Atlas Obscura ‘Gods and Goddesses of Baseball’

“The Gods and Goddesses of Baseball,” was unveiled on Monday, March 26, 2007, at 170 King Street near the Caltrain Station. The work of art is right across the street from Oracle Park, home to the San Francisco Giants baseball team. Attached to a commercial office building and rental apartments, these sculptures are part of the structure’s public art installations. 

The nine larger than life mythological creatures span an area of about 120 feet and were created by Russian born sculptor Alexei Kazantsev, who came to the United States in 1993.
