Description

    Mel Ott Original Painting. Ott was a six-time NL home run leader, in 1932, 1934, 1936-38, and 1942. From 1928-1945, he led the New York Giants in home runs. This 18-season consecutive dominance is a record; no other player has ever led his team in more consecutive years in a single Triple Crown category. He was both the youngest player to hit 100 home runs and the first National Leaguer to hit 500 home runs. He passed Rogers Hornsby to become the all-time NL home run leader in 1937 and held that title until Willie Mays passed him in 1966 . We offer an original oil painting by artist Grant Smith measuring 24" x 18" on a stretcher frame, showing Ott with his trademark high leg kick which was considered unorthodox at the time.
