Louisville Slugger 2014 MLB Prime Maple Wood Baseball Bats

MLB Prime Maple
Baseball's biggest hitters choose maple for its harder hitting surface and greater durability. Prime maple is a very dense timber with a greater surface hardness than ash. Many players believe this hardness gives them better performance. Maple is a closed-grain timber, making it less prone to flake like ash and allowing for more durability. Maple is generally considered as more popular right now. It has become prominent over the last decade, driven by MLB players using maple. All bats are Amish processed, compressed and cupped, and carry an ink dot and knob date.
