CODY'S BAT SPECS

Cody Bellinger's CB35 Signature Series bat is inspired by a modified C243 model - one of Louisville Slugger's most well-known and popular turns. It's a large-barrel bat that has a perfect end-loaded feel. His gamer is designed with all-natural look and black Seamless Decals.

It is a '4' (Slightly End Loaded) on the Swing Weight Scale.

MLB MAPLE

Preferred by more than 70 percent of Major League players, Maple bats are known for their surface hardness, unmatched sound and solid feel upon contact. The closed grain structure of the Maple wood lends itself to a more durable surface strength and stiffer feel. 

Maple in MLB: Cody Bellinger, Christian Yelich, Didi Gregorius, Ronald Acuna, Eloy Jimenez, Curtis Granderson, Ian Happ, Ryan Zimmerman, Brian Dozier, Zack Cozart, Brandon Belt, Charlie Culberson, Adam Frazier, Aaron Hicks, Jose Peraza, Ryan McMahon

KNOB MEDALLION

Easy-to-read medallions have been embedded in the knob, clearly show the identifying characteristics of your bat and replacing outdated etching that has been previously used. The medallion indicates the MLB Prime grade of wood, the species and the length, while the bat name is engraved in the surrounding area.

On Signature Series models, the engraving around the medallion features the name of the MLB player for whom the game model is made. 

SEAMLESS DECALS

Louisville Slugger’s exclusive Seamless Decals are applied directly under the top coat, giving MLB Prime bats a pristine look. All MLB Prime models feature branding that blends into the bat almost as intricately as the grain of the wood itself – without added stress from pressure and heat. Thanks to this innovative technology, MLB Prime bats continue to shine after countless trips to the plate.

END BRAND

A condensed appearance adds the finishing touch to the 2021 MLB Prime lineup end brand, giving these bats an even cleaner, high-end look.

The end brand for Signature Series bats features the signature of the player for whom the game model bat was made.

CRAFTSMAN STYLE CUP

Our completely re-engineered Craftsman-Style Cup features a thicker width edge along the end of the barrel, lending added strength and durability to the end of the bat to help reduce chipping and cracking.

EXOPRO FINISH

The 2021 MLB Prime lineup features our revolutionary EXOPRO finish that’s twice as hard as the previous EXOARMOR. This latest innovation in wood bat technology gives you a finish you can feel in an incredibly durable top coat that not only drastically increases surface hardness, but gives you a mirror-like finish in high-gloss models, elevating the color and grain definition of the bat. EXOPRO delivers what you’ve always wanted – a wood bat that feels as good as it looks. 

MLB INK DOT

Louisville Slugger ink-dotted bats are the highest quality wood bats in the game. Every maple and birch PRIME bat that meet slope-of-grain carries the Ink Dot and are approved for play in Major League Baseball.
