2022 Louisville Slugger Omaha

By Bat Digest | Last Updated March 3, 2022

Is any bat more iconic than the Omaha? Although the bat hasn’t changed for years it stands at the top of most performance and preference lists. Throw in a great price and huge range of sizes and you have yourself a winner. Big hitters in the NCAA love it, small hitters in USA want it too. It’s all fields all player bat and we think it one of the best options for 2022. (It does NOT come in a USSSA version for 2022).

The main problem with the BBCOR version of the bat is that it is only available at slugger.com. They did not make it for wide distribution.

USA Drop 10 Review

The Omaha in USA for 2022 is an entry-level performance bat made for the hitter who wants a bigger barrel on a single-piece alloy. Although this bat might not feel as good as more expensive bats when poor contact is made, the bat can hit the ball just as far as anything else in the USA standard. The swing weight is balanced and the sizes from 27 through 32-inch should fit most players. The USA Omaha isn't anything to get too excited about, but it will hit the ball hard when squared up and, at a reasonable price, it's a value buy through and through.

Comparable Bats

Single-piece alloy bats for 2022 are plentiful. You can find similarly rated bats in the Easton ALX, DeMarini Voodoo One, DeMarini Goods One and Rawlings 5150.

Construction

The 2022 Louisville Slugger Omaha is a simple bat with a simple design that is made to do what its bats do: hit balls. It is a single-piece alloy with a huge range of sizes in every league. The 33 and 34-inch BBCOR versions of the bats swing purposefully heavy. The 32 and below should be considered light. All the USA versions should be considered balanced bats.

Overall Ratings Key

To keep consistent ratings across years, models and brands, we’ve devloped an aggregated rating system using 6 categories. As well, we track swing weight (MOI), stiffness and profile although they do not affect the overall score directly. The explanation of each rating is below.

  1. MOI: is the swing weight accurately measured at our bat lab. We score it 1 through 5. No score is better than another. This is a descriptive value. A lower number (1) represents a light swinging bat for its class, while a higher number (5) represents an endloaded bat.
  2. Tech: The tech advancements in the bat are 5% of its overall score. We award points for innovation even if the invention encourages the industry to try new things.
  3. Durability: The bat’s lifespan is rated at 15% of the overall score. We gather this information almost exclusively from the user and player feedback. More reports of a bat breaking then the lower the score.
  4. Stiffness: Stiffness is not counted towards the overall score since it’s a complete preference. The higher the number, the stiffer the bat, the lower the number, the more flex in the bat directly after contact. This is significantly correlated to how good a bat feels on mishits and hits.
  5. Profile: The profile does not count towards the overall score. However, we do track it. A high number means the bat has an extensive profile, and a lower number means it has a small profile.
  6. Resell: We count the secondary market of a used value of the bat as 10% of the overall score. We think the demand for the bat in the secondary market (eBay and SidelineSwap) are a good indicator of how well the bat is perceived to perform. It also shows a more excellent value for the owner as their bat retains more value and no longer becomes valuable to them.
  7. Rating: This is the player rating and represents 25% of the overall score. These are gathered from our hitters and reviews we find online and those we have contact with from other reputable sources.
  8. EV: Exit Velocity is the rankings we create in our exit speed velocity tests every year on bats. This score represents 25% of the overall score.
  9. Relevance: Relevance measures how applicable and available a bat is for consumers. The broader range of sizes and the more appropriate the swing weight for the masses then, the higher the score. This metric accounts for 20% of the overall score.
