giant bat

Outside of the Harold Washington Social Security Building, 500 W. Monroe

 

The Chicago Baseball Bat, aka the Batcolumn, is another creation by Oldenburg/van Bruggen. It was installed in 1977 in front of the Social Security Administration Building. The 100' tall steel bat was made in CT. The whiffle structure helps it withstand windy weather
