Ballpark Statuary

One week into the baseball season.

Last Monday, went down to Washington D.C. for the Phillies' first game.

Most ballparks have statues of their team's legends.  Nationals Park, bereft of legends, has a series of "Washington D.C." baseball heroes.

Sculpted by Omri Amrany, they attempt to capture motion in a still three dimension space.

Their initial impact is kind of monstrous.

Quickly, they become highly rewarding.  Although the Nationals will be cursed as long as they keep Teddy Roosevelt from winning the President's race -the fans are at least rewarded with these statues to greet them.
