Owner Pittsburgh Pirates

Stargell played for the Pittsburgh Pirates from 1962 to 1982. His primary position was left field. Affectionately known as "Pops," he was a father figure for the team. Wagner sculpted him ready to hit a baseball, perhaps one of the three home runs he hit in the Pirates' 1979 World Series victory.

Susan Wagner lives and works in Pittsburgh. She is a sculptor and a painter. Her figurative sculptures can be seen throughout Pittsburgh and other spots around the world such as the National Baseball Hall of Fame  and The Vatican.
