I had the chance to shoot my first Double A game this past Sunday in Jacksonville Florida. The game featured the Jacksonville Suns and the Birmingham Barons playing a postponed game 3 of the Southern League Semi Finials. My original plan was to cover the Florida State League Finials game in Charlotte, but the game between the Tampa Yankees and Charlotte Stone Crabs was rained out the night before so it would not be a deciding game on Sunday. That made it an easy decision for me between a 4 hour drive or a 1 hour drive to Jacksonville.

The Baseball Grounds of
Jacksonville
is an absolutely beautiful ballpark with a top notch and friendly staff that is very accommodating. The stadium has a nice feel to it and it rivals some of the spring training parks in the Florida State League.

The game resumed from the night before in the bottom of the first inning with the Suns having the bases loaded. The Suns scored 2 runs in the inning and never looked back winning the game 12-2 and advancing to the finials against the Tennessee Smokies.

The game turned out to be a good one and I was able to get some great celebration photos after game of the players and fans.
