Designer's comments: It was a whole lot of fun to work with different people and try new things with this art project. I was excited when I heard the news and I couldn't wait to get started on my bench. I want to give special thanks to Mrs. (Becky) Cunningham, my art teacher at Hearn, for helping me.

The Louisville Slugger people in Louisville donated the bats used on my bench. Steve Brooks of the Frankfort Parks and Recreation consulted with me on several aspects of my bench. Franklin County Deputy Sheriff Russ Sparks cut in half all the baseballs used in my bench. Some fourth graders (now in the fifth grade) at Hearn helped decorate and paint the bench - their names are listed on the back.
