I’m just now finding the time to get caught up on photos from the weekend. A rainy day on Friday made for a nice night off but a busy double header on Saturday. 

The Red Sox and Angels split the two games, but because these two teams are so heavy offensively, each game lasted well over four hours. That’s a lot of baseball for one day.

I shot the first game from third base, and the second game from both third and first base.

Images from Sunday to come soon!

It’s hard to believe time has passed so quickly, but yesterday marked the start of my fourth season working as a photographer in Major League Baseball. 

I always love Opening Day, and yesterday at Fenway Park was no exception. We caught a break from the freezing cold that we’ve had up here in Boston, and had a beautiful, sunny, warm afternoon to work in. That, along with all the other familiar sights and sounds that make baseball so perfect, was rejuvenating to say the least. 

It made for a long day, beginning with a 5:00 A.M. arrival at the ballpark and ending with night class and a few hours of editing in the lab at Boston University, but a great day nonetheless. 

Here are some images I made from the pre-game ceremonies and the general scene around Fenway. I threw in a bit of orange and black as well.

It was fantastic to see all the Boston photographers back in the same place, and a pleasure to meet some new ones. Plus, the Red Sox took on my hometown heroes, the Baltimore Orioles.

My two favorite teams and a fresh start. A dream come true for this guy.

Here’s to another season!
