World’s Biggest Bat

The Louisville Slugger Museum and Factory brought history to Miller Park during the Milwaukee Brewers most recent homestand. Among the items on display was The World’s Biggest Bat, which is being held by Cynthia Preston and Lawrence Winfrey. Also on display was Hank Aaron’s 700th home run bat that the homerun king used on July 21, 1973. This A99 model ash bat is 35-inches and 32-ounces, ans is one of the significant teasures in the Louisville Slugger Museum and Factory collection. The bat is also signed by Aaron. Other pieces of baseball history were bats used by Brewers legends Robin Yount, Paul Molitor, Geoff Jenkins and Rickie Weeks. There were also bat making demonstrations and a replica of Miller Park made with LEGO® Bricks. (Photos by Yvonne Kemp)
