Owner description: 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!

Arrived 5 minutes before the next tour was to depart - had just a few minutes to take pics and see some of the exhibits in the gallery (thankfully, you can re-enter later). The tour was the perfect length - not too short, not too long. It was a good mix of hands-on, live narration, and video. Got to handle the prototype bats for many of our favorite players (including Josh Hamilton and Derek Jeter). The process itself was really neat to watch - all of our crew enjoyed it (ages ranging from 10-70). Loved the souvenier bat we each recieved at the end of the tour. Be sure to catch the 12 minute movie and go outside and take some pics next to the GIANT bat. A must-do for baseball fans of all ages!
