We all know the hot start Christian Yelich is off to at the plate. What you didn’t know is that Christian is also off to a hot start as a bat designer. In collaboration with Louisville Slugger, Christian has worked to create a special version of his Pro Prime S318 model bat. The bat is heavily influenced by Christian’s youth growing up in Southern California on Zuma Beach designed to look like ocean waves, and a knob medallion featuring the lifeguard tower from Zuma Beach, CA.

The West Coast native goes back to his roots with this Cali-inspired S318, featuring a deep flame handle to represent beach wood and a deep blue and black barrel, bringing his love of the beach with him to the plate.
This fun-loving bat comes together in a big way with the center brand, designed to look like ocean waves, and a knob medallion featuring the lifeguard tower from Zuma Beach, CA. The S318 is a medium-barrel bat with a dramatic transition from barrel to handle. It has a traditional, slight knob taper and its short barrel-to-handle taper helps create its end-loaded feel.
The all-new Louisville Slugger MLB Pro Prime lineup is the culmination of hours of collaboration between your favorite MLB stars and the Louisville Slugger product managers. These bats allow players to express themselves, showcasing their interests, hobbies, and personality in a one-of-a-kind MLB Prime bat.
Available in limited quantities. 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 the 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 an 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. This is the 2020 MLB Prime lineup. This is Louisville Slugger.

This is the second Pro Prime series bat in the market. The series is inspired by collaborations with MLB® players and Louisville Slugger. Each player involved in the Pro Prime series will debut two models: their game model bats and a unique player-inspired model. Both available on Slugger.com: slugger.com/en-us/baseball/wood/prime/mlb-pro-prime-s318-christian-yelich-player-inspired-model-baseball-bat.
