Louisville, Ky., is known for fast horses and baseball bats, thanks to champions like Secretariat and the Louisville Slugger brand. In 2004, the celebrated bat manufacturer Louisville Slugger collaborated Big Red’s owner, Penny Chenery, collaborated in a joint venture linking these two great American traditions.
In the fall of that year, a series of custom-made Secretariat Louisville Slugger Baseball Bats were produced to honor the 1973 Triple Crown champion. The regulation 34-inch length bats were made in the traditional manner of most Louisville Slugger bats with a natural ash finish and the distinctive Slugger logo in black lettering. However, the Secretariat edition bats featured Secretariat’s lifespan, career earnings and silhouetted image etched into the barrel.
