Description

    Napoleon Lajoie Original Oil Painting. Lajoie led the AL in batting average five times in his career and four times recorded the most number of hits. During several of those years with the Naps he and Ty Cobb dominated AL hitting categories and traded batting titles with each other, most poignantly coming in 1910 when the league's batting champion was not decided until well after the last game of the season . Lajoie in 1914 joined Cap Anson and Honus Wagner as the only major league players to record 3,000 career hits. He lead the NL or AL in putouts five time in his career and assists three times. He has been called "the best second baseman in the history of baseball" and "the most outstanding player to wear a Cleveland uniform." We offer an original 12" x 12" oil painting by artist Grant Smith showing Nap while with Connie Mack's Philadelphia A's.
