A bat built to run this game. Just like you. Introducing the all-new Meta Fastpitch Bat from Louisville Slugger. It features a revolutionary patent-pending cantilevered gapped barrel design that maximizes performance and expands the sweet spot of the bat. The low compression barrel design and unmatched feel went through years of playtesting with elite talent. The end result? A cutting-edge high performer that’s ready to go as soon as you unwrap it.
- BARREL: MASH Composite works perfectly with the innovative gapped wall design to immediately and continually maximize performance. Unlike other gapped wall bats, this cantilevered inner barrel is not connected at the end cap, allowing it to translate on impact. The result is incredible performance along the entire barrel and a unique sound that cannot be ignored
- CONSTRUCTION: A two-piece design featuring Slugger's VTX Connection System, which allows for more independent movement between the barrel and handles. This provides a best-in-class feel with less vibration on every swing – something players have come to expect in every Louisville Slugger bat
- SWING WEIGHT: The Meta showcases the perfect combination of an easy-swinging profile with just a touch of added weight toward the end of the barrel, helping players of all types and experience levels deliver maximum pop
- END CAP: The all-new F2X Performance End Cap maximizes the barrel profile, bat control, and swing speed. Its completely transparent design is a first in fastpitch and the perfect finishing touch on a bat built for elite talent
- GRIP: Designed to give players added tack and cushion, Slugger's Premium Pro Comfort Grip improves feel and bat control through the zone
- Diameter: 2-1/4 Inches

QUESTION: Should I order this bat with Free Shipping or Upgraded Shipping?
ANSWER: It just depends on how quickly you need it. This ROLLED & READY Bat is ready to ship and will generally ship same day if ordered before 1PM EST. Our free shipping method is just the cheapest method available to your address, which is usually a 2-6 day transit time but is NOT guaranteed. The upgrade options specify their transit times. UPS 2 Day Air and/or UPS Next Day Air are popular options for customers needing a bat quickly.
QUESTION: Why is this bat priced higher than retail?
ANSWER: After being disrupted by the COVID-19 pandemic, the bat supply chain still isn't back to 100% normal. Many popular bats (in their most popular sizes) are next to impossible to get - as a result, we're willing to pay higher than retail prices for them in the secondary market so that we're able to make them available to our customers. Many customers value performance and convenience over price, so our "Rolled & Ready" inventory is purchased with this in mind.
