  • Man I was not expecting the wave of nostalgia I got hit with when I visited this place. It brought back so many memories for my early childhood, and all the way through high school ball.

  • We needed a stop on our road-trip from MN to Panama City Beach to break it up and stretch our legs and let me tell you this didn’t Disappoint!! Our teenage kids Loved stopping here and doing the tour! They were all very happy that we decided to do it! As parents that was a success! Best part is, Each person got a Mini Bat as keepsake with Tour Ticket Cost! No need to spend anymore in gift shop! 2-4-1 ⚾️
  • Anyone who has even a passing interest in the game of baseball, should make the pilgrimage to the Louisville slugger museum and factory. We enjoyed our tour very much. The tour guides and other staff were super friendly. It turns out I was visiting with a friend who was a diabetic, and because we were there in the early afternoon, and he had hadn't eaten all day, his blood sugar got low enough that he actually collapsed and nearly passed out. Our tour guide called security and they brought a wheelchair and a few pieces of candy. They helped me lift my buddy up into the wheelchair, and after he had a few pieces of candy to raise his blood sugar, we continued on with the tour. The entire tour is handicap accessible as I pushed him the rest of the day. At every turn the tour guide kept checking on my buddy and gave us preferential treatment. Could not recommend this place any higher. Make sure you stand by the automatic pitching machine that throws a 90 mph fastball into a dummy catcher to get an idea of what the pros are up against. Being from the Pittsburgh area where I grew up, and of course being a Pirate fan, I really appreciated all of the photos and memorabilia from my youth that were on display there. I'm sure that any baseball fan would love this place.
