Giant Kick

#27 Juan Marichal - "Giant Kick" - 9" x 12" Acrylic on paper. Juan won more games in the 60's than any other pitcher. Famously won the "greatest game ever pitched" by beating the Braves Warren Spahn in 16 innings - both pitched the whole game. Mays homered off of Spahn in the 16th to win it 1-0. I almost went with Vladimir Guerrero but the leg kick won out in the end. Also seriously considered Carlton Fisk. Braves who wore 27 - Lonnie Smith and Pascual Perez. McGriff wore 27 with Braves for 5 years but wore 29 for most of his career. #26 is up next. 
This one will not be a pitcher.
