Quick note to let you guys know that Louisville Slugger has teamed up with Lizard Skins to offer select cuts pre-wrapped with the bat wrap that is taking over the Big Leagues at no extra charge. Some reading this might think “taking over” is an overstatement for the kind of grips we once thought were only for Little Leaguers. Well, David Ortiz, David Wright, Bryce Harper, and about 160 other MLB players swing with ’em now, and that’s after just two seasons of existence. That doesn’t just happen because they’re fancy looking.
Hosmer’s bright yellow Lizard Skin:
All pre-wrapped grips are 0.5mm.

One question arises that I’m very interested to hear from the ballplayers in the audience: does this make you more likely to buy the bat? Or would you rather buy them separately and do it yourself? Isn’t there something sacred about wrapping your own bat? Look no further than these guys for what I mean.
