Broken bat on Ken Griffey Jr. statue to be repaired this weekend
SEATTLE - Ken Griffey Junior's statue outside Safeco Field will soon have its bat back.
The Mariners said the artist who created the bronze statue plans to return to Seattle on Friday to fix the broken bat on the statue.
A tent will be put up around the statue in the coming days to protect the work against any "rain delays."
The repairs should be finished by Sunday.
Mariners pitchers and catchers report to Spring Training in just over two weeks on Feb. 14. The team opens the regular season at home on March 29 against the Cleveland Indians.
