After a brief stint playing for the Chicago White Sox, McCall attended California College of Arts to pursue a career in art and has done numerous covers for the Washington Post Magazine and other publications. McCall's sculptures appear in the Children's Museum of Pittsburgh and have been installed in many restaurants in the Washington D.C./Virginia area and Chicago. He and his wife live in Greensburg in an old church that they renovated (their "choise"), with plenty of space in which to work.
