Kent Hrbek statue
I'm currently putting together a website cataloging all of the USA’s baseball statues - www.sportingstatues.com - as such I was wondering if anyone out there could let me know what the plaque inscription on Kent Hrbek's recent statue says - I can't find a photo of the plaque anywhere. Answers to c.b.stride(at)sheffield.ac.uk please :-)

Sorry I can't help. You made me curious, so i'm posting so I can find it more easily and check back.

I'll try to get out there tomorrow. I'm headed out to the 'burbs in a few minutes or I'd do it right now. (I live about 5 blocks from the stadium.)

"Yeah, I'll have a number three with cheese, onion rings, and a chocolate shake. Wait, what? What's this for again?"
Okay, so I haven't made it out there yet. Sorry, I've been busy.

I think it says:
Kent Hrbek: This Twins great is known for fishing, eating, hunting, and the occasional baseball game. He is currently believed to be a masked wrestler in Japan using the name 'Tyrannosaurus Rex'.

I finally made it out there. I took a picture that I can post later when I'm not on my phone, but the plaque reads:
1981 - 1994
Kent Hrbek to his wife Jeanie Hrbek,
before the start of the 1987 playoffs
"I don't want to win the World Series
for me, but for all of the fans
of Twins baseball."

Thanks for the effort.
Your suggestion would have fit Hrbek much better.

Hrbek is proof positive that Dean Wormer was wrong. Fat, drunk and stupid is absolutely the way to go through life.

Also I hope you are going to talk about the Michael Jackson statue at Fulham's Craven Cottage. If you do not know what I am talking about it is worth a Google.
