Louisville Slugger®

The 134-year history of Louisville Slugger all started with a 17-year-old playing hooky from work and choosing baseball over butter. An apprentice in his father’s woodworking shop, John A. “Bud” Hillerich headed out one spring afternoon to take in a Louisville Eclipse game, the city’s major league team. After seeing Eclipse superstar Pete Browning break his bat that day, Hillerich offered to make the slumping slugger a new bat at his father’s shop. But no matter how the game changes, Louisville Slugger carries the same sentiment Bud Hillerich felt in 1884 when he chose baseball over butter churns. Creating the best baseball bats in the world to help ball players take their game to the next level.
