LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) - It'll be the Texas Rangers and the St. Louis Cardinals in the World Series and, of course, they'll need special bats to play.

The folks at the Louisville Slugger factory are busy making the championship series commemorative bats and the bats that the players will use on the field.

Louisville Slugger works with about 55 percent of the players in the World Series. Each position player will get three bats and the pitchers will get two.

And of course, you can get one of these bats for yourself.

The World Series starts Wednesday night in St. Louis.
