How do I figure out which turning model of 33" MLB180 I have now? When using a fish scale to compare with other 33" bats the weight are very close but this one feels way lighter with a much different balance point. Even bats weighing several oz less on scale had a heavier perceived swing weight. When standing different bats side by side vertically & looking down from the knob end, the one I like has more diameter below the logo towards the knob to about the dipping line. This particular bat has transformed my batting percentages.
Bat turns for the MLB180 vary. I recommend contacting Louisville Slugger at 1-800-282-2287.
Who's signature is on this bat?
Signatures on the MLB180 bat vary. Some of the most common are Alex Rodriguez, Derek Jeter, Dustin Pedroia, Evan Longoria and Manny Ramirez.

I have checked your bats in stores and vary in weights, how does one know the weight?
The MLB180 produced by Louisville has an approximate -2 length to weight ratio. Wood is a different consistency compared to alloy or composite and weight is not exact. For instance a 34 inch MLB180 will weigh approximately 32 ounces (give or take a half ounce). A 33 inch model will weigh approximately 31 ounces (give or take a half ounce). A 32 inch model will weigh approximately 30 ounces (give or take a half ounce).

There are some wood bats that are stamped with BBCOR on them, such as the Baum Bat AAA Pro. You would need to check with your High School first before purchasing
