Preferred by nearly three-in-four Major League players, maple bats are known for their durable surface strength and stiffer feel. This M9 C271 features a natural gloss finish with black branding. The Louisville Slugger Legacy Wood Bat Series is ideal for high school, college, adult senior league and Minor League players alike. The C271 is the base model used to create all medium-barrel turning models and uses Louisville Slugger's densest starting billet, giving this model consistent hardness. A standard handle, medium barrel and max knob taper create a versatile bat conducive to power hitters and contact hitters alike.
