There’s really nothing more American than baseball, is there? The sprawling field, the cheering fans, the national anthem—hot dogs. It’s a pastime we’ve cherished for over a hundred years. And what better way to celebrate such a storied tradition than with bronze, a medium that knows a thing or two about standing the test of time.
As our passion for the sport has grown, so too has the desire for bronze statues to commemorate the lives and careers of some of Baseball’s greatest figures.
Recently, the NY Times took note of our burgeoning interest in honoring MLB’s finest, and created a photo reel of some of the more prominent statues taking up residence in parks across the nation. Check them out here.
