run it down

I have done four pieces inspired by baseball. All are about the essence and feel of playing the game. I sculpted them directly in wax for bronze casting, and I minimized detail and kept the forms thin to emphasize the movements, grace, and balance of the action.

This one is about the long sprint to get a fly ball that you have no chance to get, but then, looking up, there it is. Reaching out in full sprint, it plops into your glove. What a great feeling!
