Louisville Slugger Museum and Factory

Since 1884, Louisville’s Hillerich & Bradsby has been putting prime lumber into the hands of the greatest players of the game. While baseball itself has changed a bit between then and now, as a visit to the Louisville Slugger Museum and Factory will attest, the crack of the bat remains one of the sporting world’s most thrilling moments.
