University of Miami Plans Dedication of
Coach Ron Fraser Sculpture in Spring, 2015
Beloved University of Miami Coach Ron Fraser will be honored with the unveiling of his sculpture in Spring, 2015 at Alex Rodriguez Park. The sculpture, a closely guarded work in progress, is scheduled to go to the foundry for casting in October, 2014.
Standing seven feet high, the sculpture has been reviewed by Ron Fraser’s daughters and wife, as well as individuals involved in the commissioning from University of Miami. The pose is taken from the well-known magazine cover featuring Coach Fraser in a suit, holding a baseball bat in one hand as it rests on his shoulder.
Rick Remmert, Director of Alumni Programs, Athletics Department, who has coordinated and overseen this project for University of Miami, says:
“Within the next 48 hours, we expect to sign off the clay model and look forward with great anticipation to the foundry stage. It will be with abundant gratitude as well, for in entrusting the legacy of our great Coach Ron Fraser to Zenos Frudakis, we have found a kindred spirit who goes to any and every length…”
