North Carolina To Use Louisville Slugger Bats

Posted December 18, 2012

— The University of North Carolina baseball program has agreed to an exclusive bat deal with Louisville Slugger.

The Tar Heels signed a six-year agreement to use BBCOR bats from the bat company they said in a release Tuesday..

"We are very excited to reunite with Louisville Slugger," said UNC Head Baseball Coach Mike Fox who took the Tar Heels to the College World Series five of six years between 2006 and 2011, reaching the championship in 2006 and 2007.

"Our program found itself in a unique position this past fall as our players were able to swing any make or model bat they desired. It was clear after our fall season that we needed to swing Louisville Slugger exclusively. In terms of performance, service, technology and the people, it was an easy decision. Louisville Slugger is baseball bats, and we are very fortunate to be a partner with such a first-class company."

In addition to North Carolina, other top collegiate programs sponsored by Louisville Slugger, include Arizona, Stanford, Florida State, Rice, Baylor and Louisville.
