Dean won 30 games in 1934 en route to the World Series Championship. He was the National League MVP that year, also scooping up an All-Star nomination while leading the league in strikeouts.

Dizzy Dean played for the Cardinals before being traded to the Chicago Cubs for the 1938 season. He appeared briefly for the St. Louis Browns in 1947.

A Career Captured on a Mitt: A Gift for Coop

Glove Art Commissioned as a Surprise Present for Cecil Cooper

Last year a Painted Glove featuring Cecil Cooper was created for the Milwaukee Brewers Fantasy Camp as a fundraising item, which turned out to be a hit.

That baseball glove art prompted camp friends and former Brewers teammates of Coop's to commission a new painting celebrating his impressive baseball career -- this time as a surprise gift for him.

sean-kane-cecil-cooper-baseball-glove-art-brewers-batting.jpg

This gift was given to Cecil Cooper at Milwaukee Brewers Fantasy Camp earlier this month (Feb. 2016) in Arizona.

The glove features depictions of Coop's time on two American League Championship Teams: playing first base with the Boston Red Sox (1971-1976) and up to bat the Brewers (1977-1987).

Centered on the large mitt is the main portrait of him as a Brewer.

sean-kane-cecil-cooper-baseball-mitt-back-side.jpg

Since Coop is a lefty, I chose an appropriate 80's era Rawlings first base mitt, just like the one he told me he used during his career.

sean-kane-cecil-cooper-baseball-glove-art-stats.jpg

All the big stats and honors from Cecil Cooper's career are noted, including his Gold Gloves, All-Star games, Silver Sluggers and RBI Leader years.

Also, researching his 2192 career hits, I found that Coop ranked 112th on the All-Time Hits list at the time of his retirement.

Cecil expressed excitement about the gift from his friends and says it will be displayed proudly at home between his Gold Glove Award and Roberto Clemente Award.

As the artist, it doesn't get much better than knowing that a creation is meaningful to the recipient.

1982 Milwaukee Brewers Infield on Fantasy Camp Fundraiser Art

'82 Brew Crew Baseball Glove Artwork a Hit

A baseball glove painting commemorating the 1982 Milwaukee Brewers starting infield was part of the fun and fundraising at the Brewers Fantasy Camp recently held in Phoenix.

Sean-Kane-Yount-Gantner-Cooper-Glove-detail.jpg
Sean-Kane-Molitor-glove-detail.jpg

The intricate painting features Hall of Famers Paul Molitor and Robin Yount, Jim Gantner and Cecil Cooper.

The glove used is a 1980's Rawlings Pro Model. Upon seeing the glove, Yount said, "That's my gamer." It wasn't actually one of his game-used gloves, but it confirmed that the glove was definitely the right one for this painting.

The deep pocket of the glove and wrap around design of the artwork required cutting my paint brush handles in half (link opens new window) in order to fit my hand in the glove while painting.

The design process involved selecting photo reference of the infielders from 1982, arranging them with an eye on where seams and fingers break up the surface, and sizing them to fit.

Sean-Kane-1982-Milwaukee-Brewers-glove-art.jpg

I definitely wanted to include the iconic Brewers logo, placed on the "infield diamond" of the glove, along with other logo types the team used on jerseys from the Championship season.

It was a thrill to be present for Fantasy Camp Q&A Night with participants from the '82 AL Championship team.

And it was a treat showing the artwork to 3 of the 4 guys portrayed on the glove: Gantner, Yount and Cooper.

Also answering questions that night from the 1982 team were Don Money, Mike Caldwell and Brewers/baseball legend, Bob Uecker, who I got to sit with in the front row.

Former Brewer and Fantasy Camp coach, Don Money, is shown here with the winner of the glove artwork, camper Paul C., whose name he drew in the raffle.

Best of all, the '82 Brew Crew Painted Glove was part of an exciting and generous camp fundraising effort (including Kangaroo Court fines, jersey auction and matching grants) that raised $7500 for Stars and Stripes Honor Flight

The donation from Brewers Fantasy Camp will send many WWII and Korean War veterans to Washington, DC to visit their memorials. Fantastic!

A big thanks to Brewers' broadcaster and captain of the camp, Bill Schroeder (above, talking to Brewers' Doug Melvin), along with pal Rick Ramirez and the rest of the Brewers staff and Fantasy Camp family that welcomed me back to their awesome event to be a part of the fun.

Simmons was part of the dominant Philadelphia Athletics teams that won the A.L pennant in 1929 and World Series in 1930 and 1931. He was a star outfielder for a total of seven teams from 1924-1944.

Sean-Kane-Al-Simmons-baseball-glove-art-portrait

An antique baseball glove from the 1930s, similar in style to what Al Simmons wore in the outfield during that era, was used for this painting.

Simmons won the batting title in 1930, batting .381 and in 1931, batting .390. At the time of his induction into the Hall of Fame in 1953, he had the most hits by any A.L. right-handed batter in history with 2831.

Sean-Kane-Al-Simmons-baseball-glove-art-batting

Born in Milwaukee, Simmons went on to collect a .334 lifetime average with 2927 hits and 307 home runs. The position of his feet while batting earned him the nickname "Bucketfoot Al".
