Louisville Slugger Big Barrel Bats
Louisville Slugger Big Barrel Bats are a source of huge power and reliability. A good baseball bat needs the right material, weight and balance. Louisville brings all of that to the table with their Big Barrel models. The large barrel adds more energy into the swing thus transferring that into the ball upon contact. When you release more energy, it translates to a faster exit velocity of the ball. In addition, players and coaches will see how fast the ball leaves the bat and know that there’s a big hitter at the plate.
Louisville Slugger Big Barrel Bats features
There are a few parts to Louisville Slugger big barrel bats that make them an elite piece of equipment. The grip, the handle and the end cap. Making sure each is in balance with the others to allow the most energy output from all points on the bat. Most importantly a bat should be comfortable in your hands. Louisville loves to use the Lizard Skin Bat tape to line the handle of the bat. When you have a comfortable grip that doesn’t slip, the bat feels like more of an extension of your arms. Becoming that comfortable with the bat allows players to swing faster and more accurately.
Alloy Big Barrel Bats
Next, some of the bats are made from a metal alloy. Louisville’s alloy bats are more dense and provide more power behind the swing. The big barrel design allows for more material and a wider area to strike the ball. The more material allows for a more powerful swing. Players know how much it hurts when an inside a pitch jams you up. In fact, the ball hits the bat closer to the grip and the vibrations cause a stinging in your hand, which is not very fun. Louisville Slugger big barrel bats use a TRU3 design to minimize that vibration and keep your hands from hurting.
While, the End cap may not seem like a crucial element to baseball bats, its design is very effective in power hitting. The Cap size actually determines the size of the barrel which relates to a larger sweet spot. Because the cap is not meant for hitting, it can be made out of a light material. Allowing for easy adjustment of weight and balance.
Furthermore, with multiple styles and materials to choose from, Louisville Slugger big barrel bats offer the right bat for your hitting performance!
