Christian Yelich’s Louisville Slugger S318 Maple Bat

Average rating:
Tap star to rate:Rate this gear:

The bat that’s been causing all the damage is his Louisville Slugger Maple S318 Bat. It’s a 34 inch, 31 ounce end-loaded model. Yelich’s S318 bat is cupped on the end which creates a more balanced feel, while also allowing for a more dense piece of wood.  How?  At the beginning of the bat production process, Louisville Slugger selects a billet (piece of wood) that will fulfill Yelich’s requirement of a 31 ounce weight.  Since they know they’ll be cupping the bat, it allows them to select a more dense billet than they would if he did not request a cupped end.  A healthy dose of pine tar below the label and on the handle provide a sure grip. You can purchase the model as a custom bat at the link.
