US and Canadian Baseball Statue Database

As Dag Wentim at SABR points out…“This is fantastic ... a group has put together a comprehensive list of every public baseball statue in the U.S. and Canada.”

Where statues depict multiple subjects, each subject is listed in a separate row of the table.

Dates are given in UK format i.e. day/month/year.

We have excluded non-subject-specific statues that are produced by sculptors for sale as large or unlimited editions, due both to their ubiquity and difficulty to track: for example Mark Lundeen’s ‘Casey at The Bat’ and Gary Price’s ‘The Natural’.

Unveiling dates refer to the unveiling of a statue in its original public location; where statues have subsequently been relocated this is noted on their specific page.

For individual statue page inscription transcriptions, any text in parentheses is part of the actual inscription; text in square brackets is comments or further information.

Cool, but it's missing the Derek Jeter one in the Bronx.

I'm impressed by how comprehensive they are. I mean, they aren't just doing the MLB stadium and museum ones, they've got the ones from Minor League stadiums, town parks, and graveyards and such too.

The fact that there are Geoff Blum and Jesse Barfield statues nearby makes me want to move back to the Chicago area.

Altobelli didn't surprise me at all, given his connection to Rochester.
The Blum, et al. one was disappointing.
Swish Nicholson in his hometown?

I was actually there the day they unveiled that statue. Don Zimmer showed up, Cal Ripken and Rick Dempsey sent in video tributes. The statue is a bit small though.

Apparently the Starting Lineup Fernando Valenzuela I glued to the wall outside my school in 1989 isn't there anymore.

Too bad, they don't have a listing for Ivan Rodriguez's statue of himself that he has in his back yard.
