“Game Changer" (2014) is Paula Henderson's art glass piece that she was commissioned to do for the Sox–35th subway station in Chicago as part of the city's Arts in Transit program. The piece celebrates the legacy of professional baseball in a mirrored composition of White Sox legends and Negro League greats—who played their East-West All Star games at the former Comiskey Park. In the lower panels, Jackie Robinson’s arm extends into the upper panels representing his ‘breaking of the color line’--ending segregation in the major leagues. The upper panels reflect change over decades in its patterning of the diversity of White Sox ‘greats’.”
