SPRINGFIELD, IL — Illinois State Senators Jacqueline Y. Collins (D-Chicago 16th) and Emil Jones, III (D-Chicago 14th) will join with business owner Lawrence Calvin D’Antignac and other civic and community leaders to honor the players of Jackie Robinson West this Sunday, March 1, at The Woodshop.

During the presentation, the youth will receive reproductions of “Full Count 3 and 2,” by famed artist Annie Lee. The piece depicts a young boy pitching in a sandlot baseball game.

“This is the perfect representation of how our young Little Leaguers first get introduced to baseball,” D’Antignac said.

Under the leadership of D’Antignac and his wife, Marvita, The Woodshop, which opened its doors in 1974, has become a major dealer and purveyor of African, African-American and Caribbean art.

The event will be held Sunday, March 1, 2015 , 11:30 a.m., at the Woodshop, 441 East 75th St., in Chicago.
