Louisville Hard Maple Black Wood Baseball Bat Harder Hitting Surface Thanks to maple's closegrained timber, the bat features a harder hitting surface than ash bats, bringing more power and durability to every swing. No other bat combines heritage, expertise, and superior lumber and craftsmanship like Louisville Slugger. Louisville Slugger's HM125 line of maple wood bats is randomly selected from the following turning models: C271, P72, C243, R161, T141 and K55. These bats were pulled from their original production line for some minor flaw that will not affect the bat's performance. These small production errors mean deep savings on superior bats ideal for practice, batting cages or even games. Bat Specifications Wood: Maple Finish: Black Available Sizes: 31 .
