Legendary Star Tribune columnist and WCCO Radio sportscaster Sid Hartman will be immortalized in bronze today. A statue of his likeness is being unveiled outside Target Field this afternoon.  He told the WCCO Morning News with Dave Lee today that he’s humbled by the honor and considers himself fortunate, since he never graduated from high school or attended college.

The unveiling will be broadcast live on WCCO Radio’s Michelle Tafoya show at 4:30 this afternoon, ahead of tonight’s opening of the Twins’ playoff series with the New York Yankees at Target Field.
