Major League Baseball announced all bats made and used throughout the 2009 season by Louisville Slugger, the official bat of MLB, will contain a special logo commemorating Louisville Slugger’s 125-year anniversary.
The logo will be placed between the center brand and the end brand that contains the player’s name and model number on each Louisville Slugger bat issued throughout the year.
This marks the third time in Louisville Slugger’s history that MLB is allowing a logo to be placed on its bats. In 1976, a 200th anniversary logo for the United States was added to each Louisville Slugger used in the Major Leagues. In 2006, Louisville Slugger placed the breast cancer ribbon logo on the pink bats it created for Mother’s Day.
