Louisville Slugger BBCOR Baseball Bats
New for 2019, Louisville Slugger has released 4 updated proven bat models to help create some of the best BBCOR bats on the market. These bats range from end-loaded bats designed for strong power hitters, to balanced light-swinging bats crafted for hitters seeking bat control and increased bat speed. Below is a chart detailing the swing weights of each of Louisville Sluggers’ 4 new BBCOR baseball bat models. To see all of the 2019 Louisville Slugger BBCOR offerings, click here.
At the top of Louisville’s BBCOR line is the Prime 919. The Louisville Slugger Prime 919 (-3) is designed for every type of hitter who likes the feel of a balanced bat at the plate. The materials used in the Prime 919’s construction are what set it apart from its competition. Microform Composite, found in both the handle and barrel, is some of the strongest and highest-performing material on the market while also remaining extremely light. Apart from the 34 inch model, which swings fairly end-loaded, the Prime 919 is a balanced bat with a light swing-weight.
The new VCX Connection Technology binds the two pieces of Microform Composite while allowing for independent movement and cutting down on vibrations felt at contact. The connection piece, although different, seemingly performs the same as the TRU3 Connection piece seen on previous models.
Another update on the Louisville Slugger Prime 919 is the grip. Lizard Skins will no longer be featured on Slugger’s bats. All Louisville Slugger bats will now feature grips made by Slugger that are very similar to Lizard Skins. While Lizard Skins was a nice addition to previous Louisville bats, their absence is hardly a deal breaker when looking at the Prime 919.

Louisville Slugger’s top of the line hybrid BBCOR baseball bat is the Select 719. The Louisville Slugger Select 719 is crafted for the hitter who likes a stiff two-piece end loaded bat. The ST 7U1+ Alloy barrel coupled with the composite handle come together to give the hitter the best of both worlds.
Connecting the alloy barrel and composite handle is Louisville Slugger’s new VCX connection piece. This piece deadens vibrations helping to create a phenomenal feel at contact.

The 2019 Solo 619 is Louisville Slugger’s new light-swinging, one-piece alloy bat. An SL Hyper Alloy is used in the construction of the Solo 619. This alloy is crafted in a one-piece construction to help create a stiff bat with a light swing weight, helping hitters get the bat through the zone quickly.
The light swing weight of the Solo 619 is perfect for hitters who value bat speed and bat control, while the large sweet spot provides a huge hitting surface giving extra room for error.

One of Louisville Slugger’s oldest bat models is the Omaha. The Louisville Slugger Omaha 519 features a traditional one-piece construction crafted with ST 7U1+ Alloy. This extremely durable and high-performing alloy makes the Omaha a favorite among every type of hitter looking for a quality bat at a reasonable price.
The Louisville Slugger Omaha 519 offers a slightly end-loaded feel, making it more ideal for a stronger hitter who can handle more weight in the barrel.
