Up for this week, Pop Fly print #110. "El Dandy Dominicano" This 7 x 10.5" print is available for preorder for one week only. After that, it's retired forever. This print is a collaboration with none other than one of the all time greats, and the winningest pitcher of the 60's: Juan Marichal. In addition to regular copies, copies signed by Marichal are also available.

Juan Marichal, "The Dominican Dandy," was one of the greatest control pitchers of all time. In '63, he finished 25 and 8 with a 2.41 ERA, leading the majors in wins and innings pitched. '65 saw him lead the majors in Shutouts with 10.

In 1968, the Year of the Pitcher, Bob Gibson dominated with his 1.12 ERA, but Marichal was absolutely in the conversation, leading the league in wins.

His career was all the more inspiring because in those days, there weren't many familiar stories of young Dominican kids overcoming their circumstances and making it to the majors. As Joe Posnanski said, "dreams of playing baseball in America were not even feasible enough to be dreams."

But dreams they became, and those dreams manifested into one phenomenal career. In 1983, Juan Marichal became the first Dominican player elected to the Baseball Hall of Fame. He became the dream of many Dominican kids, seeing themselves on the diamond because of him.

“Every time I look at these prints, I think of my father. If artists can channel their adversity into incredible works of art that we get to enjoy, then we should challenge ourselves to turn our struggles into something that can benefit others.”
