#1 BAT IN MLB® IS #1 BAT IN POSTSEASON PLAY
LOUISVILLE, KY – (October 31, 2012) Louisville Slugger®, Major League Baseball’s number one bat in the regular season, was also baseball’s number one bat in the 2012 Postseason. More hitters on MLB® playoff teams chose bats from professional baseball’s most experienced and leading bat maker than from any other bat company.
In fact, Louisville Slugger went to the plate with more hitters on the eight playoff teams than all other bat companies combined. And two-thirds of the hitters on the World Series Champion San Francisco Giants™ trusted Louisville Slugger ash and maple.
“Louisville Slugger selects the highest grade timber and uses the latest technology to create baseball’s premier bats,” said the company’s director of professional baseball, Chuck Schupp. “Veneer maple, Amish ash, vacuum dried wood, 360-degree compression, all combine to create the hardest finishes in the game.”
Louisville Slugger, founded in 1884, has participated in more Postseasons than all other bat makers combined. The company has made bats for every World Series played, starting with the first one in 1903.
“Through the decades and today in 2012, MLB players have complete confidence in Louisville Slugger,” Schupp said. “First and foremost, we provide great customer service. We take care of players who swing Louisville Slugger bats. We ensure they have the very best timber and service. We work with each player to build their bats to their exact specs.”
The company is already gearing up for the start of the next MLB season with some big changes. Spring training 2013 will be yet another milestone for Slugger. Be watching to see what’s new from the #1 Bat in MLB on Opening Day!
