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. Regardless of preference in material, elite players love the feel of a wood bat in their hands as they work toward their dream of playing at the MLB level.
Maple bat features the ultimate surface hardness and provides an unrivaled sound and feel. Our Louisville Slugger MLB Prime Maple C271 Loyalist is one of our most popular Maple bats, featuring a clean natural finish and black branding. Ash bats feature a unique grain structure that allows increased flexibility. That flexibility makes these bats more forgiving, which you’ll see in the Select Cut Ash C271, a versatile stick that stands out for its balance and classic look of natural wood with black branding. The moderate flexibility of birch makes the Select Cut Birch C271 a perfect bat for players who enjoy consistent hardness in a refined Hornsby finish.
