On the sidewalk along the St. Clair Street side of Fifth Third Field, look for a life-size bronze vignette of four young baseball enthusiasts vying for a peek through a 10 ft. "wooden" fence.

This bronze sculpture features a familiar Rockwellian theme of childhood, often termed the "Knothole Gang", which has roots in every city. In creating the artwork, artist Emanuel Enriquez hoped to "capture the community spirit of baseball; it's about family, it's about people." This piece was funded with a generous contribution from George and Deborah Chapman and the City of Toledo's 1% for Art Program.
