Boston Red Sox Photos: Wednesday, April 26, 2017 vs. New York Yankees.

Back at it again for another homestand at Fenway! Not a great night for the Sox last night, but you never know what you’re going to get with the Yankees in town. We’ll see how tonight goes.

Marathon Monday in Boston! The annual sporting ritual always falls on Patriot’s Day, which also always coincides with morning baseball. An 11AM start is always strange, but a welcome change of scenery and light. Here are a few from the festivities today!

The Boston Red Sox recognized Jackie Robinson Day yesterday, wearing number 42 jerseys across the entire roster. The team also recognized One Boston Day, the anniversary of the 2013 Boston Marathon bombing. Through all the ceremonies and recognitions, the Red Sox pulled off a close 2–1 victory against the Tampa Bay Rays. Here are some photos from the day.

Rough one last night! Not much happening from a Red Sox perspective. Let’s just hit the reset button for today’s game!

Boston Red Sox Photos: 2017 Opening Day.

We’re back at it again! The 2017 season is underway, as the Boston Red Sox held Opening Day at Fenway Park this afternoon. The team honored the Super Bowl champion New England Patriots with a special pre-game ceremony. There’s never a dull moment when you have personalities like Tom Brady and Rob Gronkowski in the same place. The Patriots players had fun with the ceremony, which made for some lighter photos. 

On the field, the Red Sox looked good. Rookie Andrew Benintendi hit a 3-run home run to give the team an Opening Day win over the Pittsburgh Pirates.

This is my sixth Opening Day shooting for the Red Sox, and eighth overall. Is that right?! It’s hard to believe. It’s always a long day, but a lot of fun. 

I have lots more coming from this season!

Boston Red Sox Photos: Mookie Betts – A Day In The Life.

A few weeks ago, I spent the day following around Boston Red Sox right fielder, Mookie Betts, at Spring Training in Fort Myers, Florida. I met him at his house in the morning, and along with my friend Luke Fraser, a videographer for Red Sox Productions, we rode into JetBlue Park with him. Once we got to the park, we followed him around for most of the day, shooting his workout routine, pre game habits, actions during the game, and his cool down and exit after it. 

Here is a link to the full photo story, text write up, and video from the day. The results are pretty neat.

There seems to be a trend for this type of storytelling with athletes right now. There’s a desire to see these athletes not just as larger than life players on a ball field, but as humans with personalities and day to day lives like the rest of us. I’ve made it one of my goals to do more storytelling this year, and I think this was a good trial run. I hope that I can build upon this piece to produce more content like this with the players throughout the season. The addition of video also brings the production value of stories like this up a notch, so I want to continue to work with the talented people and resources we have here at the Red Sox to do our best collaborative work together.
