Ken Griffey Tribute Wall

Fabrication, Engineering, & Installation

Beaverton, Oregon Jan, 2015

Permanently on display in the Air Lounge lobby of the Ken Griffey Jr. building on Nike WHQ, this piece was almost not built due to budget restraints. I worked directly with the production line at Louisville Slugger to value engineer the final build. We saved time, money, and materials by having Louisville Slugger lathe the bats to scale with the miter completed upon delivery.

After receiving the 630 bats we laser etched each one with a unique number and date that Ken Griffey JR hit his 630 career home runs. The 10 gold gloves were added to represent the awards that Griffey won. The 630 bats were arranged around Griffey’s nickname “The Kid.”
