Louisville Slugger Museum and Factory
Recently named one of the Best Factory Tours for Kids in FamilyFun magazine, the Louisville Slugger Museum & Factory offers visitors the opportunity to see pieces of wood whittled down into the notorious Louisville Slugger bats that have graced major league ballfields for over a hundred years.
Every 20 minutes to an hour, a tour of the factory begins, providing guests with a 30-minutes explanation of the bat-making process, from the forests where the trees are chosen down to the engraving on each finished bat. At the end of each tour, everyone will receive their own miniature bat to take home.
After the tour, visitors can explore the museum which contains some of the most famous hitters' bats, such as Joe DiMaggio and David Ortiz.
Of particular interest is the Grand Slam Gallery, where one can pick up a famous bat used by one of the all-time greats; and also Gallery 125 which contains lifelike sculptures of Ken Griffey, Jr., Derek Jeter, etc.; and Bud's Batting Cage, where one can swing bats made to resemble those of Babe Ruth and Ted Williams.
