Milwaukee Brewers 1987 Team Streak Glove Painting

sean-kane-brewers-1987-team-streak-baseball-glove-art-1.jpg

30th Anniversary '87 Team Celebrated on Art at Brewers Fantasy Camp 2017

The latest Brewers Fantasy Camp featured art I created which focused on the legendary 1987 Milwaukee Brewers, who began their season with a 13-game winning streak.

sean-kane-brewers-1987-team-streak-baseball-glove-art-2.jpg

"Team Streak", as they became known, is probably one of my most ambitious glove art paintings so far.

Incorporated in the design are five players key to the excitement of the 1987 Brewers:

Paul Molitor had a 39-game hit streak that season and is depicted coming out of the batters box after his hit in the last game of his streak.

Juan Nieves is depicted throwing the Brewers first no-hitter, a game caught by Bill Schroeder.

sean-kane-brewers-1987-team-streak-baseball-glove-art-3.jpg

Teddy Higuera threw 32 consecutive scoreless innings in 1987.

Dale Sveum had the game winning home run on Easter Sunday, keeping the Brewers winning streak alive.

And Rob Deer led the way on the Sports Illustrated cover story about the hot Milwaukee team. The image of him on the cover of SI was the basis for my portrait of him.

sean-kane-brewers-1987-team-streak-baseball-glove-art-4.jpg

Being a painting about a team, it seemed natural that the whole team should be represented. All player names from the '87 Brewers roster plus manager Tom Trebelhorn are included in the design.

sean-kane-brewers-1987-team-streak-juan-nieves-no-hitter-baseball-glove-art-1.jpg

The catcher's mitt is a pro model 1980s Rawlings, matching the era of the team depicted. While not the exact style used by Bill Schroeder the night he caught the Nieves no-hitter, the mitt did make for an ideal canvas for this painting

This glove art was part of the fundraising efforts of Brewers Fantasy Camp. The raffle for the "Team Streak" art raised money for Stars and Stripes Honor Flight of Wisconsin.

The winner of the framed painted glove was Fantasy Camper Scott F., who says he already knows exactly where it's going to hang in his home.

While not raised as a native Brewers fan, it's hard not to root for such a great group of guys and the opportunity to share my work with them in the desert the past few winters.

Sean-Kane-Bob-Uecker-Major-League-Painted-Baseball-Glove-Art-2.jpg

Bob Uecker is probably best known for his roles as radio announcer for the Milwaukee Brewers and as a comedic actor.

Uecker starred in the popular "Major League" movies as the announcer Harry Doyle.

He appeared regularly in the sitcom "Mr. Belvedere". Uecker was also a frequent guest on Johnny Carson's "Tonight Show".  Uecker is also known for his role in the popular Miller Lite commercials.

Sean-Kane-Bob-Uecker-Major-League-Painted-Baseball-Glove-Art-3.jpg

From 1962 to 1967, Uecker was a catcher for the Milwaukee Braves, St. Louis Cardinals, Philadelphia Phillies and Atlanta Braves.

Sean-Kane-Bob-Uecker-Major-League-Painted-Baseball-Glove-Art-4.jpg

He was part of the 1964 St. Louis Cardinals World Championship team.

Bob Uecker was inducted into the broadcaster wing of the Baseball Hall of Fame in 2003.

In a nod to Mr. Uecker's sense of humor, this depiction of him is based on one of his Topps baseball card photos. In the baseball card photo he is shown in a left-handed batting pose -- even though he was a right-handed batter. Classic Ueck.

Sean-Kane-Bob-Uecker-Major-League-Painted-Baseball-Glove-Art-5.jpg

Given Bob Uecker's connection to Milwaukee -- being raised there, making his MLB debut with the Milwaukee Braves and long tenure as Brewers play-by-play announcer -- it seemed natural to portray him with a Milwaukee cap on in this detailed painted portrait.

Sean-Kane-Bob-Uecker-Major-League-Painted-Baseball-Glove-HOHX.jpg

The glove is a '60s era Rawlings HOH X professional model glove, approximately 11 inches wide by 10.5 inches tall.

Baseball Glove Art Presented to Catcher Carlos Ruiz

Ex-Phillies Catcher Honored by Team for 1000th Game Milestone

SeanKane-CarlosRuizGlove-full-1000x.jpg

Carlos Ruiz or "Chooch", as he is known, was presented this one-of-a-kind painted glove artwork by the Philadelphia Phillies in a private ceremony earlier this month.

The artwork includes a portrait and hand-lettered career highlights.

SeanKane-CarlosRuizGlove-close1-1000x.jpg

The team wanted the artwork to reflect Ruiz's dedication to the game, including being part of the 2008 World Championship and 2009 NL Championship teams.

Ruiz was recently traded to the Los Angeles Dodgers after an 11-year career with the Phillies.

Ruiz has the distinction of being on the receiving end of four no-hitters, including a Perfect Game in 2010.

A big thanks to the Phillies' front office for commissioning this special gift. (and one for Ryan Howard, too.)

Sean has been a professional artist for over 20 years and a baseball fan since he was old enough to wear his dad's old glove.

Catching "Casey at the Bat" for the National Pastime Museum

Vintage Catcher Mitts Capture View of Famous Poem

The one integral player not mentioned in "Casey at the Bat" is the catcher, receiver of the three strikes that got by Mighty Casey.

This visual interpretation of the poem addresses that omission.

Sean-Kane-Casey-At-The-Bat-Glove-Painting-1.jpg

At the time of the poem's publication in the 1880's, gloves were just beginning to be standard equipment on the field.

A player behind the plate may have only had a modified work glove to protect himself.

Sean-Kane-Casey-At-The-Bat-Glove-Painting-2.jpg

A generation later, the 1910's, when catchers wore big mitts and 'Casey' was still popularly performed on stage and radio -- and just after publication of a sequel to the famous poem in which Casey gets his revenge -- is the setting for this triptych.

Sean-Kane-Casey-At-The-Bat-Glove-Painting-3.jpg

The three, century-old gloves used in the artwork help transport us to that era while reminding us of the presence behind the plate catching "Casey at the Bat".

This baseball glove painting is in the collection of The National Pastime Museum, an online museum based on a private collection of baseball artifacts.
