University of Louisville's baseball team is excited to announce its plans to host the sixth annual Louisville Baseball Elementary School Day! This fun-filled, educational experience has become a highlight of the spring calendar and head baseball coach Dan McDonnell and the Cardinals are excited to extend an invitation to all Louisville area schools.
