Sports design.

Feeling a little creative, I was inspired by the All Star Game I am going to in Richmond Virginia during July 2019. I am actually very excited for two reasons to attend this event. I’ll be seeing my long time friend of 12 years and it will be my second All Star Game I have ever attended, in all my years of baseball. The first one was last year, when The Long Island Ducks hosted the event.

Anyone in the area of Richmond Virginia interested in the event from July 7 through July 10 2019 can visit the Richmond Flying Squirrels at

I e-mailed the Flying Squirrels to see if they want to use my art. I hope they will, even though they already had the All Star Game logo designed for that event. I was just trying a different perspective.

Thurman Munson

Hello everyone. I thought this might be an interesting link for fans of former New York Yankee Great, Thurman Munson. As some of you might know, Thurman Munson has not been elected into the Baseball Hall of Fame. It is quite interesting with all his above average statistics, he was never elected. He is my favorite baseball player.
