Boston Red Sox Photos: Sunday, May 1, 2016 vs. New York Yankees.

Last night was one of those crazy games to shoot. It was by no means a pitcher’s duel, and several lead changes back and forth made for a busy night of shooting and editing. Add in the late start time, unseasonably low temperatures, and pouring down rain for most of the game, and you had all the ingredients of a night that was tough to get through.

It’s a good challenge though, and on days when you know conditions aren’t going to be ideal, it makes you psych yourself up more than usual to be able to push through it. I like trying to locate that energy. A Red Sox win and series sweep over the Yankees and a good take shooting make it all worth it.

The New York Yankees are in town for the first series of the season against the Boston Red Sox. I always love shooting this series. Although the rivalry is somewhat subdued relative to where it stood several years ago, the intensity is always still there, and it brings a playoff-like atmosphere to the Park.

Here are photos of game two yesterday, which was a good one for the Red Sox. It’s always great seeing David Ortiz launch a home run against the Yankees. 

Boston has already won the series, but we’re on for game three on ESPN Sunday Night Baseball tonight! More to come.

As is tradition in Boston every year on Patriot’s Day, the Red Sox hosted an 11:05 AM game at Fenway Park against the Toronto Blue Jays yesterday. The early start time – the only morning game in Major League Baseball – coincides with the Boston Marathon. Runners pass just a few blocks away from Park as they approach the end of their 26.2 mile journey. Although the Red Sox weren’t able to pull out a victory over Toronto, the mood was festive and cheerful inside Fenway. Before the game, Boston Marathon bombing survivor Jeff Bauman and actor Jake Gyllenhaal, who is playing Bauman in the upcoming movie, ‘Stronger,’ threw out a ceremonial first pitch together.

It’s hard not to think about where we all were three years ago on this day, in the immediate aftermath of the bombing. Living through that week was surreal for everyone involved. I found myself thinking about it a lot yesterday.

I’m just now getting caught up on posting from a really busy Marathon weekend here in Boston. Here are photos from Sunday’s game against the Blue Jays.

Here are a few frames from yesterday’s game against the Blue Jays. Our ace David Price hurled a good one, and Xander Bogaerts sparked the offense with a three-run home run. 

More baseball today!

Happy Opening Day! 

Boston welcomed their beloved Red Sox to a warm return yesterday in a festive Opening Day at Fenway Park. Pre-game ceremonies included a special ceremonial first pitch by four Boston sports legends – Bobby Orr of the Boston Bruins, Ty Law of the New England Patriots, Bill Russell of the Boston Celtics, and David Ortiz of the Boston Red Sox. In an emotional moment, Ortiz was surprised by his daughter, Alex, who sang the National Anthem before the game. Although the Sox were unable to pull out a win against the undefeated Baltimore Orioles, the day marked the start of the final campaign for Big Papi, and the beginning of what should be an exciting season.

It’s always a long day for us. We didn’t get much cooperation from the weather for our annual sunrise photo, but it was still a lot of fun to be back at it. There will be a ton of content to come from this season!
