The Louisville Slugger Museum unveiled a new statue today of baseball legend, Jackie Robinson. I’m sure you’re surprised by the photo above. I certainly was when I first saw Mr. Robinson.
When you think “statue,” you probably think of concrete or bronze. Instead, the statue resembles a wax figure. The purpose is to make it as life-like as possible, from the textures of his clothes to the type of bat he swung. However, it’s kind of creepy from afar.
But I must say, the close-up is actually kind of cool.
So what do you think Big Blue Nation?
