Batter up! The game of baseball is woven into the historical fabric of our nation. It is also intertwined with the history of Hillerich and Bradsby, the family-owned company that manufactures Louisville Slugger baseball bats. The Louisville Slugger Museum and Visitor Center celebrates the facts and legends associated with the bats and the revered sluggers who have used them. An enormous bat stretching 120 feet into the air welcomes fans of all ages to this dynamic museum and factory.
Fulfilling the dream of many a baseball fan, visitors may walk through a tunnel from a locker room onto the field at Camden Yards, where they are engulfed in a light and sound show that makes the physical experience come alive. The Museum captures the experience of a game in a stadium complete with press box, playing field, and bleachers.
Interactive video exhibits allow visitors to select their favorite pitchers and stand at the plate to experience an actual 90 mph fastball as it flies by into the catcher’s mitt. Recreated and actual working settings also enable the visitor to follow the making of a baseball bat from “The Forest to the Factory.”
