Detroit Tigers Hall of Fame

Detroit Tigers Hall of Fame – Sports Commission Statues

Six larger than life stainless steel cast icons. A sculpting montage that represents a timeline in baseball history, located in the heart of downtown Detroit. On the left field wall of Comerica Park, home to the Detroit Tigers, are Al Kaline, Hal Newhouser, Charlie Gehringer, Hank Greenberg, Ty Cobb and Willie Horton. These Detroit legends stand in a range of 11-13 feet tall including the granite bases they are set on. Caught in action, these sportsmen convey the energy of tightened springs released in motion.

 

“If you look at the stadium as a large crown, the sculptures will be like the diamonds on the crown…” Detroit Jewish News

 

“It’s Great!” – Al Kaline

 

“The image is overpowering…Chilling. Surreal. I manage to exhale as I step out of the way.”-USA Today

 

“…as a frequesnt visitor to Comerica, the statues add a touch of history and class that truly distinguishes the park as one that stays connected to the traditions of baseball – and its heroes.” – Heath J Meriwether – Detroit Free Press
