That’s a sweep for the Red Sox to start the second half of the season! Here are a few images from the third game of the series.
I got to follow Boston Red Sox catcher David Ross as he visited young patients at the Jimmy Fund at the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute in Boston yesterday.
David was absolutely great with the kids, and it’s always refreshing to see these types of interactions. The team isn’t playing well right now, but seeing some of the real problems some of these young people are dealing with puts things into perspective.
These were a few moments I liked.
We had a good game yesterday at Fenway Park, as Jon Lester struck out fifteen batters and Jonny Gomes hit a grand slam to lead the Red Sox to a win over the Oakland Athletics.
A nice day for pictures – good light and good action!
Yesterday was a great end to the first homestand of the Boston Red Sox season. A 4:00 PM start time against the Texas Rangers had me excited to hunt for golden light and deep shadows, and that’s what I found.
Beautiful light combined with vintage late inning dramatics from David Ortiz made for a good day of shooting all around.
We can’t seem to fully turn the corner into the Summer weather up here in Boston. Nearly the entire week has been cold, wet, and rainy, and yesterday was more of the same. We’re all glad that we escaped a possible double header today and got the game in with no delays – props to the Fenway Park grounds crew, who worked really hard to make sure the game finished on time – but it was still less than ideal conditions to work in.
You have to work with what you have, though, so on days like yesterday, I’m always on the hunt for rain features. That’s mostly what I shot and what I’ve posted here.
Yesterday was also particularly special in that hundreds of residents of Newtown, Connecticut and members of Sandy Hook Elementary School were in attendance at the game in recognition of Connecticut Day at Fenway Park. After the game, they were invited down to the field to take photos and interact with players and coaches from both the Red Sox and the Cleveland Indians. I’ve included three photos from the event above as well.
I’m at the park now for another game today!
