In the 1950’s when the interstate was developed many roadside attractions were abandoned and left to be forgotten. However, if you are like me, you haven’t forgotten them – instead you crave them. To me they symbolize a break from the fast pace life of the interstate – an era of joy, adventure and freedom. They offer an opportunity to search out new towns and cities – an excuse to take a different road or turn down that path that you wouldn’t otherwise take. Join with me today as we discover one of my favorites – the #worldslargest baseball bat in Louisville, Kentucky.
On my latest trip to Louisville, Kentucky I excitedly searched out the worlds largest bat – which sits propped up against the Louisville Slugger Museum. This bat, which reaches 120 feet tall and weighs 68,000 pounds, is an exact replica of Babe Ruth’s 34″ Louisville Slugger. Because of it’s size and the placement between buildings, it is hard to capture in a single frame photograph. However, believe me – it is a spectacular sight.
