MILWAUKEE (AP) -- The Louisville Slugger Museum & Factory is bringing its traveling exhibit to Miller Park.

The exhibit will feature Hank Aaron's 700th home run bat and fans can hold bats used by Robin Yount, Paul Molitor, Geoff Jenkins and Rickie Weeks.

There will also be a demonstration that shows the old way of carving bats by hand, with the same tools that date back to the 1800s.

Since the Brewers are hosting Pittsburgh, the exhibit will also feature Roberto Clemente's U1 model ash bat that he used in 1969 and 1970.

The interactive experience will be at Miller Park over Memorial Day weekend as the Brewers take on the Pittsburgh Pirates.

Louisville Slugger Museum & Factory is located in downtown Louisville, Ky.
