New cast, same bronze
The plaque images for Class of 2016 members Ken Griffey Jr. and Mike Piazza will be the first sculpted by Tsuchiya and will be revealed for the first time on July 24 in Cooperstown when Griffey and Piazza are inducted.
“I can’t wait for July 24,” Tsuchiya said. “I’m excited because my work is done, it’s just a matter of waiting. So for me, it’s time to party.”
