ST. LOUIS, MO -- A recent meeting between the St. Louis Cardinals' Design Committee and HOK Sport solidified that Wishbone Chisel & Mallet, Inc. will be the exclusive source for decorative, hand-carved stone medallions, which will adorn the new $400 million Cardinals ballpark in St.Louis, MO.

Wishbone's artist and stone carver, Gabe Drueke, will hand carve each of the 11 original designs into Indiana limestone. Once the originals are complete, molds will be made and approximately 74 cast stone replicas will be used for accenting the exterior brickwork of the stadium.

Ground-breaking ceremonies were held in January 2004, and the new ballpark is slated to open for the 2006 season. Visit to learn more.
