SABR

A miniature recreation of Ebbets Field

From Bob Duff at The Windsor Star on July 6, 2012:

Every one of the 31,000 green-coloured seat bottoms fold up.

Each of the 1,000 lights illuminate brightly.

It’s so realistic you half expect the toilets to flush.

Ebbets Field, home to the long-lost Brooklyn Dodgers, was levelled in 1960, but it’s been reborn in, of all places, a studio in Oldcastle.

A year ago, Mark Williams, owner and head designer of Imagine That Laser Art Products, was commissioned to build a 1-48th scale replica of the legendary ballpark, home to the Dodgers, or Dem Bums, as they were lovingly known in those days, from 1913-57.

About a month from completion, to see it up close is to look upon a masterpiece of miniature model construction.

“It is museum quality,” Williams said proudly. “You won’t find anything like it anywhere.”
