The Upper Room (The Last Supper)

The-Lords-Last-Supper

This piece commemorates the New Testament story of The Last Supper that Jesus shared with his disciples in the “upper room”…

While they were eating, Jesus took bread, and when he had given thanks, he broke it and gave it to his disciples, saying, ‘Take it; this is my body.’ And he took a cup, and when he had given thanks, he gave to them: and they all drank of it. And he said unto them, ‘This is my blood of the covenant, which is poured out for many.’ Mark 14:22-24

Bruce-Sutter-St-Louis-Cardinalsnals

Howard Bruce Sutter was a fantastic right-handed relief pitcher and closer. He was said to be the first pitcher to make effective use of the split-finger fastball. He dominated in the late 1970s and early 1980s becoming the only pitcher to lead the National League in saves five times (1979–1982, 1984). In 1979, Sutter won the NL’s Cy Young Award as the league’s top pitcher. 1982 he helped the Cardinals win the World Series and appropriately closed out the Milwaukee Brewers in Game Seven. This piece commemorates that accomplishment.

George Herman “Babe” Ruth, aka “The Bambino”, aka “The Sultan of Swat” began his career as a stand out left-handed pitcher for the Boston Red Sox, but achieved his greatest fame as a slugging outfielder for the New York Yankees. Ruth established many MLB batting (and some pitching) records, including career home runs (714), runs batted in (2,213), bases on balls (2,062), slugging percentage (.6897), and on-base plus slugging (OPS) (1.164); the latter two still stand today. Ruth is regarded as one of the greatest sports heroes in American culture and is considered by many to be the greatest baseball player of all time. In 1936, Ruth was elected into the Baseball Hall of Fame as one of its “first five” inaugural members. This piece commemorates his legendary season and the Yankees legendary season of 1927.
