We stopped in Louisville on our way to Durham for PA school.  We made it there really late at night and didnt get too much sleep.  The plan was just to get up and finish the trip so we could make it to Durham at a good time to unload some stuff into our house.  I knew the Louisville slugger museum was there and I didnt want to leave without checking it out.  So we spent a few hours there before taking off to Durham.  The museum was awesome.  You could watch people make bats from the window or you could take a tour and see the whole process.  Plus you can order a bat with your favorite team logo on it and they can laser etch your name onto the bat like the pros.  I had to do that and am glad I did.  I also enjoyed the batting cages.  You could choose the bat with the exact dimensions that the professional players bat with, like Ken Griffey Jr, Alex Rodriguez, and Manny Ramirez.  The list was pretty long.  I went with the Ken Griffey Jr. since he was one of my favorites growing up.  It has been a few years since I have hit a ball especially a baseball so it took a couple of pitches before I found my rhythm.  My dad probably swung at 30 pitches and maybe fouled off 12 of them before he felt like he hurt himself.  It was hilarious to watch him swing and miss at that many pitches.  My wife sad I was being rude for laughing at him because it was a little embarrassing watching a grown man miss that many pitches.  He hadn't swung a bat in probably 15 years so it was understandable, but seeing his face realize how bad he had become was priceless.  Louisville was a cool city I hope to visit again.  The river that ran through the middle of town made it cool because there were bridges everywhere.
