Gladden’s Grand Slam

For most of my professional art career, starting early 1970’s and still going today I have been an illustrator. This was one of my favorite commissions.

Steven-Carlson-GrandSlam

The Minnesota Twins 1st World Series Championship 1987. Game 1, Saturday, October 17 Dan Gladden hits a grand slam home run to cap off a seven-run fourth inning. –

Interesting note: The Twins came into the 1987 season number 13 out of the 14 American League teams. –

 

This piece of art was done for the Twins and WCCO Radio for the 1988 baseball pocket schedule. It was truly one of those great art commissions for me. I still have the original art.
