Project H&B ID: Putting Names with the Faces of Hillerich & Bradsby Co.
Dates: September 27 – November 1, 2019
Events: Opening Reception September 29, 3:00 – 6:00 pm
Their names are unknown for now, but they helped build a worldwide icon and a new mission is underway to learn who they
are. From September 27th through November 1st, a photo exhibit of former factory workers entitled, “Project H&B ID:
Putting Names with the Faces of Hillerich & Bradsby Co.” will be on display at Louisville Slugger Museum & Factory.
This special exhibit features 25 photographs dating back to the 1930s that all feature H&B workers whose names
have been lost through the years.
The photographs will immerse guests in the storied history of H&B, and life within the factory. This is the first time the
museum has presented these photos as a collection. They will be displayed in the public lobby of Louisville Slugger Museum
& Factory, so there is no charge to view them. From the candid to the portrait-esque, each photo tells the story of the hands,
the faces, the people who have contributed to the company’s success.
Guests can engage with the photos by identifying the pictured individuals using #ProjectHB and tagging the museum on
Facebook, Instagram or Twitter. In addition to social media, the public can participate by calling 502.588.7215 or emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
