The above coordinates will bring you to the entrance of the world famous Hillerich & Bradsby Louisville Slugger bat factory and museum on Main Street in (where else?) Louisville, KY. This is a two-stop multi cache. The final cache is contained in a Saccharomyces cerevisiae container about a block away from the first stop.
If you're a baseball fan or, perhaps, a wood working fan, you may want to fork over some filthy lucre and check out the museum and tour the bat factory.
For information about the museum go to www.sluggermuseum.org.
To learn the coordinates for the final cache do the math.
For ABC add 315 to the length of the bat in feet.
For DEF add 895 to the date of the month on which the bat was installed.
Final coordinates are 38º 15.ABC 85º 45.DEF
A few rods from the final cache site you will find a bronze plaque, set on a concrete pedestal near the sidewalk, that you may find interesting.
Please be sure that the container's cap is snuggly seated before you replace cache.
