Louisville Slugger Field

Louisville, KY

Louisville Slugger Field is the home of the Louisville Bats of Triple-A East. The Bats are the Class AAA affiliate of the Cincinnati Reds.
 

Talk about getting it right! The folks in Louisville hit every mark with Louisville Slugger Field. First, the ballpark itself. It's built in the standard modern design; seating bowl below concourse, upper level above that. Being AAA, everything is a little bit bigger and the upper deck actually has seating for regular folks, not just the luxury box crowd.


I really like minor league parks with an upper deck like this one. You get the birds-eye view while still being really close to the action. It's even better in Louisville because the view beyond the fence is excellent.

The Ohio River runs past the park out there and while you can't see the river, you can see all of the steel girder bridges that cross it. It makes for a very striking visual.


The ballpark features that wrap-around concourse I like, allowing fans to circle the ballpark when the 'ole legs need stretching. The food was good, too!
 

When the game is over, you will discover that you are a short walk from downtown Louisville, which features some lively nightlife on a Saturday night.
The park is built up against an old train shed along the first base line and this makes for a rather grand entrance and is the final piece in a wonderfully assembled puzzle.

 

Well done, Louisville!

"I remember that we LOVED the logo so much, we bought hats. I also recall walking around Louisville, seeing the Bat Factory (baseball bats) and touring Churchill Downs. That was a great day."
