I’m not a huge baseball fan, but still enjoyed the tour, as it’s moderately hands-on and very informative. Tour guide hands out mini baseball bats at the conclusion (plus one for the little guys/gals).

As a baseball fan, this was a really cool tour to take!! You get to see people hand making bats and then you get to see a machine make them faster!! Would recommend it to everyone heading to Louisville!!
