Description

    Hack Wilson's Bar Original Oil Painting. The slugging center fielder holds the distinction of being one of the few players not remembered for his home run records (all though he did lead the league for three straight years). He is best remembered for his 1930 season where he had one-hundred ninety-one runs batted in. Wilson's heavy drinking is believed to have been the primary cause for his rapid decline in baseball, resulting in his retirement following the 1934 season. Wilson moved to Baltimore and during World War II, worked in a defense plant. When his health began to fail, Wilson made appearances on radio programs, using himself as an example of the results of alcoholism. Wilson died at age 48. Artist Grant Smith has painted a bar that Hack ran for a short time. The painting has a red background and stands as a symbol to the flaws of all humans. Signed on the front and back by the artist. Canvas size 11"x 14".
