Batter Up

museum

Today we went to Louisville Slugger Bat Factory & Museum.  Here’s the 120 foot bat outside the building.

Somebody needs to tell Babe, ‘Don’t play ball inside’.

We were given the opportunity to hold one of Mickey Mantle’s “Game Used” bats.  For a baseball fan this is almost church.

Unfortunately for us, we had to give it back.  Man, those little Louisville Slugger workers are fast….

    That is so cool. When you come to PA, you need to visit the Little League Museum in Williamsport, PA. The even have batting cages you can use in the basement & a great view of thr LL stadium.

    Wow!!!! We worshipped with you last night in Louisville. What an awesome experience. You truly blessed my life. I admire all of you for sacrificing being at home and with your family each day to witness your love and dedication to serving Jesus Christ. AND to help all of us to be lifted up as we live life in the fast lane. May God richly bless each of you.

    My husband and our friends were able to see you in Lou. at Valley View Church. It was a great experience! We also went to Third Day’s Concert about a month ago and my husband and I both agreed that we enjoyed the smaller atmosphere you provided much more. Thanks for keeping us in the spirit of Christ!
