Spend Father's Day at Louisville Slugger Museum & Factory! On Sunday, June 17th, the downtown attraction is offering free admission and specially branded mini-bats to all fathers as a heartfelt “thank you” to these awesome fellas.

“Father’s Day is special because so many of us gained our love for baseball from our fathers or grandfathers,” said Anne Jewell, VP and Executive Director of Louisville Slugger Museum & Factory. “It’s a treat for us to tip our caps and say ‘thank you’ for that and so much more this Father’s Day. From the Griffeys to the Ripkens, Hillerich & Bradsby Co. has a long history with special father-son relationships, and annual Father-Daughter Days at the ballparks also provide those lifelong baseball bonds,” she said.

Included in the free admission is entrance to the museum’s latest exhibit, “Legends Never Die!” The Sandlot Celebrates 25 Years. As part of the 25th Anniversary of its theatrical release, the hit movie teamed-up with Louisville Slugger Museum & Factory for a mini-exhibit showcasing authentic props from the movie, artwork, and behind-the-scenes photography. Memorable movie items are featured including:

  - The sacred Babe Ruth baseball that must be retrieved from The Beast

  - Squints’ iconic eyeglasses

  - Louisville Slugger bats swung by the team

  - The Wheaties box periscope from the gang’s treehouse

  - Baseball items from Mr. Mertle’s home

In addition to free admission and exclusive Father’s Day mini-bats, the Museum Store is also selling special-edition full-sized Father’s Day bats for just $69.99. The specially branded mini-bats can be purchased for $7.99. Louisville Slugger Museum & Factory will be open Father’s Day, Sunday, June 17th from 11:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m. EST.
