Hobrecht Sports Art offers a fine art giclée edition print, printed on high quality archival canvas with archival ink, based on Dave Hobrechts original charcoal painting of the infamous Michael Pineda pine tar incident.
Baseball’s greatest rivalry between the New York Yankees and the Boston Red Sox has seen some memorable moments but few more notorious than the time Yankees pitcher, Michael Pineda was caught cheating with pine tar in April 2014. Hobrechts painting depicts the moment home plate umpire, Gerry Davis, detects the illegal substance on the pitchers neck, which Pineda had been illegally applying to the baseball. Davis ejected Pineda and he was subsequently suspended for 10 games. The original painting is now in the private collection of umpire Gerry Davis, a 32-year veteran of the Major Leagues.
The canvas prints are stretched and mounted onto wooden frames with hardware included, and are ready to hang. All prints are made and shipped directly from the Hobrecht Sports Art Gallery in Laguna Beach, California. The Medium and Large prints are signed and numbered by the artist, Dave Hobrecht.
