Baseball season is here!

Spring means baseball, and what better way to enjoy a warm night than at the Louisville Bats game?  

The Bats got their start in Louisville in 1982, when the St. Louis Cardinals moved their Triple A affiliate team, the Redbirds, to Louisville.   Games were originally played at Cardinal Stadium.  In 1998, the team became affiliated with the Milwaukee Brewers and were renamed the RiverBats.  The next year, the team moved their games to the new Slugger Field downtown, which can seat 13,131 people.  In 2000, the team became affiliated with their current team, the Cincinnati Reds.  And in 2002, the team was rebranded as the Louisville Bats that we know today.

Louisville Bats games are tons of fun for the whole family.  They can accommodate group outings and birthday parties, and they also have a great Kids Club package.  For just $25, kids 12 and under receive admission to all Sunday home games, a kids jersey, a cooler, plus 2 free attraction vouchers.  And, every Sunday, there is an inflatable fun zone, and kids eat free! It's an amazing deal and more than pays for the cost of joining, even if you can't make all of the Sunday games.   

Their next game is tonight, Wed April 12th, at 6:35pm against the Toledo Mud Hens. Check out their full schedule here.  And don't forget to check out all of the fantastic lofts, condos, and homes for sale while you're downtown!

Plan a night out at Locked In

Escape games have become increasingly popular in recent months - you may have seen your friends post pictures on Facebook or Instagram, indicating if they were able to "escape" or not.  If you're looking for an indoor activity to occupy your time during these cold winter days, plan a night out at Locked In!  Fun for a girls, guys, or couples night out, Locked In can accommodate 2-8 people per adventure.  

There's an adventure for all skill levels - starting from easiest to most challenging:  The Warehouse, The Museum, The Laboratory, or The Classroom.  Once your adventure is selected, your group will be "locked" in the appropriate room and be asked to figure out clues and puzzles in order to escape within 60 minutes.   Winners get bragging rights - but if for some reason you can't escape, you'll surely want to try it again soon!  This is also a great place for a corporate event or team building exercise.

Locked In is located at 521 S 4th Street.  Reservations need to be made in advance, and the cost is $27 per person.  While you're downtown, take a look at some of the great properties that are for sale in the 40202 zip code.  Louisville has some of the best downtown living, with amazing condos overlooking the Ohio River that are walking distance to all the restaurants, museums, and entertainment that downtown has to offer. One of our agents will be glad to schedule showings for any houses or condos you may want to see before your night out at Locked In.
