Minneapolis' new baseball park, Target Field, sports a life size bronze statue of Calvin. I've never seen it because I've never been back to Minneapolis. Last summer, son, Zonnie was there and took these pictures. I tried to post them before but being a clumsy tech, it was a no-go.
The likeness of Calvin by sculptor Bill Mack, is amazing. Calvin would be immensely thrilled to see his beloved team play out in the open air again, where baseball was meant to be played. Calvin was a walking baseball encyclopedia. Oh how I miss his baseball stories of times past. He was bat boy for his Father's team, the Washington Senators and told fabulous stories of "The Babe ," Ty Cobb, Walter Johnson, Honus Wagner, and Christy Mathewson. After Calvin inherited the team he took it to Minnesota and changed the name to the "Minnesota Twins," because Saint Paul and Minneapolis are known as the "Twin Cities."
Although Calvin will never visit this ball park in person, he will keep vigil over it always. Hey, Dear Husband, I got two words, "Play Ball."
P.S. I love you
