Mike Stanton went 3 for 5 and scored 2 runs in his Major League Debut for the Florida Marlins on Tuesday night. I shot this photo of Mike on Memorial Day of this year. I made it a point to drive to Jacksonville to see him play one more time. Glad I did!

I had the chance to shoot Stephen Strasburg in his first game in the Florida Instructional League for the Nationals on October 5th 2009. Watching his first start in the big leagues tonight made me want to go back and look at my images from that game. Looking back at it now I feel good about my decision to take the day off from work to shoot the game.

For the game Strasburg threw 94 pitches with 65 of them going for strikes. He also struck out every player in the starting lineup. Not a bad start.
