Another Home Plate Hero image: update

Deloneys Homage to Josh Gibson
  • Deloney's "Homage to Josh Gibson"

I love Rex Deloney's work, and so imagine how happy I am to see that he has contributed a home plate painting to the "Home Plate Heroes" auction sponsored by the Jim Elder Good Sport Fund to benefit kids' non-profits in Arkansas. Online bidding starts Sept. 17 at; they'll be displayed at the Thea Foundation, 401 Main St., NLR, through Sept. 28.

Deloney is chair of Central High School's art department. Lucky students.

The painting is a tribute to Josh Gibson, catcher for the Homestead Grays in the Negro Leagues.

Update: Susan Elder, Jim Elder's daughter and the woman behind "Home Plate Heroes," sent this better image of Deloney's work.
