LOUISVILLE, KY. (WDRB) -- Louisville Slugger is going to bat for the U of L's men's basketball team's championship win.
The limited edition bats being made at the Slugger Factory don't just have Cardinal colors -- they're also engraved with the scores of every Louisville game from the tournament along with the championship banner.
Only 2,013 bats will be sold. Rick Redman of Louisville Slugger says, "Even some of the media across the country were calling the team the Louisville Sluggers." Redman says people are buying the bat as quickly as they can make them.
The bats are just under $100 and are officially licensed -- so the university benefits from the sales.
They can be bought online or at Louisville Slugger downtown.
