Where the Bulls Are — Louisville Slugger Field

View Larger Map

Ballpark reviews comments.

Traditionally the Louisville Bat have the highest average attendance of any team in the International League. This year they are running slightly behind the new parks in Columbus and Allentown (Lehigh Valley) averaging 8,600 fans per game (the Bulls are averaging 6,300 per game so far).

The Bats currently have a 9½ game lead in the West Division with a 51-39 record, exactly the same record as the Durham Bulls. We took 3 out of 4 in our series back in May, but it’s likely they’ve had a bunch of roster changes.

Their manager, Rick Sweet, managed the International League All-Star team and the Bats had two players, pitcher Justin Lehr and outfielder Drew Stubbs, on the team.

Update - 3:57 pm: Tonight's game at 7:05. Jason Cromer pitching. Ruggiano's hand is bruised, not broken, so decision to play will be based on how he feels during batting practice. Good news!!
