While this isn’t anywhere near the world’s largest baseball bat (that would be the 120 foot-tall version at the Louisville Slugger Museum & Factory, a Kentucky roadside attraction) it’s still a modestly sized big thing that makes for fun vacation selfies.

The big bat is positioned in front of the Casey softball museum, complete with a batter’s box and cutout of a catcher and umpire for a full photo experience.
