Louisville Slugger Softball Bats Recalled Due to Handle Separation Risk

Roughly 13,000 Louisville Slugger softball bats have been recalled, after approximately 170 reports were received by the manufacturer of the bat barrel separating from the handle during use, posing a potential injury risk for players and bystanders.  

The Louisville Slugger OneX Fastpitch softball bat recall was announced by the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) on May 2, in response to problems where the bat handle may detach from the barrel. Among the reported incidents, at least one involved a player who was hit by the broken bat.

The bat recall includes all OneX Fastpitch softball bats made with the name brand Louisville Slugger. The bats have a white and grey shell with “Louisville Slugger oneX” appearing twice on the barrel in blue and yellow writing. The bats also have an “X” written in yellow on both sides of the bat.

The softball bats were manufactured in China and imported by Hillerich & Bradsby Co. of Louisville, Kentucky where they were sold nationwide at sporting goods stores, retail stores, and college amateur softball teams from May 2012 through February 2013 for roughly $350.00.

The CPSC recommends that consumers immediately stop using the recalled bats and contact Hillerich & Bradsby at (800) 282-2287 or visit them online at www.slugger.com to receive a free replacement bat and the choice of an additional free item.
