From out of the shadows of The Big Bat, the ghouls and goblins at Louisville Slugger Museum & Factory are thrilled to announce the 4th annual Home Run Halloween, returning for another spine-tingling day of mischief and fun on Sunday, October 20th from 11 am – 5 pm.


No tricks about it. The day will be filled with an abundance of treats, including free admission for kids in costume. Additionally, kids can trick-or-treat inside the museum and factory. There will also be a number of other activities throughout the day including a costume contest, a booth to make fake blood from chocolate and mini-bat decorating.


This year also brings with it a spooktacular new, special-edition, glow-in-the-dark mini-bat which will be given to the first 800 kids. This supernatural bat features ‘Happy Halloween’ messaging and a jack-o-lantern baseball on a ghostly-white glow-finish. Full-sized personalized glow-in-the-dark bats will also be available at the museum store.


On display for another year is The World’s Largest Vampire Stake. The 8-foot-tall stake was crafted here at the factory and would make Van Helsing jealous. Vampires will shake in their capes at the sight of it, but guests can pose with this marvel for a delightfully frightful photo-op. The stake fits right in with the theme of big things at the museum. The downtown attraction is already the home of The Big Bat (the largest in the world at 120 feet tall) and a giant ball and glove sculpture carved from limestone.


“Our team is totally batty about Home Run Halloween,” said Anne Jewell, VP and Executive Director of Louisville Slugger Museum & Factory. “This howling good time has grown every year. Families can count on fun memories and fantastic photo-ops as we sink our teeth into this extra special event.”

Project H&B ID: putting names with the faces of Hillerich & Bradsby Co.

Their names are unknown for now, but they helped build a worldwide icon and a new mission is underway to learn who they are. From September 27th through November 1st, this photo exhibit of former factory workers will be on display. This special exhibit features 25 photographs dating back to the 1930s that all feature H&B workers whose names have been lost through the years.
