Louisville Slugger Field
Take your group on an iconic behind-the-scenes tour of the Louisville Slugger Field, home of the Louisville Bats (fitting team name, right?).
Before or after your visit to the Louisville Slugger Museum and Factory you simply MUST come to explore the stadium, whether you are coming on a game day or you are just coming for a tour during the spring/summer season when the team is away. You're behind the scenes tour will begin at the Hall of Fame Pavilion and then take you through such key sites as the luxury suite, press box, operations room, locker room, and dugout. Not only will you have the opportunity to see all these features, but you will also be getting a historic look at local and nationwide baseball in general.
There will be no tours December-March, and you must call ahead for available dates to tour September- November. The tours last about 40 minutes and are only available for groups of over 20.
Here is a bit of general history and info before your visit:
- This stadium was built in 1998 and opened in 2000.
- The first game took place on April 12, 2000, against the Norfolk Tides.
- The 'front door' of the field is made up of a historic rail freight depot, incorporating local history and culture.
- There are 13,000 seats at the stadium.
- This field sits within a block of the Louisville Waterfront Park on the riverbank, providing plenty of nearby dining options.
