The latest pitch from Louisville Slugger Museum & Factory is Collection Curveballs, a round-up of surprising curiosities and classics from the attraction’s impressive archives. With a rich company history dating back to 1884 that spans a variety of sports, pop culture, and artistic treasures, the show includes unforgettable and unexpected items, some never shown publicly before now.

“Collection Curveballs has something fun for everyone, from sports fans to pop culture mavens, to lovers of fine art, music, and history,” said Bailey Mazik, Curatorial Director. “Over the years we’ve looked for ways to broaden the experience of baseball for our guests and a lot of those efforts are showcased in Collection Curveballs. Given the span of time and topics, the exhibit is a wonderful chance for generations to connect and make memories together.”

Collection Curveballs will be on display through the end of the year and is included with regular admission.
