Sergio Romo has become one of my favorite pitchers for the San Francisco Giants. He is known for his “no-dot slider” – a filthy pitch that behaves like a typical slider, but with a special rotation where there is no red dot visible on the ball for the batter to look out for.
Here is a sketch of him I did with a silly “Early 1900s baseball meets the Old West” theme in mind. Why? Because Romo is an old school gunslinger.
After reading Craig Calcaterra’s article about San Francisco Giant’s ace, Tim “the Freak” Lincecum and All-Star Closer Brian “the Beard” Wilson’s disagreement over who would win in a fight between Superman and Batman, I had no choice but to literally illustrate my point. I tried to make the sketch as impartial as I could – but for the record: Superman would beat Batman ANYDAY. Enjoy!
