2022 Louisville Slugger Solo USA Drop 11
Find Similar Bats

The Solo in USA drop 10 for 2022 is a legit bat with a good-sized barrel that has been a fan favorite since USA's inception in 2018. The bat is light, has a less unreasonable price point, and comes in a huge swath of sizes to fit just about player. Performance-wise it does really well and clearly meets the USA standard. We don't think anyone will be writing home to grandma about the SOLO in USA for 2022 (it hasn't changed from 2021), but we do think you'll get a quality bat for reasonable price that will last and work well.

2022 Louisville Slugger Solo BBCOR
Find Similar Bats

The 2022 Louisville Slugger Solo in BBCOR is a single piece bat with a light swing and reasonably sized barrel. We think it feels and performs much like the 2022 Voodoo One which gets, for any number of hype level reason, way more pub in the social fear. It sounds duller than the Voodoo One, but it definitely hits the ball just as hard. The Solo in BBCOR hasn't changed much since its release in 2016/17, but it still packs a punch and is a great fit for the kid for one of the lightesting swinging single piece alloy bats on the market.
