I have a few photos today from the game I shot on April 14th between the Daytona Cubs and the Dunedin Blue Jays. Dunedin scored 2 runs in the first and 3 in the second inning and never looked back winning the game 11-6 over the Cubs.

My next post should either be next Wednesday or Thursday and it should be an interesting one. Long time Daytona Cubs fan Front Row Joe will mark his 1000th consecutive game at the Jack. The Cubs will be wearing throwback jerseys from their first season to mark the occasion. I look forward to sharing my photos with everybody from the game.

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.

Austin Romine was another player that I had the chance to see many times this year. Austin has a chance to go a long way in the Yankees system.

I will be breaking this post into 2 parts because of the number of photos that I have. My next post I will upload the remaining players that I have from the list
