Braves pick Atlanta artist Ross Rossin to create new Hank Aaron statue

Atlanta artist Ross Rossin has been tapped to create the new Hank Aaron statue for SunTrust Park, the future home of the Atlanta Braves in Cobb County.

The team made a brief announcement on Twitter with a photo of the baseball legend having his picture taken, presumably in preparation:

Rossin is a portrait artist who has painted notable figures including Arthur Blank, owner of the Atlanta Falcons; former President George W. Bush; and the poet Maya Angelou, to name just a few.

A spokesperson for the team said it would not be releasing any additional information for the time being.
