The Louisville Slugger Museum and Factory says it is celebrating a record number of visitors.

In a statement, museum officials said 314,149 people visited the museum and factory in 2015. That number eclipsed the former record of 303,037 guests in 2013.

Vice President Anne Jewell said it's exciting to have such momentum going into 2016, when the museum celebrates its 20th anniversary.

The statement said several factors contributed to the high attendance including a popular exhibit of trading cards and longer summer hours.
