Mickey Mantle Statue #2

Field review by the editors.

Oklahoma City, Oklahoma

Frozen in time as if he'd just slugged one of his mammoth home runs, a bronze Mickey Mantle stands outside the third base entrance to RedHawks Field at Bricktown, Okahoma's triple-A minor league ballpark. The Hall of Fame baseball player -- star of the New York Yankees -- is nearly eight feet tall and weighs over a ton.

Mantle was born and raised in Oklahoma but really had no connection to Oklahoma City. A nearly identical Micky Mantle statue stands further north in his home town of Commerce, but the statue in Commerce depicts the switch-hitting Mantle batting right, while the one in Oklahoma City shows him batting left. Even though the statue in Oklahoma City predates the one in Commerce by 12 years, Mantle was already dead by the time it was unveiled.
