LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) - As they have for over a century Louisville Slugger is stepping up to the plate to make bats for the World Series game.

The Louisville Slugger factory started producing the bats on Monday for the Boston Red Sox and St. Louis Cardinals who will take to the diamond for the first game in the series on Wednesday.

Rick Redman, with Louisville Slugger, said, "More homeruns, more RBIs, more historic moments in the World Series and in baseball have taken place with a Louisville Slugger than all other bat companies combined. It's something we take great pride in as the official bat of Major League Baseball and we're looking forward to players leaving their mark this World Series."

Although they have made the bats for the players in every World Series since 1903 this year Louisville Slugger introduced its high gloss finished bats. They will also give each player a commemorative bat for their participation.
