This is done in Golden acrylic paint on a 24in x 30in canvas. I am planning on possibly doing oil on top of the acrylic when it is close to being done.

The seven players in case you don't know them are (from left to right) Bobby Deorr 1, Joe Cronin 4 (bottom), Johnny pesky 6, Carl Yastrzemski 8 (bottom), Ted Williams 9, Jim Rice 14 (top) Carlton Fisk 27.
The Boston Red Sox are a profesional baseball team in the MLB (Major Leauge Baseball)

Anything you think would be helpful would be appreciated. Thanks! :)

I think the poses are great, really look like they're in action. Like little Hieronymus Bosch characters. I would just say, try to keep things nice and neat. You don't want this getting away from you.

You have really set yourself a challenge here Bree.
I do not know much about baseball, I have only ever been to one game, but I do understand how important the game is to so many people.
All I can suggest is that you get a small Flat brush to cut in around the figures, or maybe a Bright. Flats are probably the most versatile of all brushes, I would get a bristle one. A brush like this is also useful for detail on the figures themselves to avoid that muddy coloured in appearance that can occur sometimes.
