2018 Louisville Slugger Omaha 518 BBCOR Baseball Bat: WTLBBO518B3

Review:

“My son is 13. He says the bat is very well balanced and has great feel and pop right out of the wrapper. I can say must be true... We purchased the bat for 13u travel next year to push him toward -5 from -10 weighted bat, as he prepares for High School in another year. It arrived 1 day before he left for Coopertown, New York 12U dreams park tournament. He decided to hit it once in cage there before the game. He decided to swing it next game. First pitch and first swing with the new bat in hand he hits a 3 run bomb way out... Followed later by 2 more HR's and several solid base hits later in the tournament...Proof enough for me.”
