Louisville Slugger Museum & Factory hits the road with an interactive baseball experience created exclusively for Detroit baseball fans attending the 24th annual TigerFest at Comerica Park on Saturday, January 26th.
The interactive “Mobile Museum” features game-used bats and other authentic memorabilia from Detroit Tigers legends. Other highlights include free museum passes and fun family photo opportunities with the museum’s giant five-foot bat and oversized glove. In addition, there will be bat-making demonstrations where the museum showcases the “old-fashioned” way of making a bat by hand.
There will also be signature rubbing boards so fans can make their own souvenir rubbing from the branded signatures of Detroit’s greatest players. It’s a mobile museum version of Louisville Slugger Museum & Factory’s esteemed Signature Wall.
“We are very excited to come back to TigerFest. Detroit baseball fans share the same passion for baseball as we do at Louisville Slugger Museum & Factory,” said Anne Jewell, Vice President and Executive Director of Louisville Slugger Museum & Factory. “Detroit is one of our attraction’s top markets, so we’re delighted to come here with historic items highlighting the Tigers. Our exhibit will be a treat for all generations of the franchise,” she said.
Fans attending the upcoming TigerFest will have the opportunity to win great one-of-a-kind items like a personalized Louisville Slugger baseball bat, and a souvenir Ty Cobb collectible bats.
Fans Can “Hold a Piece of History”
The interactive exhibit allows fans to “Hold a Piece of History,” with the rare opportunity to actually hold game-used bats from Detroit’s greatest players including Hall of Famers Charlie Gehringer, Ivan Rodriguez and Alan Trammell. Game-used bats from fan favorites JD Martinez, Willie Horton, Lou Whitaker and Cecil Fielder will also be on display, along with an authentic Sparky Anderson jersey.
