Now through September 2, the Louisville Slugger Museum & Factory is home to 222,180 LEGO bricks in the shape of ballparks, sculptures of baseball players, and portraits of superstars.
"We feel like it's a merging between two great traditions that have blossomed over the years, not just survived but thrived over the years: LEGO and baseball," Anne Jewell, executive director of the museum, says. "Baseball is a fun game. LEGO is fun. So to interpret this national pastime with these beloved LEGO bricks is what we call this great double play together."
