Boston Red Sox Photos: 23rd Annual Celebrity Golf Classic.

Members of the Boston Red Sox participated in the 23rd Annual Red Sox Celebrity Classic golf tournament this afternoon, which benefits the Children’s Hospital of Southwest Florida. Here are some images from the event.

I tried to shoot this less as “event coverage” and more as an opportunity to look for moments of the individual guys. It worked out well a few times. I was happy to get that shot of Mookie lounging in the golf cart.

 

 

Photos: Boston Red Sox 1975 40-Year Reunion.

Here are photos from the 40-year anniversary and reunion of the 1975 Boston Red Sox team.

I’m a week late to post these, but I wanted to make sure that I didn’t forget about them. I obviously wasn’t around for the 1975 World Series run, but I understand the significance of it, and know that it was and continues to be a big deal to a lot of people.

It’s neat to be up close to so many heroes of the past – Tiant, Fisk, Yastrzemski, and Rice to name a few. Shooting things like this remind me that baseball, and sport in general, is timeless.

A great game by center fielder Mookie Betts and a Red Sox victory helped make for a great night.

Photos: 2015 Boston Red Sox Spring Training – Day 1.

I’ve arrived in sunny Fort Myers, Florida, where I’ll be shooting photo and video for the next week at Boston Red Sox Spring Training.

It was a busy first day for me, so I’m just going to post a few quick stills here from the team’s first meeting and full squad workout. 

I’ll have lots more photo and video content to come as the week goes on, so be sure to check back if you’d like!

Red Sox Hall of Fame day is always a special one around Fenway Park, and this year’s induction was particularly memorable. Yesterday, broadcaster Joe Castiglione, former shortstop Nomar Garciaparra, and former pitchers Roger Clemens and Pedro Martinez were inducted as the newest members of the team’s Hall of Fame. 

This was a busy day of shooting, but it was a pleasure to be on hand for this event and hear so many stories from those guys’ careers. 

Here are the highlights from the Hall of Fame luncheon, pre-game ceremony, and game. I also threw in some photos of former Boston College baseball player and ALS fundraiser, Pete Frates, accepting the recently trending Ice Bucket Challenge in front of the Green Monster and of the “Rocket” Roger Clemens throwing batting practice to his kids before the game.

Enjoy!
