Phil and I traveled to Elizabethtown, Kentucky this weekend to attend the auction of the Schmidt
After our meetings, they took us on a tour of the museum and factory. Since Phil and I are both big baseball fans, this was a special treat. The highlight of the visit was a trip to the "bat vault." It dated from the days when all bats were still made by hand. The Louisville Slugger factory kept a model of each players bats as a reference copy so they would have an example of the exact dimensions of the bat. We were able to see Ted Williams, Hank Aaron and Jackie Robinson's sample bats. Each player really had vastly different approaches to their bat. In the photo to the left, Nathan is showing Phil the sample of the largest bat Major League Baseball would allow.
If we move forward with and exhibit, we will make sure to let you know on this page.
