Joey Votto’s Louisville Slugger M356 Ash Bat

Joey Votto swings a Slugger bat, M356 cut in Ash. Ash is a flexible wood species known for its flex and forgiveness on contact off the end of the bat.  It should stand to reason then that Votto’s extreme choke-up strategy allows him to cover the inside of the plate with the peace of mind that, with his superhuman hand-eye coordination, he can still drive a ball the other way.  This strategy is evident when you see Votto’s spray charts, which are as evenly distributed as anyone in baseball.

Long story short, Votto has reached a mastery level of hitting that few players ever do.  His career batting average is among the all-time greats, and his M356, with its extra-large barrel, no cap, and thin handle, is available at the link.  (Votto’s Measurements: 34/32)
