A Splendid Twig. The world’s “largest baseball bat”—120 feet tall and 68,000 pounds—helps make the Louisville Slugger Museum & Factory a can’t-miss destination in downtown Louisville. Opened in July 1996, this is more than a museum. Legendary Hillerich & Bradsby Co. baseball bats are still manufactured here. (Louisville Slugger Museum & Factory)
