An Integral Part of Our Own Story

Black Ballplayers

Black ballplayers have played a tremendous role in building Louisville Slugger into the iconic brand you know today. H&B is grateful to the thousands of black ballplayers we’ve worked with for generations; a vital force behind our business. We’re proud to honor them every day, incorporating these stories into prominent experiences, including: 

Lifelike sculptures of some of baseball’s best, including Jackie Robinson, Ken Griffey Jr., and Derek Jeter.

Hank Aaron’s 700th home run bat, which is displayed with a specific death threat he received as he worked toward breaking the record set by Babe Ruth. 

Game-used bats from greats like Willie Mays, Hank Aaron, and Ken Griffey Jr. in our "Hold a Piece of History" exhibit.

A permanent display about the Louisville Unions, a local pre-Negro Leagues team.

Walk of Fame plaques located along Main Street that honor many Negro League and Major League greats, such as Josh Gibson, James “Cool Papa” Bell, Jackie Robinson, Hank Aaron, Joe Morgan, and more.

The Best Slugging Catcher in History

Johnny Bench Artifacts

Three artifacts from the greatest slugging catcher of all time make up this impressive display!

Marvel at the bat Johnny Bench swung to hit his last of 389 career home runs on September 17, 1983. See the commemorative bat from Bench’s incredible 1968 All-Star Game – his first of 14 appearances in the Midsummer Classic. Notably, the Gold Glove on display is the fifth Bench earned in his career; awarded for his defensive performance in the 1972 season.
