Questions and Answers for Louisville Slugger M9 Maple Wood Baseball Bat: WBM914-71CBH

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.
