The authority approved Odell Associates' proposal Tuesday. Pending a sales contract by both parties, the sculpture will be moved to the Lucky Strike power plant building in Richmond's Tobacco Row.
The 2,400-pound sculpture known as "Connecticut" has been a part of The Diamond since 1985. It served as a towering symbol of the Class AAA Richmond Braves.
But with a new team called the Flying Squirrels coming to the city, the authority decided the sculpture is no longer needed at the ballpark.
