Louisville Slugger is proud to continue offering an industry-best one year limited warranty (may vary outside the U.S.) from the original purchasers receipt date. (The new SB116 Omaha is a "NO WARRANTY" bat.)
To avoid fraudulent claims, consumers must save original receipt (proof of purchase).
Making false or fraudulent claims is illegal. This includes altering or creating a counterfeit sales receipt to make an out-of-warranty product appear to be in-warranty and/or making a claims under a fictitious name or address or under any name or address not your own. Submitting such documentation to H&B for replacement is a violation of state and federal laws. H&B will retain any bat returned under a fraudulent claim and such conduct will be referred to the appropriate law enforcement agencies for further investigation which could result in Federal prosecution under the U.S. Mail Fraud Statutes. (18 USC, Citation 1341 and 1342)
Louisville Slugger's warranty obligation is to the original owner and is non-transferable. Louisville Slugger DOES NOT accept receipts from PayPal, Paypoint, eBay or other auction websites. Your receipt must be from an authorized Louisville Slugger dealer to receive warranty services.
While more durable than wood, aluminum and composite bats can break and possibly cause injury to the batter, other players, or spectators. Inspect your bat frequently for surface damages such as cracks, dents, chips or breaks. Do not use bats that are broken, chipped, dented, cracked or have loose end caps or knobs. Hillerich & Bradsby Co. reserves the right to refuse warranty service to any person whom the Louisville Slugger Warranty Department deems as abusing its products or warranty policy.
Louisville Slugger tries to keep up with any rule changes that may arise throughout different leagues. We do not make or change the rules and cannot replace bats that no longer comply with rules that have been changed.
