This the second part of my favorite photos from the Gulf Coast League from this year. I took the photo above of Spencer Hylander at the last GCL game I did this year covering the GCL Nationals and GCL Astros in Viera, Florida. I had a chance to meet Spencer’s dad at the game that afternoon and it was a pleasure getting to know him. Thats one of the things I like about covering Minor League Baseball is the people you meet. Below is a few more of my favorites.

Keeping with the Gulf Coast League theme from my last post I thought I would put up some of my favorite GCL photos from this year. The photo above of Daniel Coury of the GCL Braves is my favorite photo from the GCL this year. I knew when I pressed the shutter this was going to be a good one, I really liked the way he made the throw to first. I took the photo at the Braves Spring Training complex at Disney’s Wide World of Sports.  The photos below are the first half of my favorite GCL photos from this year.

The Gulf Coast League games are normally played on the back fields at the training facilities and you will hardly see any fans attending the games. Occasionally the teams will play on the Spring Training fields but to date I have not been to any of those games. You can see the rest of the top 20 from the Gulf Coast League here.
