Aluminum Bat

Aluminum Bat - Biggest in Canada

In 2001, the city of Edmonton decided to "revitalize" busy 118th Avenue by renaming the street "Avenue of Champions" and erecting a giant aluminum bat! Some sources refer to it as the Biggest Baseball Bat in Canada, but I suspect that it is quite likely the biggest bat made out of aluminum in the entire world. It is 15 metres long on a 6 metre base.

The street corner is busy day and night with traffic and the bat is almost hidden between power poles and electric lines. But it is certainly big!
