Louisville Slugger M9 Maple Wood Baseball Bat: WBM914-71CBH review by JLO
Pros: This bat has an awesome balanced feel to it. Its definitely one of the lighter wood bats on the market. Its pop is great and has a giant sweetspot. This bat is great for people switching from aluminum to wood. I also really like the thin handle and flared knob. Ive taken multiple balls to the handle and it hasnt snapped. Its a very durable bay but not taking the pop away from it. Overall this bat is GREAT. I advise anyone to get this bat. Cons:There was some large grain spots on it but it didn't affect the performance so who cares.

I read somewhere that on ash bats you want to hit against the grain (on the straight lines that are close together), and that on maple bats you want to hit on the grain (on the ovally, curved lines that are spaced far apart). If this is true, then would the "labels up" rule not apply to this bat, since the labels are on the grain?

The "label up rule" applies to all styles of wood bat. The manufacturer ensures that the hardest part of the bat is hitting the ball when this method is used.

If I were to purchase this bat would I make contact with the ball on the logo face side since it is a maple bat?

When swinging the Louisville Slugger M9 Maple Wood Bat (WBM914-71CBH) we advise having the label face straight up towards the sky or straight down towards the ground.

Is this bat good for a 13 year old entering Babe Ruth League? What's the difference between this bat and the M9C271BHC?

This Louisville Slugger M9 Maple Wood Bat (WBM914-71CBH) is the newest version of the M9 271 turn model from Slugger while the (M9C271BHC) is the discontinued version. Aside from a slight change in the logos on the barrel, these two bats are the same. Louisville Slugger changed their logos last year and changed all of their bat models to reflect this. For players in the 15-18 year old divisions, this would be a great wood bat option. It conforms to BBCOR testing but does not need a BBCOR stamp, as it's made from one solid piece of Maple. For the specific requirements of your league, it's best to check with a coach or league director.

Product Description

The Louisville Slugger M9 maple wood bat is well known on baseball diamonds everywhere. Louisville Slugger uses professional grade, hand-picked maple to make this bat. Maple is a very dense timber with a greater surface hardness than ash, leading many players to believe it gives them a sizable bump in performance. Maple wood is a very close-grained timber, and this unique grain structure prevents the barrel from flaking. The quality of timber used by Louisville Slugger on these bats is second to none, making for a very high quality product. The M9 maple is also kiln dried for optimum moisture content. The pro cupped end on these M9 maple bats is ideal for controlling the weight for maximum bat speed, since maple can tend to be a bit heavier. The medium barrel offers one of the best sweet spots possible without compromising durability. The strength of the maple bats make them perfect for high school, college, adult, minor leagues, and major leagues. The number of major leaguers using maple wood bats has increased each year as their performance and durability have been unmatched. Louisville Slugger: The Official Bat of Major League Baseball.
