Documentary showcases Louisville Slugger

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- A Louisville icon is being celebrated in a new documentary that explores all things American.

The American Made Movie national economic bus tour made several stops in Louisville on Tuesday, including a stop at the Louisville Slugger.

The documentary explores the economic importance of American manufacturing. The Louisville Slugger is used as an example.

"Within the film we had the opportunity to work with Louisville Slugger to really see just how many people it takes to make something like a baseball bat," said the documentary's director Nathniel McGill, "From the trees in New York, the workers in the mill, down to all the hands in the factory right into the player's hands."

A free public screening of the movie will take place on Tuesday night at 6 at the Kentucky Center.
