Robert's comments on the painting:
"This painting was an enjoyable challenge. I'm known for capturing athletes on canvas and do not, as a rule, paint many stadiums. I thought it would be fun to showcase the moment before the batter swings. The ball is on the way and anticipation is building. Also in the painting are many special details that make the piece unique to this event. For example: I knew I wanted to feature Willie Wilson, and I thought what better way than putting him on the Jumbo-Tron stealing a base? I took additional artistic license by adding the names of event sponsors on the backboards."
