2022 Louisville Slugger Select PWR Review

The 2022 Slugger Select PWR hasn’t changed since it’s 2020 version, but that doesn’t matter because it is fantastic. You’ll find, even today, kids at all upper levels of the sport crushing balls. In a world where bats like The Goods and Voodoo get all the love, a good hard look at the 2022 PWR Select from Slugger for that stronger upperclass man can be a real steal.

2022 Select PWR Models

Models Overview

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.

General Recommendations

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.
