Jeffrey Havill created a series of three sculptures for the Athletic Complex. He has named these welded hand wrought steel sculptures The Pitcher, The Batter, and The Crack of the Batted Ball. The narrow steel lines give a graphic quality to the sculptures. The abundance of negative space conveys a lightness associated with a favorite American pastime, baseball. These sculptures set a stirring tone, enhancing the sporting environment in a positive, energetic manner.
