This year is a banner year for Louisville Slugger contract players at the Baseball Hall of Fame. All three player inductees –Jeff Bagwell, Ivan Rodriguez and Tim Raines – signed promotional contracts and we couldn’t be happier to celebrate their inductions.
As the Louisville Slugger Museum & Factory team hits the road the next two weekends, we’ll be thinking of the All-Star legends of the game whose history is intertwined with our own, and celebrating the heroes of tomorrow as they take the field in Cleveland, Chicago, and Miami.
Our latest exhibit, an original art installation titled "Ali & Aaron: United in The Fight" explores the inspiring role both athletes played in the fight for civil rights, and encourages guests to examine their own convictions and beliefs. Read how this poignant project came to life.
Like the fictitious Forrest Gump, who witnessed many defining moments of the 20th Century by fate or luck, one Slugger guy found himself in the middle of many iconic baseball moments of the century.
