It was a syle of pitching all his own. Bend deep at the knees...right arm way back, left arm way forward...front leg WAY up! Rear back, shift forward, and VOOM - wire it like a sling shot to the plate. Juan Marichal was one of the most unique pitchers ever to play the game, but more importantly, he was one of the most successful! One of the first Dominican stars to grace the big stage of Major League Baseball, "Manito" gave it his all with every pitch, competed like every game was his last, and dominated the 1960s with 189 wins in 320 starts. When he was finally selected for the Hall of Fame in 1983, his legacy was complete: the "Dominican Dandy" took his rightful place among baseball's legends.

Printed in poster size exclusively for The Sports Poster Warehouse, this historic image brings you back to the early years of baseball in San Francisco, when the Dodgers juggernaut (and the Yankees in '62) kept legends like Marichal, McCovey, and Mays, and the Candlestick faithful, from ever tasting World Championship glory. Still, no amount of late-season heartbreak could diminish the love for men like Marichal! Printed from original photographic sources, and authorized with an official MLB Authentic serialized hologram, this gives you both a perfect view of the Marichal pitching style, and a rare collector's item that brings back a lifetime of memories. A true vintage classic, this hall-of-fame image is perfect for the wall of any true old-school Giants fan!
