We Are Family

#18 Omar Moreno - "We Are Family" - 9" x 12" Acrylic painting. This is mostly a team award here - Omar was the lead-off hitter of one of my favorite teams - the 1979 Pittsburgh Pirates. In the 70's and part of the 80's it because vogue speedy hitter at the top of the lineup. Moreno was certainly that and hit .333 in the '79 World Series. Other 18's Johnny Damon and Gene Tenance ( and honestly would have went with Tenance had there been better reference. Braves of note - Ryan Klesko wore 18.
17 is sort of thin with superstars - but I have a favorite in mind
