Boston Red Sox Photos: Saturday, October 1, 2016 vs. Toronto Blue Jays.

Here are some images from last night’s game against Toronto. A tough ending for the Red Sox in another cold, rainy night at Fenway, but a nice ceremony beforehand for David Ortiz.

After much fanfare and anticipation, Derek Jeter brought his historic Major League career to a close yesterday, playing his final game as a member of the New York Yankees against the Boston Red Sox at Fenway Park. I’ve been lucky to witness some pretty special moments and ceremonies here in Boston, and this certainly ranks right up there with all of them. 

Jeter is one of those figures in sports that are larger than life, alongside the Roger Federers, Tiger Woods, and Michael Jordans of the world. If not always statistically, than with presence and aura alone. I’ll never forget the moment I saw Jeter up close in the dugout for the first time as an intern for the Baltimore Orioles back in 2009, and what’s more, ever since I began watching baseball as a boy, Derek Jeter has been there. What he’s done is truly impressive. 

Here are a selection of images from his final weekend.

And just like that, the 2014 regular season is over, bringing to a close my fifth complete season working in Major League Baseball. It’s funny how things can change so quickly. Last year we won the World Series. This year we finished last in the American League East division by 25 games. Needless to say, things were a bit different around here. 

But every season is memorable, and there were some great moments and events this year at the park. As a staff, we were able to get some incredible images, and we’re continuing to push the world of multimedia and video to places it hasn’t been before. 

After a World Series run followed by all the proceeding festivities followed by another busy season, it’s almost time for a break. Almost! Until then, I’ve got more to come from a place they call  “Birdland.”

It’s been a busy, cold, but exciting week shooting hockey at Fenway Park during Frozen Fenway 2014. We’ve had lots of games to cover, which has given us the opportunity to get a good variety of images. 

Over the course of the week, I’ve tried to find lots of different looks, not just on game action, but also on those quieter moments before and after the game. I think it’s important to remember that as huge as some of them are, these are just college kids. The chance to play the game they love outdoors in Fenway Park is something very special, and I tried to convey that emotion when possible. During the game, I kept mobile, shooting some periods from down low, some from behind the glass, and some from up high. 

I mentioned in my last post that hockey isn’t something I grew up around, but after these several weeks I feel very comfortable shooting the sport. This was a good introduction, and I hope I can have the opportunity to do more with it in the future. 

It was also neat to shoot a skate-around with one of the all-time hockey greats, Bobby Orr! I threw a few of those pictures in there as well for the Bruins fans out there.
