Louisville Slugger made specially branded 2015 World Series bats for players who will be in this year’s World Series. Both Mets and Royals players will swing with Louisville Slugger hand-made bats, including Mets’ Postseason record-setter Daniel Murphy and Curtis Granderson, David Wright, Michael Cuddyer, Wilmer Flores, Travis d’Arnaud, Juan Lagares and Kelly Johnson.
Louisville Slugger shipped bats to the Kansas City Royals after their victory at the American League pennant on Monday. Bats from the losing team in the ALCS were destroyed.
Louisville Slugger, the Official Bat of Major League Baseball, has made bats for players in every World Series since the first Fall Classic in 1903. Louisville Slugger’s World Series tradition continues in 2015, the brand’s 131st year in baseball.
More World Series home runs, RBI’s, and historic moments have involved a Louisville Slugger bat than all other bat companies combined, including Daniel Murphy of the Mets. The home runs he hit in six consecutive playoff games were launched with a birch C243 cupped model Louisville Slugger. Murphy’s Louisville Slugger bat is 33.5-inches long and weighs 31.5 oz. Murphy went 9 for 17 with 4 HRs in the NLCS and is 13 for 38 with 7 HRs in 9 Postseason games with his Louisville Slugger.
Players, managers, coaches and clubhouse staff of both World Series teams will receive commemorative Louisville Slugger World Series bats to note their participation in Major League Baseball’s Fall Classic. This is a decades-old tradition started by Louisville Slugger.
Personalized souvenir 2015 World Series logo Louisville Slugger bats, just like the ones the Major League clubs will receive, can be purchased online for fans.
