The Big Bat is the world's largest baseball bat. Made of steel, it weighs 68,000 pounds and towers 120 feet into the sky. The Big Bat is an exact-scale replica of Babe Ruth's 34-inch Louisville Slugger bat.

What’s the scoop on The Big Glove? Climb on, crawl through, slide down! Discover our giant, prehistoric ball glove. Handcrafted from 450-million-year-old Kentucky limestone, our 17-ton sculpture is entitled "Play Ball."
