Coach Sid Lansberry 2017

Coach Sid Lansberry Drawing
My good friend Coach and Author Jeff Potter recently commissioned me to do a drawing of another friend of his Coach Sid Lansberry. Coach Sid is the Baseball Coach for the Clearfield Bison High School team in Clearfield PA. I had already started the drawing and Coach Potter contacted me and told me that Coach Sid was very close to 600 wins in his coaching career. I started thinking about the composition of the drawing, and how to incorporate the information about his 600th win into the drawing when that happened. I came up with the ball and engraved bat idea. On May 17, 2017 Coach Sid got his 600th win, and I finished the drawing. 
CONGRATS to Coach Sid, and Thank You to Coach Jeff for always supporting my artwork, and mentoring me in the wonderful game of Baseball.
