    Louisville Slugger Field

    I quickly searched for some info on this in the Forum and the two posts I found were several years old so I felt I could bring this up again.

    I was at Slugger Field last week and they have a list of rules posted as you enter the concourse. "NO Firearms" is one among them. I chalked this up to private ownership and left it at that. Then this weekend I was speaking with someone who works for Metro Government and he mentioned that the City actually owned the property and Stadium. That slightly confused me so I've been hunting for more info.

    Turns out the city leases the field.

    So, as a lessee does the Louisville Baseball Club have the authority to ban firearms? Or since it it publicly owned property can I follow up with the government about why they have they ban in place?

    I would be willing to start writing, calling, emailing, showing up in person, etc. But I would like to make sure I have an argument here first.

    Should have pulled this out....

    Do they think a sign is going to change a madman's mind..."Oh shucks, they got a sign."

    Still carried inside and when we left it was dark... Ran into several "Beggers" in the parking lot and just said "No" Kind of off topic but I've seen more and more of this the last few years....
