Warren Spahn, a left-handed pitcher born in Buffalo New York, won 363 games in his career that lasted 21 years. This was more wins than any pitcher in his era, and more than any other left-handed pitcher in baseball history. He is still recognized as one of the greatest pitchers in baseball. In 1946 he moved to Oklahoma where he passed away in his Broken Arrow home in 2003 at the age of 82. In his memory, the Oklahoma Sports Hall of Fame presents the annual Warren Spahn Award to the most outstanding left-hander in the major leagues. In addition, this sculpture was placed in the Warren Spahn Plaza, along the first baseline of the Bricktown Ballpark in July 2005. Created by Shan Gray, the sculpture features Spahn’s signature high kick windup and stands nine feet tall.
