I'd like to introduce myself. I'm Steve Ramer. Welcome to famousbaseballplayers.net.
Two of my biggest passions are baseball and art.
As for the art end of things, I have been drawing all my life. Which is 56 years now. I never had any formal art education, except for those art classes we all had to take in school.
A long time ago I learned to paint with acrylics.
That's what I use to create my Great American Baseballs.
My love for the game of baseball and art has produced many drawings and paintings. Creating my Great American Baseballs gives me the chance to combine my love of art and baseball.
It's been mostly through trial and error that I perfected my craft of painting on baseballs. I also had help from one of the best sports artists in the business. Monty Sheldon
Monte was kind enough to give me some tips on the best way to approach painting on a round surface. I want to take this opportunity to thank him.
I've also been a baseball player most of my life. Starting with little league, we didn't have tee ball back then. I moved up through high school and American Legion ball and even played two seasons in the Philadelphia Phillies Organization.
That's my uncle and me during spring training in Clearwater , Florida in 1975.
I'm still playing ball in what's called the Men's Senior Baseball League. You have to be at least 48 years old to play which really helps us old guys. It's regulation baseball, and wooden bats!

My wife Robin and I live in the woods of eastern Pennsylvania. Our daughter, Khara and son Luke are grown. But we do have a seven year old grandson, Paul, compliments of our daughter and her husband.
Thanks again for checking out my website. I hope you enjoy my Great American Baseballs as much as I enjoy creating them.

This website is still new and I'll be adding much more. But please browse through what's here so far.
If you have a favorite player you would like to see painted on a baseball, let me know.
My business has been growing steadily. It amazes me how far it has come from nothing but an idea.
