Just in time for the holidays, Louisville Slugger has partnered with the Alumni Associations of the University of Kentucky and the University of Louisville to offer one-of-a-kind personalized bats. Louisville Slugger has pledged to donate a significant portion of the sale proceeds to the Associations to use toward scholarships and other programs.

The bats are one-of-a-kind because they are the first of the Louisville Slugger licensed bats to be a signature color – the UK version is blue with white type and a white UK logo, and the U of L version is red with black type and a black logo.

The bats can be ordered online at www.sluggergifts.com  or fans can call 1-866-785-BATS (2287). The cost is $100 per bat, and Louisville Slugger is donating $20 for each bat sold. The end of the bat can be engraved (up to 4 lines of 25 characters each) in either script or block print. Orders must be placed by December 15 in order to guarantee Christmas delivery.
