The Sandy Koufax Monument
The Sandy Koufax Monument

Located outside one of the main entrances to Dodger Stadium, this dynamic monument to Sandy Koufax captures him just before he is about to make one of his legendary pitches. While Sandy Koufax's legacy as a pitcher is unparalleled, he is also remembered for refusing to play on the first day of Yom Kippur. His character on and off the field inspired not only the Jewish community, but also multitudes of Americans across the country.

 

The granite mound upon which he stands chronicles Koufax's pitching accomplishments, awards, and some of his own words, inscribed on the side of the base: “As teammates, we were bound together by a single interest and common goal.  To win. Nothing else mattered and nothing else would do.”
