WASHINGTON, D.C. — I always though that statues of D.C. baseball legends was a must-have for the Nationals permanent home and I am pleased that they are now installed at the Centerfield entrance area. I was kind of skeptical of how they were going to turn out after I read Nats320’s interviews with the sculptor. Now that I have seen them, that reaction was justified — they are a big “meh.” I like that they are there and I like that Walter Johnson, Josh Gibson and Frank Howard were selected as each represented a specific Washington team. However, I would like the statues just as much if they were “frozen in time” rather than having the motion effect.
