Louisville Slugger introduced the PRIME 915, SELECT 715 and OMAHA 515 during the NCAA tournament with players on 16 of the 64 teams taking these bats to the plate. Players on three of the eight teams in the College World Series® swung the black, red and white family of Louisville Slugger performance bats – bats which also put on a power display during the Major League Baseball® Junior Home Run Derby. Feedback from college hitters, elite high school players and product reviewers is the same. The 2015 Louisville Slugger performance bats provide hitters with the speed, power and balance to #owntheplate.

“It takes determination, poise, grit and tenacity to own the plate,” said Louisville Slugger VP of Marketing Kyle Schlegel. “It requires fearlessness achieved through the grind of countless hours in the cage. It takes self-reliance, dedication and humility to meticulously study opposing pitchers. And it takes a great bat. Our PRIME 915, SELECT 715 and OMAHA 515 bats give hitters the unshakeable confidence they need every time they step to the plate.”
