Alabama Statues Featuring Hank Aaron and Other Hall of Fame | Entertainment

Mobile, Alabama (AP) — Statues of Hank Aaron and other members of the Baseball Hall of Fame from Mobile are planned as part of a courtyard celebrating the city’s baseball heritage.

The Hall of Fame courtyard aims to attract more people to the mobile riverfront, Al.com reported.

On Friday, the interview is set to begin with a team of five artists or artists competing to create a statue. Submissions of their work will be published on the Mobile Arts Council this week. The 13 statue selection committee may select the winning artists within a few weeks.

The goal is to complete the first statue by the end of 2022 and display it in downtown Mobile, said Matt Anderson, director of mobile civil and cultural affairs. Others will be delivered in 2023, Anderson said.

Aaron, who played for Atlanta and Milwaukee, died on January 22 at the age of 86. The courtyard also includes other local Halls of Fame in the city, such as Willie McCovey, Satchel Paige, Billy Williams, and Ozzie Smith.

Also on display is Robert Brazile Jr., the only local member of the city to be inducted into the National Football League Hall of Fame in Canton, Ohio.
