Kentucky- Louisville Slugger Museum & Factory #TuesdaysTravels

My  middle son has played baseball and more baseball all of his sweet youth a baseball or bat has been in his hands.  We were super excited to pay the Louisville Slugger Museum a visit with him. One we're in Florida so it was a bit of a road trip.  Located right off Main Street in Louisville, Kentucky you can't miss it!

You can tour the many exhibits and learn all about the different kinds of baseball bats and what they are made of .  One of the things my boys enjoyed seeing was the section for pro players.  Each player has a cubby like section that holds the billets that will later make their bats.  Each player can have a customized bat. It goes through a computerized system that puts in unique specifications for that players bat. My boys thought that was pretty cool. ( Us girls were not as into it sorry)

At the end of the tour everyone receives a cute mini bat for a souvenir. Of course for my boys a mini bat just would not do we had to buy a bat while there.  I mean how many times will we be in Kentucky at the Louisville Slugger Museum right?
