Worth Powercell Carl Rose 13.5" XL USSSA Slow Pitch Softball Bat: WCARLU
Purchase a USSSA rated slow pitch bat that will commemorate the life of a true slow pitch super star as well. Get this Worth Powercell Carl Rose model of bat!
Worth has crafted this bat to commemorate the life and career of slow pitch softball legend, Carl Rose. Carl was declared the slow pitch player of the decade for the 1990s. The bat he trusted when he was playing was a Worth Powercell model and that is how this bat gets its name!
It has been crafted with the X434 Composite that will help lengthen the sweetspot so that it covers a huge area of the bat's barrel. You'll be able to dig in at the dish knowing that you can hit a softball nearly anywhere on the barrel and achieve good results.
The bat is going to feature a 1/2 oz end load (Worth's XL Load) that should suit power hitters really well. If a batter can swing that extra weight on the barrel efficiently, then they should be able to put some serious distance into their hits. As well, some contact hitters looking to transition to more of a power hitter might enjoy swinging this bat. The slight end load will be more manageable to handle when compared to the full-ounce load seen on some other slow pitch bats. With that half-ounce load, a batter can build up his strength gradually and hopefully be launching softballs deep into the outfield in little time.
Worth products are legendary on the softball scene. Because of that, they know that they have a duty to take care of their customers that put so much trust in Worth bats. Worth will extend a twelve (12) month manufacturer’s warranty on this bat. If you get the bat from JustBats and notice an issue with it before a year has passed from the purchase date, please let one of our Bat Experts know. They will get you all the directions and materials needed to begin the warranty replacement process with Worth.
As well, it is very important to note that Worth will not accept a warranty replacement return if it does not include the Serial Sticker that comes on the bat originally. If you purchase this bat, please save the Serial Sticker in the case that you experience a warranty issue.

About the Brand
Worth, Inc. can trace its beginning back to the year 1912, when George Sharp Lannom, Jr. purchased a tannery in Tullahoma, Tennessee and established the Lannom Manufacturing Company. Initially, the firm tanned leather for harnesses and horse collars they manufactured. However, as the automobile grew in popularity, the demand for the company's harnesses and collars declined, so Lannom shifted its manufacturing resources toward production of leather covered baseballs and softballs under the "Worth" brand, and men's leather dress gloves under the "Craig" brand.
Charles (Chuck) E. Parish joined Lannom in 1930 as a salesman and married G.S. Lannom, Jr.'s daughter, Martha Lannom several years later. Following Mr. Lannom's death, Parish acquired controlling interest in the company, which led to a division of company assets between himself and Lannom's son G.S. Lannom III. Lannom maintained the glove works while Parish, "The Baron of Baseballs," built the Lannom baseball business into the world's largest manufacturer of baseballs.
Upon graduation from Vanderbilt University in 1959, Chuck Parish's son, John, joined the Lannom organization. He persuaded his father to expand the company's Caribbean operations and enter the baseball bat business in 1970. In 1975, following the death of his father, John Parish took over the reigns of the company. Under his leadership, the company diversified and expanded its production line and developed the personnel, technical know-how, and physical facilities to become one of the largest and most financially sound manufacturers in the entire sporting goods industry.
The WorthSports Company was formally organized in 1975 as the sales and marketing arm for all sporting goods products and divisions of Lannom. In addition to the normal marketing functions, Worth also emphasizes and provides new product research and development. In fact, the emphasis placed on this development is largely responsible for Worth's leadership role in the sporting goods industry.
When Worth entered the bat business all bats were made from Northern White Ash. Worth then established wood mills in Pennsylvania and New York to provide the strong but relatively lightweight ash wood stock. Then directions were shifted to aluminum and other composites and in 1968 Lannom Manufacturing produced its first aluminum bat. The company's Jess Heald was primarily responsible for its development. The sale of aluminum bats to amateur baseball and softball players mushroomed in the 70's, helping Lannom achieve record results. In 1994, because of market demands, more emphasis was placed on the aluminum division and an expansion was completed in Tullahoma.
One of the first and most significant results of the R&D program was the development of the Polyurethane (Poly-X™) core for baseballs and softballs. This one innovation revolutionized the entire softball world; up to this time, the traditional softball core was constructed of cork and latex. Worth, through the use of "petrochemical" formulation, created a softball that was more consistent in performance and demonstrated extended durability, thereby setting the stage for the establishment of formal specifications and standards for the industry. More recently, the expanded research and development team has made another revolutionary addition to the aluminum bats called the SuperCell EST (Exterior Shell Technology) Bat.
One product Worth is very proud of is its RIF (Reduced Injury Factor) baseballs and softballs. Introduced in baseballs in the late '80's, the RIF design features a polyurethane center that makes the ball softer than the traditional yarn wound ball, while keeping the weight, size and liveliness. The balls are used mainly in youth leagues, where safety is of major concern. The technology is now being used in Worth softballs as well. New technology is constantly being developed to revolutionize the softball industry as we know it today.
In 2007, Worth was acquired by Jarden Corporation and is now a division of Rawlings and Jarden Team Sports.
