to use more layers in the barrel for added strength, but with an overall wall thickness that is thinner. The iST barrel to handle connection gives players maximum performance, even on inside hits. With a balanced swing weight, the Z-2000 is built for performance. For added comfort, the Z-2000 features 7/8" standard handle with a synthetic grip. Louisville Slugger: Be the Best. Or Swing the Rest. The Z-2000 features the new ASA stamp and is approved for play in ASA, and ISF. It is backed by a Full Twelve (12) Month Manufacturer's Warranty. Free Shipping!

Hot out the wrapper! Louie player

Pros: Great pop out of the wrapper. In my opinion it has more pop than 2012's Z1000. With little effort I can place this ball deep in the OF. I can only imagine what will happen with about 50 more cuts into it. The sweet spot is very large and the new grip is a nice update for a softer feel.

Cons: None thus far.

Z-2000 is Junk and a waste of money Aaron Thompson player

Pros: The bat has a great feel and has no vibration on contact with the ball

I'm picky but this bat is virtually flawless Reggie Ladoux player

Pros: I'm a lead off contact hitter who places the ball where I want(99% of the time) this bat is perfect for that. You can feel the flex of the bat when you make contact and the ball gets released into the air. My brother is a big guy power hitter and he pounds the ball with it so its not just a single's weapon. No break in time. No other bat sounds like it. Quality bat. Grew up an Easton only guy, love miken composites, but this slugger is where its at.

Cons: I dont have the end loaded ASA yet. Everyone wants to use it.

Kara
How does this bat compare to the Worth 454 Balanced?
Nick
The 2014 Louisville Slugger Z-2000 Balanced ASA: SBZ214-AB Slow Pitch and 2013 Worth 454 Balanced USSSA: SB4BU Slow Pitch are very comparable performance-wise. The Worth 454 will have a slightly larger sweet spot due to the 454 Technology in the one-piece composite design. The Z-2000 will feature a two-piece design, which will give you a little more flex in the handle to help bring the bat through the zone faster.
Katie
What's the difference to the 2013 version? Is it just re-painting or are there new feature/technology in the 2014 version?
Jin
There is not new features on the 2014 Louisville Slugger Z-2000 Balanced ASA compared to the 2013 model. It is only ASA approved.

Tori
I play in a ASA semi-fast league, and i was wondering which Z-2000 would be best? Balanced or end loaded? Also, what bat out there do you think is the best for an ASA semi-fast league?
Whip
If you play in a league that has faster pitching, we recommend a balanced bat such as the 2014 Louisville Slugger Z-2000 Balanced ASA: SBZ214-AB Slow Pitch. The Z-2000 uses top of the line composite materials for outstanding performance and durability.
Kara
Can this bat be used in USSSA?
Rogie
This 2014 Louisville Slugger Z-2000 Balanced ASA: (SBZ214-AB) Slow Pitch bat does not carry a USSSA stamp and is not approved for play in leagues that follow USSSA rules. If you were interested in the Z-2000 for USSSA, the (SBZ214-UB) is approved for that organization. None of the 2014 Z-2000 models will carry both an ASA and USSSA performance certification mark.
Mac
I've always used Easton bats since I've been playing. Used the 2013 Z-2000 in a homerun derby and it felt great. Stuck between this years Z-2000 or the Easton Raw Power. Any suggestions to help me decide?
DoubleO
The 2014 Louisville Slugger Z-2000 Balanced ASA (SBZ214-AB) and the Easton Raw Power Series are both very high performing bats. The both use top of the line composite materials for outstanding performance and durability. You can't go wrong with either bat.
Kara
Is this a single wall bat?
DoubleD
No, the 2014 Louisville Slugger Z-2000 Balanced ASA (SBZ214-AB) Slow Pitch features technology that would make it considered a multi-wall design.
Patrick
I play in a couple different leagues and I own the ASA and NSA versions of the 2014 Z-2000. The ASA version has a different sound to it. Is that normal? How would I know if its normal or if something is wrong with it?
Fumunda
The 2014 Louisville Slugger Z-2000 Balanced ASA (SBZ214-AB) is not defective, and it would be a normal sound. Since they are approved for different governing bodies, the testing would be slightly different and could result in a different sound.
Kara
Is the Z-2000 designed for the .52 core balls?
Proudman
The 2014 Louisville Slugger Z-2000 Balanced ASA (SBZ214-AB) is designed for the .52 core balls.
Kara
Will it hurt the Z-2000 balanced to take it to a batting cage to break it in?
Guy
As long as the batting cage is using approved .52 core ASA softballs and delivering them in a regular slow pitch style, it should not be an issue to break it in in the batting cage.
Patrick
Why is this bat now discontinued?
Heartland
Louisville Slugger did not provide us with the reason they discontinued the 2014 Louisville Slugger Z-2000 Balanced ASA (SBZ214-AB). I would recommend giving them a call directly at 800-282-2287.

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.
