Louisville Slugger M9 D195 Maple Wood Bat
The Louisville Slugger M9 maple wood bat is well known on baseball diamonds everywhere. Louisville Slugger uses professional grade, hand-picked maple to make this bat. Maple is a very dense timber with a greater surface hardness than ash, leading many players to believe it gives them a sizable bump in performance. Maple wood is a very close-grained timber, and this unique grain structure prevents the barrel from flaking. The quality of timber used by Louisville Slugger on these bats is second to none, making for a very high quality product. The M9 maple is also kiln dried for optimum moisture content.
