This limited-edition C243, Louisville Slugger’s original large barrel turning model, pays homage to the armed forces with a sleek design and all the impressive features of the 2020 MLB Prime bats. Inspired by the powerful visual representation of the U.S. military, this bat features a matte army green and black fade design with a camouflage center brand and a never-before-seen military-inspired font style on the end brand.
The C243 is the original large barrel bat. As aluminum bats became a part of the game, the demand for large-barreled, thin-handled bats led to the popularity of the C243. Every large barrel turning model since has been a slight modification from this model. It is a ‘4’ (Slightly End Loaded) on the Swing Weight Scale.
Birch is considered a relatively new species in the game, but is one of the fastest-growing among professional players. It features a surface hardness close to that of Maple bats, but an increased flexibility similar to that of an Ash bat.
