Upon our arrival at the museum we were given our family Wonder, What is a billet? Our family learned that a billet is the round pieces of wood that are made into a bat. One highlight for our family at the museum and factory was seeing and touching the billets waiting to be made into a bats for Joey Votto (1st baseman for our hometown team, The Cincinnati Reds).
The other highlight of the trip for my husband was going into the vault to see carved bat prototypes of famous players such as Hank Aaron and Babe Ruth (The Great Bambino).
Below is a Smilebox of some of the pictures taken of all the Wonder Leads and their families while at the Louisville Slugger Museum and Factory.
