Louisville Slugger Prime wood bats provide authentic power to professionals in Major League Baseball. As the official bat of MLB, each one of these models comes with a pristine look, premium pop on contact, and one of the hardest hitting barrels in baseball. The M110, developed in 1944, is one of Louisville Slugger's oldest turning models still being used today and features the lightest swing weight of Louisville Slugger's PRIME models. This model uses a denser starting billet to create a more consistently hard bat and a slightly thicker handle for a balanced feel, giving you maximum control when you bring the bat through the zone. All MLB PRIME bats - made exclusively with the MLB grade wood, a standard met by only 3% of our wood - now feature EXOARMOR, a revolutionary finish that is twice the hardness of a regular bat. To earn the title as the Official Bat of Major League Baseball, all of these Prime wood bats will also come with the ink dot certification below the barrel to prove the slope-of-grain requirement for MLB approval. The best part? Each one of these wood baseball bats is handcrafted with pride in the United States. Louisville Slugger: Leave Your Mark! This Louisville Slugger MLB Prime Maple M110 Wood Baseball Bat (WTLMLBPMM110BG) features an M110 turn model, an approximate drop 3 length to weight ratio, and the most balanced swing weight score available in the 2019 lineup. Due to the medium barrel, standard handle, and standard knob, this model is primarily recommended for contact hitters who have experience hitting with wood.
