Clay model lays the foundation for the baseball legend’s statue

HOT SPRINGS-Majestic Park is one step closer to having an 8-foot-tall statue of baseball legend Babe Ruth at the entrance. A clay model of what will be a bronze statue when it is finished was unveiled on September 27 at the Hot Springs Convention Center.

Donors and friends of Majestic Park gathered in the lobby of Horner Hall to be the first to preview what the final sculpture will look like.

According to a press release from Visit Hot Springs, the statue shows “Ruth in the New York Yankees uniform just after he swung the bat and watched another home race sail towards the outfield fence.”

Artist Chad Fisher was present for the preview and talked about how he has worked closely with Babe Ruth historian Bill Jenkinson for accuracy on the project.

The five-field Majestic Park complex is scheduled to be completed in 2022 and built on the site of the former Hot Springs Boys and Girls Club, formerly one of baseball’s first spring training sites.
