Named after the popular Louisville Slugger baseball bat, this field is home turf for the minor league baseball team the Louisville Bats. Even though you may not be a devoted follower of minor league ball, recent visitors assured you'll want to catch a game while in town, especially if you're traveling with kids: Aside from the clean facilities and reasonable prices, reviewers were particularly fond of the on-site carousel (which costs just $1 to ride) and playground.

Travelers also praised the reasonable ticket and concession prices. Plus, all spectators are permitted to bring in one plastic bottle of water per person, as long as it's a clear bottle and the seal has not been broken.

If you're interested in a behind-the-scenes look at the field and would like to learn more about baseball's role in the history of Louisville, consider taking a stadium tour; tours are offered Monday through Friday when the team is out of town and cost $1 per person.

Louisville Slugger Field is located in downtown Louisville, a little more than a mile east of the Louisville Slugger Museum & Factory. You'll find several pay parking lots surrounding the stadium, but if you're staying in downtown Louisville you can avoid the traffic headache and the extra fees by simply walking to the stadium (recent visitors said the area surrounding the stadium is safe). Game ticket prices vary depending on the day and opponent. For more information on tours and games, visit the Louisville Bats website.
