Supporters of the Pony League pledged to commemorate the original field, enlisting sculptor Richard Stravitz to create a statue for the park. The etched brick pavers will be arranged in the shape of home plate around "Good Game" and are available for purchase.
"That ball field really was the center of what was a very interesting and vibrant community in Kempsville," Albero said. "We'd really like to surround the statue with all of those memories."
Richard Stravitz’s case in bronze, titled “Good Game,” commemorates 50 years of Kempsville Pony baseball – from 1959 to 2009. Read The Virginian-Pilot article HERE.
