LOUISVILLE, Ky. — The Louisville Slugger factory has closed, along with the museum, and most of the staff has been furloughed.
Hillerich and Bradsby, the parent company, furloughed 171 people. The CEO said they have cut advertising and expenses, and they hope to get back to normal as soon as possible.
The employees on furlough will still receive benefits, and those who have not been furloughed will take a 25 percent pay cut.
