    Louisville Slugger Baseball Bat – A Wooden Bat That Delivers

    December 16th, 2010

    Product review of the louisville slugger baseball bat.

    The name Louisville Slugger Baseball Bat is synonymous with baseball. Their wood bats have been the backbone of the sport for decades and even as composite and aluminum bats emerged on the market, the professionals still turn to wood bats to help them knock out home runs and drive in runs. The Louisville Slugger Baseball Bat is just the latest bat to emerge from the factory. Fans of using the “lumber” when they step up to the dish know to seek out the correct balance of weight, length, barrel diameter, and feel. Thankfully Louisville offers a wide selection of bat shape and tape to accomplish the customization desire.

    Wood bats like the Louisville Slugger Adult Bat offer better customization to the individual than aluminum and composite bats since they can be shaped and tapered to match anyone’s swing. On the flip side, wood bats the “pop” of their counterparts with smaller sweet spots and less power hitting ability. Unlike aluminum, wood bats are also prone to being broken or splintered. The users all agree that Louisville is the name to trust in wood bats and like the generations of bats before it, this Louisville Slugger Adult Wood Bat lives up to its name. Whether you are a pro or a purist, a wood bat from Louisville Slugger is the way to go for an authentic feel at the plate.

    Serious ballplayers need an equipment bag that can handle their gear, along with the wear and tear of a long season. Once the dog days of summer come around, you need a bag that can hold its weight. The top-selling Easton Tote Bag is built to handle whatever any baseball or softball player can throw at it. The bag measures 36” x 7” x 9” and contains a separate, zippered pocket for holding two softball or baseball bats. The interior is large enough to handle helmets, gloves, and uniforms, and inside the bag there is a security pocket to keep small items safe. The bag bag also has a metal fence clip, so you can use it as a bat holder during a game.

    Reviews from those who have purchased the Easton Tote Bag have found that this bag is useful for both adult and youth athletes, and that its straps make it easy to carry on long walks to the diamond. Some customers wished the bag could hold a few more softballs, but overall the reviews were positive. Keep in mind if the baseball bag is filled to maximum capacity, that it can be too heavy for youth under 10 to carry all by themselves. So whether you are playing in a Sunday softball league or need an equipment bag for your little leaguer, consider the durable Easton Tote Bag.
