Louisville Slugger Museum & Factory

How Baseball Bats are Made

Have you ever wondered how baseball bats are made? A visit to the Louisville Slugger Museum & Factory is a great way to quench your thirst for knowledge.

Louisville Slugger is a brand of baseball bats, produced and sold by the Hillerich & Bradsby Company, established in 1855. This venerable date shows that this is a company with plenty of history. And indeed, the hallowed halls of the museum are filled to the brim with memorabilia from bygone days of America’s favorite past time.

Here you not only have the opportunity to delve into the past of baseball, but also to touch and hold original bats of true baseball legends. These include bats by Babe Ruth, Derek Jeter and Johnny Bench.

A guided tour of the factory allows you to take a look at the actual production of new bats up close. The tour then ends with a nice gift: your own Louisville Slugger mini bat.
