Louisville Slugger Museum & Factory located in Louisville, Kentucky’s “Museum Row”, part of the West Main District of downtown. While visiting the museum we learned about baseball history, how the company started, witnesses first-hand how Louisville Slugger bats are being made. We had a wonderful time!
After checking in we headed into the museum to join our group for the factory tour. We had a few minutes to roam around. On the main floor was several Lego creations.
As a history buff I was overjoyed with the life size figures highlighting MLB’s greatest. It was exciting to check out the different bat models created by some of the players. The tour was guided and no cameras were allowed. It lasted roughly 30 minutes before we headed out to enjoy the entire museum experience. At the end of the tour we received a miniature souvenir bat.
My Husband And His Bat
King Thrifty was given the nickname “Slugger” as baby. During our trip to Louisville two years ago he was upset we didn’t make it to the museum to purchase a custom bat. This time around I was determined to make sure my husband left with a custom bat and photo’s. When we were done exploring the museum I headed toward the gift shop I knew he would follow me. Once we were inside I said to him “baby go create a custom bat” he’s face lit up and he took off before I could say another word.
First he searched for the perfect bat while I filled out the form to customize the bat to say whatever he wanted. The wait time was 45 minutes so we headed back out into the museum for a second look.
After about an hour we headed back in to the gift shop to pick up his bat. Smiling from ear to ear he placed to smaller Cleveland Indian bats on the counter and waited patiently for the young woman to hand him the custom bat. Just like that he was the happiest guy on earth and I was wife of the year again.
