The World Series begins Tuesday and it’s the first time in 71 years that Louisville Slugger is making World Series bats for the Chicago Cubs. Louisville Slugger Factory has made bats for every World Series, including the first one in 1903.

I visited the factory to get a peek of some of the players bats. Listen to the audio in the player above.
