Statue of Warren Spahn unveiled at Pawhuska


(Pawhuska-AP) -- A bronze sculpture of baseball hall-of-famer and Oklahoma resident Warren Spahn shows the left-hander throwing a fastball.

Spahn says he doesn't mind, even though he won 363 games with control instead of power.

About 200 people attended today's unveiling of the 9-foot statue in Pawhuska. The statue will now be shipped to Atlanta to be placed outside Turner Field, the home of the Atlanta Braves.

Spahn now lives in Broken Arrow and is baseball's all-time winningest left-hander. He spent most of his 21-year career with the Boston and Milwaukee Braves.

The statue was commissioned by the Oklahoma Sports Museum and the Braves Museum and Hall of Fame and was built at the Bronze Horse Foundry in Pawhuska.
