We are a mother and daughter who both love to write. We decided to start this blog so we could spend time together doing something
we both love and share it with you. We specialize in reviewing fun places to go and fun things to do, but we talk a little bit about everything.
We would love to hear your views too.

What-To-Do Wednesday - Virtual Visits - Louisville Slugger Museum and Factory

If you want to get your dose of culture while being stuck inside, many museums and other attractions offer a variety of virtual exhibits. This is an especially great time to explore museums and attractions that are outside of your area and maybe even outside of your country that you ordinarily would not be able to get to because of time and/or money constraints. We will doing so as well and  we will be sharing one or more of our virtual visits in today's and future What-To-Do Wednesday posts

What: Louisville Slugger Museum and Factory

Where: 800 W. Main 
             Louisville, KY

Louisville Slugger began in 1864 as a woodworking shop known as J.F. Hillerich, Job Turning.  The company eventually began making bats for young Bud Hillerirch and his friends and later began making bats for professional baseball players. Over the years, numerous baseball players have all had their bats made by the company including Hall-of-Famers like Honus Wagner, Babe Ruth, Jackie Robinson, Ted Williams and Derek Jeter. The current Louisville Slugger  Factory and Museum opened in 1996 and was renovated in 2008.
