Louisville Slugger

The Entrance to the Museum.  The Biggest Bat in the World

Today we went to the Louisville Slugger Museum.  The kids loved it.  I thought it was very interesting to see how the bats were made.  The museum and factory did a good job of not boring the kids with too many details and giving them many opportunities to touch things and explore.  Here are the photo's from the day.  My only mistake was going on a Sunday when the factory was closed.  We got to walk through it, but not see it in action.  
Outside the Museum, where's Keener?

Babe and them
How many bats will this tree be?

That's one big glove!

The Bats the kids are holding are from this display case.  Not being a big baseball fan, the only name that I recognized was Micki Mantle.  I think Elizabeth is holding his bat.  Pretty cool to get to hold a real pro bat.
