Maple Bats

Maple Bats

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

MLB Prime

MLB Prime

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.

  • Advanced
    Finish System

    Our filler fills all grains and cavities before 3 layers of topcoat seal are applied to give the MLB Prime the hardest finish of any wood bat on the market.
