Louisville Slugger :: The End of an Era

Today marks the end of an era. After 130 years, Louisville Slugger passes the baton from the Hillerich & Bradsby family to Wilson Sporting Goods.  

While I only spent 3 years as part of the Slugger family, I wouldn't be who I am and where I am today without them. (Sorry, gonna get all sappy on you now.... )

While it was my husband who brought me to Louisville, it was Louisville Slugger that welcomed me and supported us as we started our life together as a married couple in Kentucky. 

It was Louisville Slugger that provided me with the experience to travel around the world to China, Indonesia, and The Dominican Republic. Without travel, I would still be out of touch with my childhood best friend.

It was Louisville Slugger that unleashed my creative side (masked by my love for math and science) and opened the door to photography. Without photography, there would be no www.TamelaTriplett.com

It was Louisville Slugger that supported my interest in attending a Sports Photography Workshop. Without opportunities, I could only dream of having an assignment with Sports Illustrated or NCAA March Madness

The list can go on and on... But what can't be forgotten, is with every end is a new beginning. When one door closes, another is opened. I am thrilled to explore my next chapter - and also witness the next chapter of one of the most iconic brands in America, Louisville Slugger. 

Here are a few photographs to enjoy while reminiscing of my memories and my photography work at Louisville Slugger.
