Louisville Slugger dates back to the late 1880s, when J.F. Hillerich opened a woodworking shop in Louisville, Kentucky. After witnessing professional baseball player Pete “The Gladiator” Browning break his bat, Hillerich’s seventeen-year-old son invited the pro player to the shop — where they fashioned a unique bat with groundbreaking technology. With his newly enhanced game, Browning shared his love of the custom bat with his teammates, which eventually changed the little woodworking shop forever: today, the Louisville Slugger is an acclaimed one-stop-shop for all baseball gear.
The baseball bat is the foundation of the Louisville Slugger Company, which is best known for designing top-of-the-line baseball bat, wood bats and softball bats. The patented technology delivers larger sweet spots, lighter swing weight and better feel with every swing.
