A Brief History of Ash

It started with a baseball bat. A single handmade bat signaled the birth of the iconic Louisville Slugger in 1884—still the bat of choice for many pro ball players today. After a game, 17-year-old Bud Hillerich invited a player to his father’s woodshop, convinced the two could end the batter’s slump. Bud selected a piece of lightweight, durable white ash and set to work. The next day, Pete “the Gladiator” Browning was three for three, and everyone in the league clamored for that bat.

When Babe Ruth, Hank Aaron, Willie Mays, Ted Williams, and Ty Cobb knocked it out of the park, they held white ash Louisville Sluggers in their hands.
