#8 Willie Stargell - "Pops" - 9" x 12" acrylic on paper. It would have been easy to pick Yogi Berra here - or Cal Ripken - or even Carl Yastrzemski. I am big fans off all those players. But honestly I never pulled for any of them like I pulled for Stargell and the 1979 Pirates. They were so much fun. Down 3 games to 1 in the World Series they stormed back and beat Baltimore in 7 games. Down one to nothing in the 6th Stargell hit a 2 run homer to win game seven. An who as a kind didn't mimic his bat wind up! #7 - is there more than one?
