El Tiante


#23 Luis Tiant - ""El Tiante" - 9" x 12" Acrylic on paper. Tiant started with Cleveland but made his mark in my mind with the Redsox during the early-mid 70's. Remember Tiant winning game 1 and 4 in the 1975 World Series vs the Reds. Still my favorite World Series. I strongly considered Kirk Gibson and Ryne Sandber but ultimately the character of Tiant won out - and I couldn't resist getting to paint that face. Milt Papas famously wore 23 for the Braves 68-70 and Halle Berry's husband wore 23 as well. Twenty-two is up
