Very interesting! Many people there so lines were kind of long. Get a free baseball bat, too. Kids liked it as well.

Very interesting tour & informative, plus they were making bats for Derek Jeter that day. We were able to see all the steps for making the bats, types of wood, machinery, process for engraving logos, etc.

Watch the bats being made--see interactive displays and watch an informative movie. I went with a group of first graders and they loved it. Everyone gets a souvenir mini bat at the end of the tour.
