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.
