From Chris Stride, Ffion Thomas, John Wilson at The Sporting Statues Project on March 5, 2013:
The Sporting Statues Project records and researches statues of sportsmen and women around the world. Since 2010 we have published academic papers and magazine articles, and collected information on over 600 statues.
At present this website displays the database for all UK sporting statues, with US baseball statues to follow in March 2013. For news on forthcoming statues, follow us on Twitter.
If you have any information, corrections or photos of sporting statues to contribute, or are organising a statue project yourself, we would be interested to hear from you. Likewise we are happy to be interviewed for media coverage around the subject and welcome offers for collaborative research or articles based on our database. As well as the information showcased here we have many hours of interviews with sculptors and project organisers, more detailed information on many of the statues featured, and a wealth of contacts.
To view all baseball statues in the U.S. and Canada, visit http://www.sportingstatues.com.
