It’s time for the three Bs: brats, beer, and baseball. This summer’s season is packed full of games and events. From fun initiatives like Copa de la Diversión to drink deals, the summer is just heating up for the Clippers.

About the team

Around here, we root for the Louisville Bats, the Triple-A affiliate of the Cincinnati Reds. What’s in a name? The Bats have taken on many names — originally known as the Louisville Redbirds in 1982, they rebranded as the Louisville RiverBats in 1999 before taking their final form as the Bats in 2002.

Nowadays the Bats play at the Louisville Slugger Field, located in the heart of downtown.
