Harry Caray – Sports Commission Bronze Statue

Harry Caray, a Chicago legend, stands 12-feet tall in white bronze atop a granite base. The man who infamously coined the term ‘Holy Cow!’ stands in and amongst loyal Chicago Cubs fans and Wrigley Field all in white bronze. After 5 drawings and many negotiations, a decision was made to create Harry Caray as the beloved grandfather of Baseball in Chicago for what he was. This sculpture is named ‘And a one, and a two.. and a three…’ conveying his love for the fans and the game of baseball.

 

“I think he looks like he’s getting ready to sing ‘Take Me Out To the Ball Game’; the sculptor did a great job.” –Dutchie Caray.

 

 

“The structure is as much symbolic as it is realistic.” –The Chicago Vineline
