I normally do not like to post photos like this because you can not see his face. But I do like how his bat broke and the ball and bat was still in the photo.
Well that is all for tonight I need to get back to tagging and uploading photos.
The weather was perfect for opening night and there was a large crowd on hand an hour before the game even started. It was good to see some of my good friends that I had not seen since last season and I am happy that baseball is back. I do not have a lot of time for this post today but I have uploaded a few photos from the game below.

Tonight was the first game of the season for me which featured the Daytona Cubs in an exhibition game against Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University.
I had been waiting for this game for a couple of weeks to have the chance to knock a little bit of the rust off. I had felt at the game that I was really rusty, but after looking at the photos from the game I was not as rusty as I thought.
I am really excited about this year for a couple of reasons. This is going to be my 3rd year as the Dayotna Beach Cubs team photographer and my 2nd year as one of the Florida State League Photographers. I have also started shooting for Four Seam Images
a image agency specializing in all levels of amateur and professional baseball. I am very honored that they asked me to be a part of what they have going. Be sure to check my blog often as I will be updating on a weekly basis now that the season is starting.
The last inning that I was at the game I got the shot above of Josh Vitters watching his 3 run shot fly out of the park. All in all this was not a bad way to spend my Wednesday night.
