2019 Best BBCOR Baseball Bat

Louisville is generally known for offering great pricing for their bats.

The price tag comes with the popularity as the Prime series has been one of the most popular on the market over the last few years.

Louisville Slugger is the premier company in the market for a three-piece composite bat.

There aren’t many three-piece bats out there, so let’s start by understanding what this means.

There is a special connection called an “elastomeric connection” between the handle and the barrel.

This connection is designed to minimize vibration even more than a two-piece bat typically does.

As a result, players can focus on accelerating the bat through the zone without fear of significant pain or stinging in the hands.

This History

Louisville comes from humble beginnings. A local prospect (Pete Browning) broke his favorite bat during a major league game and a fan offered to make a new one by hand.

Browning, known as “The Louisville Slugger” used the bat and broke out of a slump with 3 hits the next day.

Because all players are superstitious, he swore by his new Slugger.

Since then, the Louisville company has sold over 100,000,000 bats. So, you know that you’re getting a quality product.

Larger Barrel

Louisville decided to focus on increasing hitting potential with the 2019 lineup.

With the increased the size of the barrel which should help with contact.

Some players have said the larger barrel is creating more backspin which lifts the ball more.

If you’re a fan of the launch-angle revolution that’s happening in the majors, you should like that idea.

You’ll find a lot of Louisville Slugger bat reviews mention a large barrel.

It seems to be something that Louisville is trying to embrace as a company.

The RTX Cap

The RTX end cap is designed to extend the barrel length and, in turn, make the sweet spot larger.

The sweet spot helps the ball jump off the bat. This also contributes to making the bat one of the most balanced in the Louisville series this year.

When you combine the size of the sweet spot with the increase in bat speed, you really create the chance for significant power.

TRU3 and The Goal of Zero Vibration

Louisville continues to use the TRU3 technology that connects the handle to the barrel.

The TRU3 minimizes vibration and makes the bat significantly smoother in your hand.

Multiple players have told me that the vibration and sting are minimal, even on bad hits.

This vibration technology is something that you’ll find mentioned in most Louisville Slugger reviews.

Lizard Skin

This is something I’ve heard several players comment on. Players love the feel of the grip because it has a softness to it, but the tackiness also helps the batter maintain a good grip.

Some players I’ve spoken with have said that they’re comfortable using this bat without gloves.
