Artist's Description

“Baseball gives every American boy a chance to excel, not just to be as good as someone else but to be better than someone else. This is the nature of man and the name of the game.”

- Ted Williams


This image is from the 4th of July Eugene Emeralds’ game at Eugene’s beautiful and historic Civic Stadium. In 2007 Mat Latos was a 19 year old rookie pitcher in the San Diego Padres’ farm system. Tomorrow, April 10th, 2010 Mat makes his debut as one of the 5 starters in the Padres’ pitching rotation, starting a game against the Colorado Rockies. I thought the Ted Williams quote apropos for the image.
