Louisville, KY, Part Three

DSCF0084 I promise that this is the LAST KY entry.  On the final day of our trip, Max and I visited the Louisville Slugger Museum and Factory, which is right in the downtown area.  They still manufacture the famous baseball bats and we took a tour through the factory (even though they wouldn’t let us take pictures while in it!). 

DSCF0077  Max and Mom posed in front of the BIG bat  DSCF0078 outside the entrance before we went into the museum part.  Once inside it was quite a shock to look UP and see this:  DSCF0080 Famous ball players from all teams were represented in this museum.  Max posed with this one (under protest!) DSCF0079 Then at the entrance to the factory, I got this shot before they closed our cameras down. DSCF0081 Just at the exit was this interesting plaque:  DSCF0082 I promised Max that he could have his wish to eat Kentucky Fried Chicken in Kentucky, so we stopped by one on our way back to Mom’s.  DSCF0085   All in all, it was a great trip!  We all had fun exploring Louisville and seeing my Mom and brother (and his family) again!  DSCF0086

That is a huge bat, wondering what it's made of.

Thanks for the comment! The sign under the bat says carbon steel. Check out the plaque in the pic underneath the bat pic.:)
