Hello baseball bat experts i have a question, I noticed some of the more recent bats i have some have the MLB logo some dont, some have the TPX logo on the back of the barrell. Can someone tell me what this means and what years it may represent?

updating, does anyone know about these logos?

i think they started putting those logos on bats in either 2002 or 2003. i was told that alex rodriguez requested his bats without the logos and that is why you dont see them on his bats.

bulbus actually it started in the mid to late 90's becuz i have a quite a few bats from then that have logos that dont have logos, that have both logos that have 1 logo, So i was just wondering was there a specific purpose for them and if becuz of these logos it can be broken down to what year that bat came from?

Here is a great source of information courtesy of Jeff Scott (BirdBats) on recent Louisville Slugger labeling that includes MLB logo, TPX logos, M9 and B9 logos:


Good Luck.
