Sculpture (50)

The Spirit of Baseball

Made from Indiana limestone and inspired by the art deco look of Union Terminal, this relief depicts the romance of the game with the Cincinnati riverfront as a background and four characters in the forefront. Three of the characters - a catcher, a batter and a fielder - are in the clouds, and a child dressed in a uniform with a bat is on the ground. The actual look of the relief varies, as sunlight and artificial lighting allow shadows to alter the look of the sculpture throughout the day. Designed by Mark Riedy.
