Each season the Louisville Bats play 72 home games at Louisville Slugger Field. For everyone it isn't possible to attend all of them because of other obligations and we understand that.
As we sit in the office we want to think of warm thoughts and that involves baseball that will begin here at LSF very soon. Pitchers and catchers have already reported, so baseball will be here before you know it. Here are the 15 can't-miss dates for the 2015 season, all of them involving a great promotion.
