The Louisville Slugger Museum gives the phrase "Play Ball!" a new meaning with a 21-ton, stone sculpture of a glove standing in one hall of the museum. This factory tour (conducted on Main Street) comes close to epitomizing the American dream, as Louisville creates bats not only for the little leaguers itching to take the tour but for the pros as well. The tour shows the process in which bats are made (95% by a machine that takes all of 40 seconds!). It's also a museum filled with baseball memorabilia, including the Sluggers of baseball greats like Ty Cobb, Lou Gehrig and Babe Ruth. All visitors leave with a mini-version of the original Slugger bat made on location.
Tours are given Monday through Saturday, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.
Tours begin every 20 minutes, with the last one starting at 4pm. We recommend you allow 90 minutes to enjoy the experience. Visitors receive a free miniature souvenir bat with the tour!
Group rates available for 20 or more. Please contact Elizabeth Barton
