Boston Red Sox Photos: 2018 American League Championship Series Game Five Vs. Houston Astros.

 

We’re back in the World Series! The Red Sox won again in Houston in game five, taking all three games in Houston to win the American League Championship Series 4 games to 1 and advance to a spot in the 2018 World Series. This is huge. 

I had a great time shooting the game and the celebration after. Clinch games like these are always long, grueling, and not as easy as it looks from the outside. It takes hours of preparation, logistical planning, working with others to make sure you’re in a position to get what you need. Once the win happens, it’s nonstop shooting for hours, and then straight to packing all the gear and clothes to get  on a plane and fly over night. I’m feeling exhausted, but looking back at these photos, I’m also feeling lucky to be in the position I am. 

Now we need four more wins to complete this dream season.

Wow is all I can say! What an incredible game. I’m not sure if it’s the baseball itself or just the grind of the post season, but each game seems to get more exhausting. I’m glad we came out on the right end of this one. There were some great moments which translated to great photos, all the way down to the final out. 

Game five tonight, on fumes!

Game three was fun! Got to love a late innings grand slam by Jackie Bradley Jr. to seal the deal on a win to take the series lead. We roll into game four tonight at Minute Maid Park.

Game two of the ALCS was fun! A great win for the Red Sox to even up the series. We’re in Houston now for games three, four, and five!

Here are photos from game one of the 2018 American League Division League series against the New York Yankees. It was a good one! Red Sox were able to hang on for a key game one win. The atmosphere at Fenway Park was great to witness. I’m excited for game two tonight!

In partnership with Major League Baseball, the Red Sox and centerfielder Jackie Bradley Jr. surprised a 7th grade Boston Public Schools student at Boston Green Academy in Brighton with 4 tickets to the American League Division Series at Fenway Park. The surprise is part of a league-wide effort in each postseason market. Wally the Green Monster was on hand for the surprise, along with members of the Red Sox Foundation and Red Sox front office.

Here are a few frames yesterday shot with a rental 600 mm lens we have on hand for playoff baseball. It’s fun experiment with a lens with such big reach. 

Photos: Boston Red Sox Clinch American League East Division.

For the third straight year, the Boston Red Sox are champions of the American League East division. Mookie Betts led the charge last night in a back and forth game that finally ended in an 11-6 win against the Yankees. 

This was the end result of a long, hard week of work. A lot of preparation goes into every game to set ourselves up to be in a position to get the images we need. We arrive hours early to the ballpark to remote cameras, figure out access and security, and scope out spots to position ourselves. It was frustrating to go through that process twice only to lose the first two games, but that made last night all the sweeter. A big thank you to Yankees photographers Ari and Barrie for being so accommodating and helping us get the shots we need. It was also great working along our team Staff Photographer, Matt Thomas, as well as the rest of our Creative Services team who made the trip down. 

I’m back home now, but on the train ride home found myself thinking about how lucky I am to be a part of a special team and organization like this. Three division championships in three years doesn’t just happen in baseball, and I don’t take for granted the fact that I get to document a team of this caliber. Let’s hope for a deep run into October!

I’m in New York with the team to shoot what we all hope will be an American League East Division clinching game against the Yankees this week. Although they came close, the Sox lost last night. Tonight, we try to clinch again!

Here’s a gallery of images from a Red Sox win during a late afternoon game yesterday. The light was as good as I can ever remember it. It always helps!
