Wood Baseball Bats

There’s nothing like the sound of the crack that fills the air when your wood bat makes contact. That sound is what ballplayers spend their lives training for. These days, most players prefer maple bats – but ash and birch remain pillars of the wood bat world. Each type of wooden baseball bat has unique characteristics and it’s up to hitters to decide which one best suits their approach at the plate. Louisville Slugger offers an extensive lineup of wood bats for all ages.
