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!

Another tough one for us last night. We look to clinch tonight in New York!
