A statue of Fort Wayne native DaMarcus Beasley was unveiled along with those of 15 other sports legends at The Children’s Museum of Indianapolis on Friday.
Beasley attended Ft. Wayne South Side High School and now plays for the Houston Dynamo.
He is one of the most decorated players in American soccer history and one of only three U.S. men to play in four FIFA World Cups.
Born in Ft. Wayne Beasley began his professional career with the Chicago Fire while still in high school, and has had a remarkably long international career. After playing professionally for clubs in Europe and Central America from 2004 to 2014, Beasley joined the Houston Dynamo.
His statue is displayed at the Old National Bank Sports Legends Avenue of Champions along with multiple statues of other athletes and coaches. The statues are displayed along a path that winds through the park-like setting of the new 7.5-acre Riley Children’s Health Sports Legends Experience at The Children’s Museum of Indianapolis.
