Scott Robarge : Louisville Slugger Museum & Factory Provides Insight into America’s Beloved Game

June 2, 2012 Louisville, Kentucky: the birthplace of the iconic Louisville Slugger bat. To baseball lovers everywhere, the Louisville Slugger is more than the official bat of Major League Baseball. It’s a window to a rich history of a beloved game. The museum gives visitors a unique view into the sport of baseball from the perspective of the game’s most valuable tool: the Louisville Slugger bat. The museum shows visitors how the sport has evolved over the last 100 plus years, in addition to celebrating the thrill of the game.

The Louisville Slugger Museum & Factory calls Louisville home, and allows visitors the opportunity to learn about the importance of the Louisville Slugger in baseball’s history. Visitors can experience engaging exhibits featuring unique baseball memorabilia, and can tour the factory where the bats are actually made. Visitors can’t miss the museum building; they’re encouraged to keep an eye out for the World’s Biggest Bat casually leaning against the museum building. Visitors also can take advantage of the opportunity of their visit to get their very own personalized Louisville Slugger.

The Louisville Slugger Museum & Factory boasts many unique exhibits. One such exhibit features a bat once used by George “Mule” Suttles, one of the Negro League’s best players. Another exhibit, “Ballparks: From Classic Cathedrals to Concrete Donuts,” juxtaposes the classic baseball photography of Jim Dow with rare artifacts borrowed from The Baseball Hall of Fame.

Over two million people have walked through the halls of the museum and factory since its inception, making it one of the most popular tourist attractions in Louisville.
