LOUISVILLE, KY – (April 9, 2013) - The city of Louisville is full of celebration as they welcome home the 2013 NCAA® National Champions, the University of Louisville men’s basketball team, with a well-deserved victory.

"It’s been such a special year for this team. They’ve had an incredible season. We are very proud of the global representation the Cardinals have brought to Louisville by bringing home the NCAA Championship trophy," said Louisville Slugger’s Director of Specialty & Premium Bat Sales, Packy Page. "We’ve created a unique piece to commemorate the Cardinals triumph. This keepsake item is something every U of L fan will want to own to remember this extraordinary year."

To celebrate this team’s success, Louisville Slugger has created a unique item for University of Louisville fans – a limited-edition, officially licensed bat, sporting the Cardinals’ colors, black and cardinal red.

Each bat is laser-engraved with the U of L logo in addition to the limited-edition numbering and the Official National Champions logo. On the back of each bat are the scores of every Louisville game from the NCAA 2013 Tournament, commemorating their wins, along with the championship banner. Only 2013 bats will be sold.

This limited-edition Louisville Slugger U of L National Championship bat retails for $99.99, plus shipping and handling, and can be purchased at www.sluggergifts.com.
