Louisville MLB Prime Maple DJ2 Derek Jeter
With the Captain, you swing for rings. This version of the DJ2 features a navy to gray stain finish with a unique pinstripe center brand decal. Previously known as the P72, this model was given its name when Yankees shortstop Derek Jeter retired in 2014 after using the bat his entire career. The DJ2 features a standard handle thickness and longer barrel taper and was preferred by Jeter because it closely resembled the aluminum bat he used in high school.
The 2020 MLB Prime lineup is 135 years in the making. Our team has applied its extensive wood bat knowledge to develop a product that, from knob to cup, is unmatched. Each of the 2020 models feature an easy-to-read knob medallion embedded in the knob that indicates the MLB Prime grade of wood, the species and the length, while the bat name and production date is engraved in the surrounding area.
These bats also now feature a Craftsman-Style Cup, created specifically to curb breakage and maintain hardness on contact. To give these bats an unparalleled look and feel, the 2020 MLB Prime bats are all coated with our new EXOPRO finish, which creates a beautiful mirror-like appearance and unmatched level of hardness. Seamless Decals on the center, end and back brands blend into the bat almost as intricately as the grain itself.
All in all, the 2020 MLB Prime bats are the finest Louisville Slugger bats created in over a century of craftsmanship.. This is the 2020 MLB Prime lineup. This is Louisville Slugger.
