Bears Baseball

Pleasant Valley hosted the Mounties of Stroudsburg today. This is a long-time rivalry and both teams are doing well this year. The playoffs are next week, so this game was being watched by everyone who could be there. PV started on top with a 2-run homer by Pat Kregeloh, who also was the pitcher for the Bears. He hit a second  home run later in the game, but Stroudsburg stole home in the top of the 7th inning to tie the game at 5. Derrick Walling reached first when he was hit by a pitch in the bottom of the 7th. Travis Raseley put down a very nice sacrifice bunt to put the winning run on 2B. Tim Shea came to the plate and stroked a single into right field for the winning RBI. What a game!

There were many great moments to photograph during this game! The problem was where to focus my attention at times, wondering where the action might take place next. It was an action-packed game and one that I will remember for a long, long time. Anticipating where the next play is going to take place helps in being ready to capture the action on the field. I always have scenarios in my mind as I try to anticipate what might happen next. Selecting an area and pre-focusing on that area is often a good approach. There are times, of course, when the action takes place quickly and in places you never expected. This is why always being ready is imperative.

I cannot for the life of me figure out how some people think that baseball is boring. To me it is the best game in the world and I will keep putting myself in places where I can try to capture the action. I will be ready for the next game, will you?
