Jeter and Louisville Slugger team up one last time

Posted: Updated:
LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Louisville Slugger will be a hit during the Major League Baseball All-Star Game, which airs July 15th.

This year will be Derek Jeter's 14th and final appearance of his illustrious career, and he'll be bringing his most trusted friend onto the field: his personal Louisville Slugger.

It's the same model that Jeter has used for his entire major league career.

"12,300 plate appearances and every single one of them has been with a p72 slugger," said Rick Redman, the V.P. of Communications at Louisville Slugger. "That's loyalty. We appreciate that loyalty and we take pride in being able to be a partner with someone like Derek Jeter and all of Major League Baseball."

Louisville Slugger is also making special blue commemorative bats for the All-Star Game.
