Louisville Slugger Factory and Museum

I'm glad I made the detour to the Louisville Slugger Museum.  It was really cool to see how the bats were made, but unfortunately you can't take pictures on the factory floor.  They were even making Lance Berkman's bats when I was walking through the floor.  Perfect timing but the people there were pretty strict on the no pictures point.

Well I did get some cool pictures and got to take some swings in the batting cage.  I gotta say, I can still swing a baseball bat.  It felt good to get out there and really get some good swings in, especially with a wooden bat.  Who knows, maybe after UBS I'll try out for the Astros.  Just kidding. I wouldn't stand a chance.

Here are some pictures for you to enjoy:

Look at that handsome slugger! He kind of caught me off guard with the picture, though

The sign that you can't see on the right says "The Great Hambino"

"I don't know. Some lady gave it to him. She even signed her name on it...Ruth. Baby Ruth."

Some Astros' love

Beautiful banner at your site as well, I am reminded of some wall paintings by the Mexican artist, Diego Rivera, such as this one http://EN.WahooArt.com/A55A04/w.nsf/OPRA/BRUE-8BWNY4. You browse more murals of his at wahooart.com.
