The sculpture is a unique 15-foot-tall hand that is gripping a baseball and consists of mild steel. Solar cells are located at the top, and the solar energy produced will be stored in a battery based on the pedestal, lighting up the sculpture.
"The powerful image will be a monument to all the players while providing fans an iconic symbol of the Desert Diamonds baseball complex," said Commissioner Jones.
Renewable Envoy is an ignitable force and social movement to utilize and integrate renewable energy into public art and infrastructure in Nevada. Stuckey teamed up with local artist Luis Varela-Rico and solar consultant Michael Andrieu to create the sculpture.
