Cody Bellinger’s bat speed is outrageous, especially when you consider that he swings a Louisville Slugger C243M, the original big barrel. He has swung the 243 since he arrived in the Big Leagues. We’re not sure what the “M” means but it probably has something to do with Missiles. Update: In 2019, Bellinger’s bat does not carry the “M” at the end, but there’s still plenty of missiles in his bat.
