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! Please visit our official website for up-to-date hours and admission prices.

This place offered far more than I imagined. Part history museum, part batting cages, and part factory, this building houses a lot of interesting information on America’s baseball traditions.

If you go after 6 it is half price. The only difference after 6 is that the factory is not fully functioning at that time. Many of the workers are gone home by then. But you save a lot by going in the evening.

You can find parking but you may have to use a meter. There's no charge to get into the store. AAA discount for full tour. I assume the batting cages are somewhere out of sight. Didn't see a lot of softball items. Everyone... More
