The 2022 Louisville Slugger Select PWR is a BBCOR only bat for 2022. It's an endloaded hybrid built for big hitters who want a big time bat but aren't interested in the hype surrounding The Goods. The Select goes toe to toe with any bat on the market. If you can swing it then it's a great pick. That said, the 2020 and 2021 versions of the bat are exactly the same, so if you can find those in stock then go that route.
The bat hasn't changed since the 2020 version. So, if you can find that or the 2021 version then going for the 2022 doesn't make much sense---unless you're in love with the color scheme for some reason. In either case, those who want a heavier swing on a hybrid bat that comes hot out of the wrapper could be really happy with this bat.
There are no changes between the 2022 and 2021 (or 2020) version of the BBCOR PWR Select from Slugger.
The 2022 Slugger Select PWR is a two piece bat with an alloy barrel and a composite handle. The connection piece in the middle is relatively stiff compared to bats like the CF or Quatro Pro, but about the same as bats like the Goods or HZRDUS. The bat is referred to as a Hybrid and comes only comes in an endloaded (PWR) version.
Built for pop, the 2022 Select PWR (-3) BBCOR Bat from Louisville Slugger is hotter than ever. The EXD Alloy barrel is extended a half-inch further than traditional BBCOR models, which means you get an ever bigger, highly responsive sweet spot. The three-piece design puts the stiff feel elite players crave in your hands while the 3FX-PWR™ Connection System maximizes efficiency and the PWR End Cap helps deliver maximum energy transfer on every single swing.
