Jackie Robinson may very well be the most important player in MLB history. He was carefully chosen to be the one to change it all. Jackie Robinson's courage and eloquence while crossing the color barrier during the 1947 baseball season is nothing short of legendary. Now baseball was beginning to equalize. Soon after Robinson crossed the color barrier, Larry Doby crossed and so on and so forth, until every last great player in the Negro Leagues was plucked, then the Negro Leagues dissolved into oblivion. As an artist, I try to do my part in keeping the legacy of the Negro Leagues alive and well. 52" x 37" Mixed Media artwork is the latest in my long line of tributes to the Negro Leagues of Baseball.
