Louisville Slugger exhibit features Lego stadiums

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) - A baseball-themed exhibit built entirely from Legos is attracting adults and children to the Louisville Slugger Factory and Museum.

The exhibit occupies a large space inside the museum and is filled with baseball-themed art, including a 58,000-piece model of Wrigley Field, home of the Chicago Cubs.

There are also portraits of famous major league players built out of Legos, and a model of Milwaukee's Miller Park with a retractable roof.

Curator Nathan Stalvey says the "Big Leagues, Little Bricks" exhibit was created just for the Slugger Museum.

Cameron Crossley, an 11-year-old from Pembroke Pines, Fla., was visiting the museum last week and was impressed by the sculptures. Crossley says he would love to have a job building Lego creations when he grows up.

The exhibit runs through Labor Day.
