Minoso Statue Damaged, To Be Repaired
In Response to Questions
Unfortunately, the rumors are accurate that the Minnie Minoso sculpture was damaged on Sunday. His bat was broken off by a fan, who then escaped into the crowd. Our security personnel did recover the bat. I spoke with one of our sculptors, and we hope to have repairs done as soon as this Friday.
Mark Gonzales of the Tribune heard the same rumors and emailed me last night to verify. To his credit, he ran a note today. Sox fans can debate the play of this story vis-a-vis the burned out ivy story of a few years ago — as you already are doing. Hopefully, it will be fixed soon and be none the worst for wear.
