Entrance of Principal Park, Iowa Cubs, along the Meredith Trail
[…] the front of Principal Park in Des Moines frames the steel sculpture of a stylized baseball by Iowa sculptor James Ellwanger. [Made of Galvanized steel, aluminum chip paint], the sculpture honors former Iowa Cubs owner Ken Grandquist (1923-1999) and is a gift from his family. A plaque there says, “Like the seams of a baseball which never end, Ken Grandquist’s love of the game and the fans was never ending.” Chuck Offenburger, 2010.
