Life-size portrait bronze sculpture of Eddie Stanky. Installed at Eddie Stanky Stadium, University of South Alabama, Mobile, AL. Dedicated 2005.
Eddie Stanky was the proverbial baseball player. From playing with the Pittsburg Pirates, Chicago Cubs, Brooklyn Dodgers and others, to coaching the University of South Alabama, he had the look, the stance and carriage of a baseball player. So much so, that in any photograph, if he was not dressed the part, you could tell his life revolved around baseball. That stance and carriage were the aspect of him that was most recognizable and what I tried to capture.
