Livan Hernandez and the Strike Zone He Made

As our own brilliant and enviably popular Jeff Sullivan demonstrated recently, Livan Hernandez — who announced his retirement on Wednesday — survived in baseball for 17 years by making his own strike zone. Here, in tribute to a unique if not arousingly dynamic pitcher, is the only known photograph of Mr. Hernandez with the strike zone he made.

The work has been described by critics as “luminous…haunting in its unsettled polyvalence…intimately charts the artist’s fractured subjectivity under the hegemony of late capitalism.” It is under consideration for acquisition by the National Folk Art Museum.
