A bat built to run this game. Just like you. Introducing the all-new Meta Fastpitch Bat from Louisville Slugger. It features a revolutionary patent pending cantilevered gapped barrel design that maximizes performance and expands the sweet spot of the bat. The low compression barrel design and unmatched feel went through years of playtesting with elite talent. The end result? A cutting-edge high performer that’s ready to go as soon as you unwrap it.



  • Our MASH™ Composite works perfectly with our innovative gapped wall design to immediately and continually maximize performance. Unlike other gapped wall bats, our cantilevered inner barrel is not connected at the end cap, allowing it to translate on impact. The result is incredible performance along the entire barrel and a unique sound that cannot be ignored.


  • A two-piece design featuring our VTX™ Connection System, which allows for more independent movement between the barrel and handle. This provides a best-in-class feel with less vibration on every swing – something players have come to expect in every Louisville Slugger bat.


  • The all-new F2X™ Performance End Cap maximizes the barrel profile, bat control and swing speed. Its completely transparent design is a first in fastpitch and the perfect finishing touch on a bat built for elite talent.


  • The Meta showcases the perfect combination of an easy-swinging profile with just a touch of added weight toward the end of the barrel, helping players of all types and experience levels deliver maximum pop.


  • Designed to give players added tack and cushion, our Premium Pro Comfort Grip improves feel and bat control through the zone.


From the start, our team had one goal: build the unbuildable bat. Then find a way to make it a reality and improve with each new variation. That process wasn’t easy and it took time to ensure every detail was scrutinized – no matter how small. Starting with our injection-molded knob, we meticulously handcrafted every aspect of this bat to function flawlessly with one another. Our all-new F2X™ Performance End Cap features a similar base structure to some of the most iconic bats we’ve ever made, but with a never-before-seen transparent design. Every design element was driven by thousands of hours of player feedback – making sure the needs of every player type were met.  All this culminated in a completely new way to build a gapped wall bat that allows us to deliver better performance and durability to players – along with an attention-grabbing sound that’s going to take the game by storm. There’s no breaking in a Meta. It’s ready when you are.
