Swing with a purpose with this limited-edition C271 MLB Prime bat, created specifically for the partnership between Louisville Slugger and Autism Speaks. The two organizations teamed up to create a bat that exists to spread the message of inclusion, acceptance and understanding for people on the autism spectrum. This C271 model features Autism Speaks' signature blue color in the branding and a Love the Moment back brand developed specifically for this partnership.
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.
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medallions have been embedded in the knob, clearly show the identifying characteristics of your bat and replacing outdated etching that has been previously used.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 “LTM” is engraved in the surrounding area to denote the special partnership.
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. The Love the Moment bat’s center brand is designed with the unique shade of blue created for this partnership.
A condensed appearance adds the finishing touch to the 2021 MLB Prime lineup end brand, giving these bats an even cleaner, high-end look.
Our completely re-engineered Craftsman-Style Cup features a thicker width edge along the end of the barrel, lending added strength and durability to the end of the bat to help reduce chipping and cracking.
The Louisville Slugger x Autism Speaks MLB Prime bats feature an exclusive custom-made Love the Moment back brand developed specifically for the partnership.
