    How many people take trips to Louisville and how many times a year do you go?

    I've only had one trip to Louisville in my life. But, I remember getting off the plane at the airport and hearing all of these sweet southern ladies voices. Man, I was in love.

    Anyway, I just haven't had more than the one opportunity. Wish I had more, as I'd love to see some REDS' AAA baseball there.

    I take at least two trips every year. I love their ballpark. Cincinnati is surrounded by some of the best minor league ballparks in the country.

    I see the Bats somewhere between 25-50 games a year, depending on time and other commitments. (A baby and wife have really curtailled my time watching ballgames, oddly. Don't know how that happens.)

    I go as much as I can. Though last year I spent a lot of time watching them online instead of at the park. Hoping to see the team in person more this season.

    I live in Louisville now and get free tickets from my company. So I try to go regularly, though not anything near every game or anything.

    Good park to watch a game.

    Championships for MY teams in my lifetime:
    Cincinnati Reds - 75, 76, 90
    Chicago Blackhawks - 10, 13
    University of Kentucky - 78, 96, 98, 12
    Cincinnati Bengals - None
    Chicago Bulls - 91, 92, 93, 96, 97, 98

    I plan on going to my first game there this summer. It looks like the Bats are going to have a lot of talent this year, too, particularly in the OF.

    I've also heard that Louisville, in general, is a really cool city with good nightlife.
    I may not be fast, but I sure am slow.

    We already bought tickets to three of the four Bats' games in Durham this year.

    Once or twice a year.

    Watch a lot of games through MILB.tv though.

    Never been, but I think we will make the trek south this year for the first time. I'm thinking a Bats game, nice dinner out, a trip to the Louisville Slugger museum and some shopping should make for a nice weekend trip with the wife and kid.

    I'd like to go, it's not that far from Nashville and the siren song of the bourbon trail is relentless in my ear.

    I see the Bats play about 20 times a year.
