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.
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.
In the 4th inning Robinson came up to bat with the bases loaded and I remember thinking to myself 2 things: (1) I better be ready because he just might hit it out (2) He always gives a nice look coming out of the box. All I can say is that I was right this time on both accounts.
In the 7th inning Robinson came up to bat again with the bases loaded again and he had the same results. He finished the game with 3 hits and 8 RBI’s. It was a career game for him to say the least and in my mind it could not have happened to a nicer guy.
I have been asked a few times since the season finished what is my favorite photo that I took this season. Without a doubt this the one.
