2020 MLB PRIME MAPLE C271 PATRIOT BASEBALL BAT
Let freedom swing with the Patriot. This version of the C271, Louisville Slugger's most popular turning model at the Major League level, features a deep flame to royal finish with red, white and blue branding throughout -- including an American flag-inspired center brand decal. A standard handle, standard barrel and max knob taper, along with a balanced swing weight, allow this model to deliver for both contact and power hitters alike.
The 2020 MLB Prime lineup is 135 years in the making. Our team has applied its extensive wood bat knowledge to develop a product that, from knob to cup, is unmatched. Each of the 2020 models feature an easy-to-read knob medallion embedded in the knob that indicates the MLB Prime grade of wood, the species and the length, while the bat name and production date is engraved in the surrounding area. These bats also now feature a Craftsman-Style Cup, created specifically to curb breakage and maintain hardness on contact. To give these bats an unparalleled look and feel, the 2020 MLB Prime bats are all coated with our new EXOPRO finish, which creates a beautiful mirror-like appearance and unmatched level of hardness. Seamless Decals on the center, end and back brands blend into the bat almost as intricately as the grain itself. All in all, the 2020 MLB Prime bats are the finest Louisville Slugger bats created in over a century of craftsmanship.

The C271 is the most popular Louisville Slugger turning model at the Major League level and is the base model used to create all medium barrel turning models. The C271 uses our densest starting billet, giving this model consistent hardness.

This model is made with Maple, which is the species 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. It has been stamped with an Ink Dot to indicate the highest quality wood bat, meeting slope-of-grain standards for play in Major League Baseball.
