Babe Ruth statute on Eutaw Street
On the street there is also a statue, created in 1996 by sculptor Susan Luery, of left-handed Babe Ruth holding a right-handed fielder's glove. The statue is entitled, "Babe's Dream", and shows him at the beginning of his career, before left-handed gloves (for the right hand of a fielder) were an option. However, the inclusion of the incorrect glove on the statue was indeed the result of a lack of baseball knowledge on the part of the people working on the project. According to a stadium tour guide, the statue sculptor used an old picture of the Babe as basis of the statue and it was NOT a mistake. MLB and the Orioles both researched and confirmed this.
