Louisville Slugger Museum Factory
ELWOOD VISITS THE LOUISVILLE SLUGGER FACTORY AND MUSEUM
IN LOUISVILLE, KENTUCKY, WHERE ELSE?.
I GOT TO THE LOUISVILLE SLUGGER
MUSEUM EARLY, SO I DECIDED TO
REST OUTSIDE UNTIL THEY OPENED.

ELWOOD DIDN’T REALIZE HE WAS USING THE WORLD’S LARGEST BAT AS A BACK REST!! THIS IS AN EXACT REPLICA OF BABE RUTH’S 34” LOUISVILLE SLUGGER, ONLY A LITTLER BIGGER! 68 THOUSAND POUNDS OF STEEL AND STANDING 120 FEET TALL!!!

I PAL UP WITH, ALEX, ANOTHER
VISITOR THAT DAY AND WE WAIT
FOR OUR TOUR TO BEGIN. NOTICE WE
HAVE RED AND GREEN ON TO MATCH
THE CHRISTMAS DECOR IN THE LOBBY.

ALEX AND I ARE PUT TO WORK IN THE FACTORY. WE HAVE TO GET AMERICA’S BEST WOOD TO RUN THROUGH THE LATHE; THIS WILL PRODUCE THE WORLD’S GREATEST BAT, “THE LOUISVILLE SLUGGER”. OH, I’M RIDING, BECAUSE I TOLD MY FRIEND I WOULD NEED TO POINT OUT THE WAY TO THE WOOD VAULT. I’M NOT SURE ALEX BOUGHT THAT STORY.

ALEX AND I UNLOAD THE WOOD AND THE LATHE STARTS IT JOB! , CUTTING OUT THE ORIGIONAL “LOUISVILLE SLUGGER” BASEBALL BAT.

AFTER THE SHAPING, I HELP PUT THE FINISHING TOUCHES ON A FUTURE “HALL OF FAME” PLAYER’S BAT! WELL, THAT IS, ALEX DID MOST OF THE DETAIL, BUT I WATCHED UNTIL HE WAS DONE.

AFTER ALL THE WORK WAS DONE, THERE WERE MANY THINGS LEFT TO SEE AND DO. I TOOK IN A MOVIE AT THE THEATRE, HIT SOME BALLS AT BUD’S BATTING CAGE, AND DECIDED TO VISIT THE 2 GALLERIES FILLED WITH BASEBALL HISTORY. I TOOK TIME TO GET A PICTURE WITH “THE SULTAN OF SWAT”, BABE RUTH.
AS YOU CAN SEE I’M GIVING HIM SOME LAST MINUTE BATTING TIPS.
AFTER HITTING THE GIFT SHOP I DECIDED TO REST.

THIS GIANT GLOVE WAS CARVED FROM 450,000,000 YEAR-OLD KENTUCKY LIMESTONE AND IS SEVENTEEN TONS. IT’S ENTITLED “PLAY BALL”, AND ONLY ONE OF THE THOUSANDS OF EXPERIENCES YOU CAN ENJOY AND LEARN ABOUT AT “THE LOUISVILLE SLUGGER MUSEUM AND FACTORY”. IF YOU’RE FUTURE PLANS TAKE YOU THROUGH KENTUCKY, IT’S A MUST SEE.
