    Description

    Rube Waddell Original Oil Painting. Waddell was unpredictable, and had a habit of leaving the dugout in the middle of games to follow passing fire trucks to fires. He performed as an alligator wrestler in the offseason. He was easily distracted by opposing team fans who used to hold up puppies and shiny objects, which seemed to put Waddell in a trance on the mound. An alcoholic for much of his adult life, Waddell reportedly spent the entirety of his first signing bonus on a drinking binge. In his career, the Hall of Famer had a record of 193-143, 2,316 strikeouts , and a 2.16 earned run average , with 50 shutouts and 261 complete games in 2961 innings pitched. Artist Grant Smith has created a 24" x 36" original Oil painting featuring Rube in a pitching motion. A minimal silver background and two strips of color run down the sides of the painting.
