LOUISVILLE, KY (May 28, 2014) –The Regionals are set as 64 teams begin their quest to reach Omaha and the College World Series. Players on 15 of those teams will swing Louisville Slugger high performance bats as they try to punch their ticket for TD Ameritrade Park.
National Seeds Florida State and Louisiana-Lafayette along with regional hosts Louisville and Rice lead the way in swinging Louisville Slugger’s all new innovative 2015 bat product line, the Prime 915, Select 715 and Omaha 515. These new Louisville Slugger performance bats provide hitters with speed, power, and balance to help them own the plate.
“Our college programs helped us develop our new 2015 bat line through performance testing and giving us feedback. Now they get to reap the benefits of their work by swinging the finished products, the new Prime 915, Select 715. And Omaha 515,” said Louisville Slugger Amateur Baseball Business Manager Kevin Uhrhan. “With these bats every hitter can find the bat that fits his swing.”
The Prime 915 is a three-piece 100 percent performance composite bat designed for a combination of speed, power, and balance. The Select 715 is a three-piece performance hybrid bat with 100 percent composite handle and an AC21 alloy barrel crafted for power. The Omaha 515 is a return to the always popular one-piece performance alloy Omaha series of bats from Louisville Slugger, trusted for power and championship performance. More College World Series championships have been won swinging Louisville Slugger Omaha than any other bat.
Florida State, Louisiana-Lafayette, Louisville and Rice will be joined by North Carolina, Pepperdine, Stanford, Old Dominion, Long Beach State, and Sam Houston State in swinging Louisville Slugger bats exclusively in their quest to reach Omaha. As many as 30 players on five additional tournament teams will swing Louisville Slugger bats as well.
