A good one yesterday against Bryce Harper and the Phillies. We were able to snap a 9-game losing streak which was fun!
Another season in the books, folks, and what a way to end it! The Sox won in dramatic walk-off fashion as Mookie Betts roared toward home plate to score the game winning run on a ninth inning hit by Rafael Devers. It’s nice that we were able to end on a high.
It wasn’t the season we had all hoped for on the field after last year’s success, but still a great year to be a part of for many reasons. I feel lucky to witness neat things and be a part of some unforgettable experiences every year, even on the down years. We have a great group of players to work with, and an incredibly talented staff of creatives that bring this team and ballpark to life every day.
That’s the end of my eighth season with the Boston Red Sox, and my tenth in Major League Baseball. I’ll have a more thorough recap of the season in my yearly review towards the end of December. For now, I’m excited for a bit of REST.
We are winding down our 2019 season. With only four home games left, I decided to get a good solid roam in today rather than camp out in the pit. Luckily, we had a beautiful September Boston day and a win to end this mini 3-game home stand. It’s been tough to push creatively knowing that our team isn’t in contention, but today felt like a good refresh.
Xander Bogaerts doubled, stole third, and scored the go-ahead run in the eighth inning of last night’s game to give the Red Sox a win and a series sweep over the Toronto Blue Jays. J.D. Martinez and Rafael Devers both homered for Boston. Before the game, a special pre-game ceremony was held in recognition of Childhood Cancer Awareness.
Here are a few photos from the last of a four game series between the Boston Red Sox and the Cleveland Indians. Boston won the first two games of the series, but the Indians were able to win the last two to even the series up.
A new series against Minnesota begins tonight at Fenway Park!
I’m just returning from jetBlue Park in Fort Myers, Florida, where I was shooting and editing for several days at Boston Red Sox Spring Training camp. It’s hard to believe it’s already time for baseball. Where did the offseason go?
This year, we’re aiming to amp up our efforts to produce more great multimedia work within the Red Sox photo department, so we hit the ground running in Spring Training. This is one of a series of quick, fifteen second multimedia videos that are being posted to the Red Sox Instagram account. Each one is unique and highlights a different player on the team, be it a returning player from the 2013 World Champion roster or an exciting, young up-and-comer. We aimed to individualize each piece by playing to the personalities of each guy.
We have more players in the works, but I’m as Spring Training is still in its early stages, I’m posting pitchers and catchers here – Jon Lester, John Lackey, Clay Buchholz, Jake Peavy, Henry Owens, Brandon Workman, and A.J. Pierzynski.
Feedback online so far has been great, but as always, I’d love to hear your thoughts, comments, questions, and criticisms! Each of these is a combination shooting and editing effort between myself and Red Sox Manager of Photography, Mike Ivins.
On a more general note, as I enter into my fifth season shooting in Major league Baseball, I was really excited to work Spring Training for my first time. It was one aspect of the game I felt I hadn’t gotten to know yet, and this was a nice sampling of what the baseball scene is like down in Florida.
