Derek Jeter is plastic man
The Louisville Slugger Museum & Factory features an exhibit through Labor Day in which 222,180 LEGO pieces have been turned into stadium replicas – 57,960 of them for Wrigley Field – and player portraits.
The largest portrait is Jeter’s, with 5,068 LEGO bricks, all fashioned by certified LEGO artist Sean Kenney, a job I did not previously know exists.
All cool. But not as cool as this: The replica of Miller Park features a retractable roof that actually moves.
