See Wrigley Field before they tear it down!

Jonathan Daniel

In case you're wondering,

- this is a Lego version of Wrigley Field, and

- it took 640 hours to create.

It would have taken longer, but the creator left out the impending JUMBOTRON that's going to help restore Wrigley Field to its past glory ...

From the press release that arrived Friday morning:

Louisville, KY - An original exhibition at Louisville Slugger Museum & Factory features amazing sculptures, portraits, and stadium replicas all built with LEGO® bricks. Big Leagues, Little Bricks runs now through September 2, 2013 and the exhibit is included in the general admission price for the museum.

The exhibition showcases renowned artist Sean Kenney, one of only 13 LEGO® Certified Professionals in the world. Kenney's pieces in Big Leagues, Little Bricks include hip portraits of baseball superstars, dynamic conceptual sculptures of iconic baseball moments and a show-stopping replica of historic Wrigley Field.

Another awesome piece on display is a replica of Miller Park, home of the Milwaukee Brewers, built by Tim Kaebisch when he was a graduate student at the Milwaukee School of Engineering. The Miller Park creation utilizes over 35,000 LEGO® bricks and has a retractable roof that actually moves.

I've been the Louisville Slugger Museum, and it's a wonderful place to visit even without hundreds of thousands of little plastic bricks. So consider this my heartiest endorsement, if you're going to be within a hundred miles of Derby City this summer.
