The Louisville Sluggar has been an iconic part of Major League Baseball since 1884, when it was put in the hands of some of the greatest players that ever stepped into that diamond and the Louisville Slugger museum is a tribute to that infamous bat, those behind it, and the fact that baseball has changed so much since then. There are some neat and fun exhibits that you can see at the museum including holding some of the Louisville Slugger bats that were used in some pretty famous games — including Mickey Mantle, David Ortiz and Johnny Bench.
