More Baseball!

Today I photographed part of the Lehighton vs. Pleasant Valley baseball game. They were rained out yesterday and today they had to start by finishing a suspended game from two weeks ago due to rain. April showers have turned into May showers and it was cold today.

The Bears beat the Indians in the first game by a score of 12 to 3. Travis Raseley launched a grandslam over the left field fence to add four more insurance runs in the top of the 7th inning. The second game was tied 2 to 2 when I had to leave in the middle of the third inning.

Photographing a baseball game is enjoyable. I love to anticipate where the action will take place and each time the ball is put into play there are any number of things that can happen. A base runner might steal second. A hitter might hit a homerun. A pitcher might strike out the side. Captuing these moments with my camera is one of my most favorite pasttimes.

Today, when Raseley hit his grand salami, I tracked him with my camera as he approached and then rounded third base and made his way to the plate. The smile on his face told the whole story! You can view the photos here to see what I am talking about.
