I would've never thought of that. Baseball bats are round so it's never crossed my mind that they're supposed to be used a certain way but you're right. Apparently makers place their branding on the weakest part so that should be either up or down so the strongest grain is presented to the ball. That's my new bit of useless trivia learned for the day.
