Long Description:
On our way through Joliet, IL. we came across this Highway Giant sporting the team colors and holding a jack hammer. It looks like his right hand got turned around in order to make it look like he's operating the jackhammer.

Approximately one year ago, Peter Ferro purchased a Muffler Man from a businessman in Ham Lake, Minnesota. Mr. Ferro owns the Joliet JackHammers Professional Minor League Baseball Team (Northern League) in Joliet, Illinois. Mr. Ferro had the Muffler Man brought here (on a snowmobile flatbed -- and open all the way from Minnesota -- they got quite a few stares). The Muffler Man has been totally refurbished and is now "Left Field Louie," named selected from 2003 baseball fan submissions. He is on display at Silver Cross Field in Joliet, Illinois, home of the Joliet JackHammers. [Helen Marchbank, 06/29/2004]

[RA: After every homerun, Louie "emits the smoke and sound of a jackhammer, complemented by strobes and spotlighting."]

How cool is that?

20191105: This Muffler Man has been moved, because the baseball team went broke. More details at roadsideamerica.com.
