Roberto Clemente – “The Great One”

Roberto Clemente was a Puerto-Rican MLB right fielder who played his entire eighteen season career with the Pittsburgh Pirates from 1955-72. Clemente is regarded as one of the greatest baseball players of all-time and he had an illustrious career. He won two World Series championships with the Pirates in 1960 and 1971 and was awarded World Series MVP in ’71. Clemente was on the NL All-Star team 15x, received 12 Gold Glove Awards, awarded NL MVP in 1966 and became a member of the 3,000th hit club in his last game. Clemente was elected to the Baseball Hall of Fame posthumously in 1973 becoming the first Latin American selected and the only Hall of Fame member whose mandatory five-year waiting period has been waived. In 1973, his #21 was honorably retired by the Pittsburgh Pirates and he was awarded the Congressional Gold Medal and the Presidential Citizens Medal. To this day, he is loved and admired by many in Latin America and Pittsburgh for who he was as a baseball player and as a humanitarian.

Bill Mazeroski

Bill Mazeroski, nicknamed “Maz”, is a former MLB player who spent his entire career with the Pittsburgh Pirates between 1956-72. He is regarded as the greatest defensive second baseman of all-time. Mazeroski is best known for winning the 1960 World Series with a dramatic game ending home run over the left field wall at Forbes Field. It is considered as the greatest home run in baseball history and the only home run to win a World Series game seven. Mazeroski’s #9 was retired by the Pittsburgh Pirates in 1987, followed by his enshrinement in the Baseball Hall of Fame in 2001.

Forbes Field

Featured here is a graphite pencil illustration of another beloved Pittsburgh landmark. Forbes Field, nicknamed “The House of Thrills” was a baseball park in the Oakland neighborhood of Pittsburgh. It served as the third home of the Pittsburgh Pirates and the first home of the Steelers, as well as the University of Pittsburgh football team. The stadium was named after British general, John Forbes who fought in the French & Indian War and named the city of Pittsburgh in 1758. The Pirates won three World Series titles while at Forbes Field in 1909, 1925 and 1960. In 1921, it was the first live radio broadcast of a MLB game in the United States.

Forbes Field was the location of one of the greatest moments in sports history. In the final game of the 1960 Word Series, Bill Mazeroski earned immortal fame by hammering a dramatic game winning walk-off home run over the left field wall in the bottom of the ninth inning against the New York Yankees. My dad enjoyed going to this ballpark with his father and brothers in the 50′s and 60′s to see their childhood heroes like Clemente and Maz.

Arnold Palmer – “The King”

Featured here is a painting I created of beloved PGA golfing legend, Arnold Palmer. He was the personification of pure class and he is hailed as one of the greatest icons in sports history. The painting is set against the background of the picturesque Latrobe Country Club where he was raised and launched his monumental career. He was someone who never forgot where he came from with that deep-rooted gracious and humble southwestern Pennsylvania persona which people loved so much about him throughout the world. Arnold Palmer was a professional golfer and one of golf’s most popular stars. He won numerous events on the PGA Tour and PGA Tour of Champions throughout his career. From 1955-73, he won 62 PGA Tour titles and collected seven major titles in a six year domination from 1958-64. He was awarded the PGA Tour Lifetime Achievement Award along with the Presidential Medal of Freedom and the Congressional Gold Medal.

Dale Earnhardt, Sr. – “The Intimidator”

Dale Earnhardt was an American NASCAR race car driver best known for his involvement in stock car racing. He is considered one of the best NASCAR drivers of all time. He won seventy-six races throughout his career and earned seven championships which tied him with Richard Petty. His aggressive driving style initiated fear in fellow drivers thus earning him the nickname “The Intimidator”. On February 18, 2001, it was at the Daytona International Speedway where Earnhardt lost his life on the final lap of the Daytona 500.

Jesse Owens – “The Buckeye Bullet”

Jesse Owens, known as “The Buckeye Bullet” was an African-American track & field athlete and one of the greatest sports icons of the 20th century. Owens achieved international fame the world over by winning four gold medals at the 1936 Summer Olympics in Berlin, Germany. He became the most successful athlete of the Olympics that year and inspired many people. His victories were even more poignant because Adolf Hitler had intended the Olympics in Berlin to showcase his Aryan ideals and prowess. Jesse Owens was garnered with awards and accolades throughout his lifetime including the Presidential Medal of Freedom in 1976 and the Congressional Gold Medal in 1990. I portrayed Owens in this colorful digital illustration wearing his USA jersey with the Brandenburg Gate in the background which is a notable landmark in Berlin.

“Hoop Dreams”

Aside from football, basketball was and still is one of my favorite sports. This painting is titled “Hoop Dreams” and features the three basketball stars I grew up with and emulated. I was a big fan of the Boston Celtics with the likes of Larry Bird, Kevin McHale, Dennis Johnson, Danny Ainge & Robert Parish. During the 80′s there was an intense NBA rivalry between the Celtics & Lakers with each organization winning multiple championships. Then of course there was Michael “Air” Jordan and everyone wanted to be like Mike with his signature moves and enthralling slam dunks.

Andrew McCutchen

Featured here is an illustration I created of Andrew McCutchen on the night of his monumental game winning walk-off home run on July 11, 2015. The Pittsburgh Pirates were hosting the St. Louis Cardinals in a four game home stand at PNC Park and were battling to gain some vital ground in the NL Central standings before the MLB All-Star Game. The game featured a classic back-and-forth thriller between the two baseball teams. McCutchen stepped up to the plate in the bottom of the 14th inning and in storybook dramatic fashion launched a two-run-walk-off cannonball over the center field wall. It was one of the most dramatic home runs in Pittsburgh Pirates history and a great moment in Pittsburgh sports history as the Pirates beat the Cardinals 6-5. This was one of the greatest games at PNC Park and will be remembered for a long time.
