Ryan went on to say the Stone family will be involved in the design and creation of the sculpture, which will be will be unveiled next season.

In a statement, Shannon’s widow, Jenny, said in part, “We continue to be appreciative of Nolan Ryan and the Texas Rangers as we deal with the loss of Shannon. Shannon and Cooper had a special relationship, and we are touched and grateful that it will be memorialized at one of their favorite places.”
