  • You make the rules with the Rambler. This version of the C271, Louisville Slugger's most popular turning model at the Major League level, features a natural and distressed hickory finish with tan branding throughout. A standard handle, standard barrel and max knob taper, along with a balanced swing weight, allow this model to deliver for both contact and power hitters alike. 

    The 2020 MLB Prime lineup is 135 years in the making. Our team has applied its extensive wood bat knowledge to develop a product that, from knob to cup, is unmatched. Each of the 2020 models feature an easy-to-read knob medallion embedded in the knob that indicates the MLB Prime grade of wood, the species and the length, while the bat name and production date is engraved in the surrounding area. These bats also now feature a Craftsman-Style Cup, created specifically to curb breakage and maintain hardness on contact. To give these bats an unparalleled look and feel, the 2020 MLB Prime bats are all coated with our new EXOPRO finish, which creates a beautiful mirror-like appearance and unmatched level of hardness. Seamless Decals on the center, end and back brands blend into the bat almost as intricately as the grain itself. All in all, the 2020 MLB Prime bats are the finest Louisville Slugger bats created in over a century of craftsmanship. 

    This is the 2020 MLB Prime lineup. This is Louisville Slugger.

C271 Turning Model

Bat Specs

The C271 is the most popular Louisville Slugger turning model at the Major League level and is the base model used to create all medium barrel turning models. The C271 uses our densest starting billet, giving this model consistent hardness. A standard handle, medium barrel and max knob taper create a versatile bat conducive to power hitters and contact hitters alike. It is a '1' (Most Balanced) on the Swing Weight Scale.

Birch is considered a relatively new species in the game, but is one of the fastest-growing among professional players. It features a surface hardness close to that of Maple bats, but an increased flexibility similar to that of an Ash bat.

Knob Medallion

Knob Medallion

New to the 2020 line, easy-to-read medallions have been embedded in the knob, clearly show the identifying characteristics of your bat and replacing outdated etching that has been previously used. The medallion indicates the MLB Prime grade of wood, the species and the length, while the bat name is engraved in the surrounding area.

Center Brand

Louisville Slugger’s exclusive Seamless Decals are applied directly under the top coat, giving MLB Prime bats a pristine look. All MLB Prime models feature branding that blends into the bat almost as intricately as the grain of the wood itself – without added stress from pressure and heat. Thanks to this innovative technology, MLB Prime bats continue to shine after countless trips to the plate.

End Brand

This latest innovation in wood bat technology gives you a finish you can feel in an incredibly durable top coat that not only drastically increases surface hardness, but gives you a mirror-like finish in high-gloss models, elevating the color and grain definition of the bat. EXOPRO delivers what you’ve always wanted – a wood bat that feels as good as it looks.
