Don't make the mistake of thinking all wood bats are the same. They may look similar, but the quality of wood is very different from one wood bat company to another. Louisville slugger sets itself apart from other bat makers with over 125 years of bat making experience, outstanding turning models and the ability to offer the best quality wood on the market. This quality comes at a price. Louisville Slugger bats can be more expensive than other bats because Slugger only uses the very best timber to make their bats. With wood bats, you get what you par for. Cheaply priced wood bats usually means cheap-quality wood.

Why Maple?

Harder hitting surface. Maple is a very dense timber with a greater surface hardness than Ash. Some players believe this hardness gives them better performance. Maple is a closed-grain timber - this makes it less prone to flake like Ash and allows for more durability. When a Maple bat breaks, it tends to snap in half rather than just splinter like Ash. The heavier weight of maple makes it difficult to make lightweight large barrel models. Most player who use maple use a model with a certain sized barrel to get the bat weight they desire.

Maple is generally considered as more popular right now. It has become prominent over the last decade, driven by MLB players using Maple.
