Travel Haiku - Louisville Slugger Museum (State of Kentucky)


Louisville Slugger Museum
old fan talks as if he's at
a baseball match

Louisville Slugger Museum
old man misses no details
of his idols' triumphs

Louisville Slugger Museum
at every bat, he talks about
his idol's victories

For a look into the history of America's favorite pastime, head to the Louisville Slugger Museum and Factory, just a ball toss away from where 'Bud' Hillerich created the first Louisville Slugger at his father's woodworking shop in 1884. Since that time, almost every baseball great has held an adaptation of this bat on his shoulder. Famous bats on the walls include the one Hank Aaron used to hit homers 698,699, and 700, and the 1927 Louisville Slugger Babe Ruth swung at the plate to hit 21 home runs. Tour the factory and purchase your own personalized bat at the gift store on the way out.

Poem of the Day

poet Robert Frost

Some say the world will end in fire,
Some say in ice.
From what I've tasted of desire
I hold with those who favor fire.
But if it had to perish twice,
