Batter up! It takes a special place to craft the #1 Bat in Major League Baseball. At Louisville Slugger Museum & Factory, experience history-in-the-making as you stroll through the actual factory where world-famous Louisville Slugger bats are created. The award-winning factory tour is a highlight of the visit here, but there's plenty more to enjoy along with it. Admire the World's Biggest Bat - stretching 120 feet into the sky. Hold bats actually used by baseball superstars like Mickey Mantle, Johnny Bench, Cal Ripken Jr. And Derek Jeter. Face down a 90-mph fastball hurled by a major league pitcher. Count the homerun notches Babe Ruth carved into his Louisville Slugger bat for every home run he hit with it. Step into the batting cages and take some swings with a replica model of your hero's bat. Guests even get a free miniature souvenir bat at the end of the factory tour. You can even create a bat with your own name on it, just like the pros. They make great gifts for all kinds of special occasions, from newborn babies, to groomsmen gifts, to team trophies and more. The museum store is also loaded with lots of sporty merchandise for every budget. Be sure to swing by!

Interesting and informative tour of the factory to see how baseball bats are made. Life size model of baseball players which made for a great photo opportunity. Batting for kids and lots more. Fun for the family.

This should be on every baseball fan’s bucket list. The tour costs $15 and is well worth is. You see how baseball bats were made by hand up to 1980. The C & C machines they use now can make a bat in 30 seconds....More

I am sorry but I have no idea what happens during Derby Week. You should be able to contact them directly or go online to their website for information. You will enjoy the tour if you go. Quite informative and fun.
