Maple Bats

Maple

Maple’s dense, hard timber makes it a powerful bat less prone to flaking and one, many players say, that improves their performance in the batter’s box. Slugger’s maple bats are built for power and performance, and many of the MLB’s biggest hitters prefer them.

We rebuilt our bats from the ground up with old-school methods and cutting-edge technology. We start with the best-quality veneer wood on the market and use Amish square-cut craftsmanship, a 360-degree compression process superior to bone rubbing, and an advanced finishing system that guarantees 9H hardness – the highest rating available on the 21-level universal hardness scale.

  • MLB Prime –
    Veneer wood

    Slugger upgraded its superior lumber to the best-quality wood on the market, which we call MLB Prime Veneer.

  • Amish
    Craftsmanship

    We cut our wood square by hand, in the Amish style, and vacuum dry it to make for stronger bats and a more satisfying "crack."

  • 360 Degree
    Compression

    Our exclusive compression process, superior to bone rubbing, guarantees 360 degrees of hardness and no soft spots.

The Hardest Louisville Slugger Bat. Ever.

We proudly introduce the MLB Prime series, the hardest wood bats ever produced by Louisville Slugger. We rebuilt our wood bats from the ground up using veneer maple lumber, which is the highest-quality wood you can use. Amish craftsmanship, 360-degree compression and an Advanced Finish System create a bat with a harder hitting surface, zero soft spots and a more satisfying "crack."

The VMH359 turning model is used by pros like Josh Hamilton of the Anaheim Angels, one of the biggest hitters in the game and a perennial Triple Crown threat. This turning model has an extra-large barrel and a 15/16" handle for a more end-loaded swing.

Lots of bats claim to be "authentic." But make no mistake – the MLB Prime bat is exactly what you see MLB players use on the field all season long.
