The Reds will be unveiling a new statue at Great American Ball Park later this year in honor of Hall-of-Fame Second Baseman Joe Morgan.  Sculptor Tom Tsuchiya  is putting the finishing touches on it this week at his studio. 

If you've been to the ballpark, you're already familiar with Tsuchiya's work.  He created the statues of Ted Kluszewski, Frank Robinson, Ernie Lombardi, Joe Nuxhall and Johnny Bench.  He's also the artist for several statues at Xavier University, including the one of the Musketeer d'Artagnan, and the new Jesus statue at Solid Rock Church in Monroe.
