“This project is especially exciting from a personal perspective,” said Tsuchiya, who grew up minutes away from Ken Griffey Jr. in a neighboring Cincinnati suburb. “In 2002, I met him on the field before a game, and I remember being in awe of his presence. It’s pretty amazing that he will be one of the first likenesses that I will sculpt for the Hall of Fame.”
