Baseball Painting Chicago Cubs Art

Chicago Cubs, Murphy ‘s bleachers wanting and waiting  – to see their faces now.  Do you believe in miracles delivered in style? – a night of baseball you will never forget.  History in Cleveland Ohio. Not World Series Champions since 1908. They got together and rallied in a rain-delayed  game full
of heart attack moments. Bringing the title back to Chicago.  It did happen coming back from being down 3 to 1 in the series.  Loud crowd – high emotions. The Cubs don’t need a plane to fly home.

Some Tweets I liked during World Series Game

World Series Game 7: Will the Chicago Cubs or Indians break their curse?   1908. 1948. A drought will end If you’re not watching baseball tonight …. something is wrong with you!! Just feels like this is going to be an epic ending.  Nobody has a good reason to not watch this game!!!  Things to remember: The pitcher throws the ball to the catcher. The catcher is the one without the bat.

I have not yet decided whether I will accept the result of tonight’s game. I want to keep you in suspense.

@DexterFowler launches the first leadoff homer in a winner-take-all

Tremendous sportsmanship being shown tonight. Really refreshing with all of the craziness going on in this world.

Not even a baseball fan, but @Cubs vs @Indians Game 7 is the stuff of HISTORY! Eyes glued to the TV!!!

The announcer described Anthony Rizzo as “the most polite man in major league baseball” this is utterly delightful

@RaeBeta I don’t believe politeness is an official statistic.

@RaeBeta Baseball is lots more fun the players are humanized as characters.

THIS is why baseball can be great!

Can I just say: Regardless of the result of the play, I love Lindor helping Rizzo up after the hard slide. @c_albertdeitch and the “nice play” tap, after the play on top of it @c_albertdeitch yeah the play was clean too

Painting by Sports Artist John Robertson of Chicago Cubs Second Baseman Ryne Sandberg throwing a baseball

Ryne Sandberg My Niece’s Favorite Player

The “Ryno” Ryne Sandberg played second baseman for the Chicago Cubs.  I painted this sports art for my niece as a wedding present.  My sister lived in Chicago for a number of years and, as IPainting by Sports Artist John Robertson of Chicago Cubs Second Baseman Ryne Sandberg throwing a baseball remember, she went to graduate school there also.  She is a big fan of the Chicago Cubs and when her first daughter was born she named her Ryne after Ryne Sandberg.  Although they eventually moved away from the Chicago area they continued to be fans of Chicago.  Knowing that I am a sports artist, my niece asked for a Chicago Cubs painting.  So I have surprised her with this baseball painting.

Ryne Sandberg Major Accomplishments

Ryne Sandberg was elected to the National Baseball Hall of Fame in January 2005; he was formally inducted in ceremonies on July 31, 2005.  He was a perennial All-Star and Gold Glove candidate, making 10 consecutive All-Star appearances and winning nine consecutive Gold Gloves from 1983 to 1991. His career .989 fielding percentage is a major-league record at second base

Quotes from Ryne Sandberg

In his  July 31, 2005, Cooperstown, NY Baseball Hall of Fame speech he said, “The reason I am here, they tell me, is that I played the game a certain way, that I played the game the way it was supposed to be played. I don’t know about that, but I do know this: I had too much respect for the game to play it any other way, and if there was there is a single reason I am here today, it is because of one word, “respect.”¹ I love to play baseball. I’m a baseball player. I’ve always been a baseball player. I’m still a baseball player. That’s who I am.”

One of my favorite quotes from Ryne Sandberg is because it has more meaning in to life and not just baseball.  He said, “In baseball, there’s always the next day.”  There  is always the next day to move on with your life.  Don’t let the past haunt and weigh you down.  I like that thought.
