LWC students visit the Louisville Slugger Museum
By Sabine Eastham
On Wednesday, October 23, 2019, Lindsey Wilson College students from the International Student Programs, the Intercultural Communication Course and the English as a Second Language Course went on a field trip to Louisville thanks to a Jackaline Baldwin Dunlap Horizon Grant. The grant provided $920.00 to fund a visit by 25 students to the Louisville Slugger baseball bat museum and factory in Louisville, KY.
"Baseball is a fundamental of American culture and a game played around the world, especially in Latin America and Asia", said Dan Koger, Associate Professor of Communication. It didn't matter if you are a Toronto Blue Jays fan, California Angels or New York Yankee, the history of baseball, as shown at the Slugger Museum, brings to life changes in American culture, race relations and international relations over the past nearly 200 years. Babe Ruth, Mark McGwire, Mickey Mantle, Walter Young, Alex Rodriguez, Jon Rauch, Joe DiMaggio, the list goes on and on and history became alive during the well-guided tour.
The visit to the museum was followed by lunch at Havana Rumba, a Cuban restaurant in Louisville, where everyone, but American students especially, had a chance to experience food and music from a culture very different from their own.
The purpose of the Horizons Program is to provide incentives and financial support for classes, academic organizations, and individual students at LWC to develop a broader world view through study-related field work and travel.
