Barbecue and baseball. There are few things more iconic in the United States than slow-smoked meat and the game that brought us legends like Babe Ruth. So it’s only fitting that two titans of those respective worlds have come together in one of the most logical ways possible. On March 20th, Traeger and Louisville Slugger announced that they are partnering for a limited-edition run of Traeger Louisville Slugger Pellets.

100% Maple Hardwood Smoker Pellets made from Louisville Slugger Bat Material.

These pellets are not simply a PR move. This is a genuine partnership. Traeger is taking the leftover maple wood from the baseball bat manufacturing process and turning them into wood pellets. That means backyard pitmasters can embrace both of America’s pastimes around the grill. The wood used to make bats for players like 2023 National League MVP Ronald Acuña Jr and 2016 World Series Champion Kyle Schwarber can help you make mouthwatering pulled pork in your backyard.

“We’re bringing the same maple wood professional baseball players utilize at the plate to the plates in backyard cookouts,” said Traeger Grills CEO Jeremy Andrus in the press release. “Partnering with Louisville Slugger, a brand ingrained in the fabric of baseball for over a hundred years, was a natural fit, and we’re thrilled to bring this unique product to the Traegerhood.”

Traeger has established itself as one of the premier pellet grill manufacturers in the world. It’s as iconic to the pellet grill industry as Louisville Slugger is to baseball. That’s what makes this partnership make so much sense.

“Louisville Slugger has a storied history in baseball, and Traeger Grills shares our commitment to quality and tradition,” said Louisville Slugger senior director of global marketing Jennette Rauch. “Our maple hardwood, trusted by baseball legends, now adds a distinctive flavor to Traeger’s premium pellets. It’s a winning combination that brings the spirit of the game to every backyard.”

Louisville Slugger gets the maple wood from New York and Pennsylvania, much like backyard pitmasters throughout the ages have sourced their own wood for smoking. It’s tradition, something that we can all appreciate.

So whether you’re tailgating outside the ballpark, gathering around to watch the game (or listening on the radio, a time-honored baseball tradition,) or simply playing a game of catch, you can add the sweet flavor of maple to your next smoked meal. Not just any maple wood, though.

The maple that legends are made of. However, the new Traeger Louisville Slugger pellets are only around for a limited time, so don’t strike out on this opportunity. Check them out at http://www.traeger.com/.
