Municipal water tower with town name painted on the lower stem and a baseball on top.

Water Tower Shaped like a Baseball

Baseball water towers are perhaps the most obvious concept for a municipal sphere (too bad there isn't any sport that involves a ball on a tee!). But passersby may appreciate the effort put into seam/stitch painting.
