Wood Baseball Bats

MLB Prime

We hit the drawing board and looked at processes both old and new to build the next generation of wood bats. Cut from the best-quality wood on the market and forged to have no soft spots, the MLB Prime is the exact same bat the pros use. It's also the hardest Louisville Slugger bat ever.

MLB Prime Maple

For Power Players

Baseball's biggest hitters choose maple for its harder hitting surface and greater durability. All bats are Amish processed, compressed and cupped, and carry an ink dot and knob date.

MLB Prime Ash

Strong Timber, Light Weight

A lighter, more flexible timber than maple bats, ash bats give a wider range of large barrel models and a larger, more forgiving sweet spot that results in less breakage. Ash is the timber of choice for many MLB sluggers.
