    Re: Kirby Puckett statue

    Based on the picture they probably used, I think the statue looks like the man in the picture. Kirby's facial expression in the picture doesn't look like a normal recognized Kirby face.

    Re: Kirby Puckett statue

    I'm of the opinion most bronze statues tend not to look like who it's intending to depict...

    The inscription says, "Just Puckett."

    I'm just glad they didn't use a post MLB pose or picture. I saw him at a T-Wolves game in 97 or 98 and was shocked!

    Re: Kirby Puckett statue

    That is one of the worst statues I have ever seen. Yes, bronze statues are still supposed to look like who they are depicting.

    I think it actually looks a bit like a yelling Ben Vereen.

    Those are the operative words. They rarely ever do...

    You aren't going to like it unless it's by this guy, and he's been dead a while...
