Last Sunday, actress Jennifer Lawrence won an Oscar for Best Actress for her performance in the box office hit Silver Linings Playbook. She also won a Golden Globe and a Screen Actors Guild Award for her role in the movie.
Lawrence, a Louisville native and noted Louisville Cardinals fan, is set to receive yet another golden trophy to commemorate her recent achievements.
The famed Louisville Slugger Museum and Factory has decided to honor the 22-year-old by creating a custom gold bat with her name on it which includes the message, "LOUISVILLE'S SLUGGER IN HOLLYWOOD...YOUR HOMETOWN IS SO PROUD OF YOU!"
Louisville Slugger said they originally came up with the idea after she won two of the major awards, but waited until after she won the Oscar to ensure they didn't jinx Lawrence's award bid.
How will Lawrence be presented with this golden-clad bat of greatness?
The company says it intends on mailing the bat to Lawrence's family.
Congrats to our hometown girl, Jennifer Lawrence, on winning her first Oscar! Check out the gold bat we made her: twitter.com/sluggernation/…
