Willie Mays statue at Regions Field

BIRMINGHAM, Ala.(WIAT) — The National Multiple Sclerosis Society’s Legacy of Leadership will be unveiling a sculpture of Willie Mays on Wednesday.

The MS Society will be holding the dedication to honor Birmingham Barons owner, Don Logan.  Local artists, Caleb O’Connor and Craig Wedderspoon created the sculpture of Willie Mays.

“I noticed that he was this very focused person. He enjoyed the game, he didn’t complicate it from what I saw. He just played. He had a sixth sense which every player didn’t have” says artist, Caleb O’Connor.

The dedication is at 4p.m. on the 14th St. side of Regions Field.
