In 2009 artist Donald Lipski recreated Brancusi's Bird in Space for the new Goodyear Ball Park in Arizona where the Cleveland Indians hold their spring training. The Ziz stands as tall as the distance from the pitcher's mound to home plate (60' 6"), and has stitches on it, like a baseball. Constructed out of fiberglass, concrete and steel, it resides in a pool near the ballpark's entrance, anchoring an extensive mixed-use development.
