INDIANAPOLIS (WTHR) - Soon you’ll be able to see all of Indiana's sports legends in one spot.

On Tuesday, the Children's Museum announced who will be featured in the exhibit inside the new Riley Children's Health Sports Legends Experience.

It includes bronze statues of 15 sports legends with Indiana ties.

They include Larry Bird, Reggie Miller, Hank Aaron. AJ Foyt and Reggie Wayne.

Several of the legends were there for the unveiling, including Tamika Catchings and Slick Leonard.

“It's just an honor, to look to your left you see Slick Leonard, the Big O right there, legends from golf, legends from tennis,” said Catchings.

“It's a legacy, the honors going back with all the grandchildren we got, Nancy & I, they got something to remember their grandpa." Leonard said with a laugh.

The Sports Legends Experience allows kids to take part in health and fitness activities through sports.

It opens to the public next Spring.
