Louisville Slugger Custom Bat Giveaway



High-performance custom bats used to be something that only a major leaguer could hope to obtain. Now thanks to 
Louisville Slugger, you can get your own customized, game-ready bat. From major league-quality wood to custom paint jobs, it's all just a few clicks away. To demonstrate how the process worked, three members of Baseball America's staff had the opportunity to customize their own Louisville Slugger MLB Prime bats—and now you can judge them and win your own custom bat! For more than 130 years, major leaguers have turned to Louisville Slugger for the best in craftsmanship and technology, with bats tailored to players' specifications. Now the Louisville Slugger Custom Bats site gives you the same level of control. In addition to the MLB Prime customization, the site also has options for performance composite/aluminum bats, or the perfect gift for a friend or loved one. So check out our efforts, vote for your favorite, and you'll be entered for a chance to win your own custom Louisville Slugger bat (a $169.95 value). Hurry! The contest ends at midnight on Friday, Aug. 5.
