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!

We’re underway at Fenway Park for the 2013 American League Championship Series between the Boston Red Sox and the Detroit Tigers. 

Everyone always talks about the capabilities of the Detroit pitching staff, and last night was proof of why they do so. This high powered Red Sox offense was held to just one hit through nine innings, as the Tigers were won 1-0 in game one. It’s hard to win a game on one hit, and from a photo standpoint, it’s hard to make really good pictures when not much is happening. In the way of action, things were very slow last night. 

Still, we’re looking to tell the story of the game and to capture the atmosphere and feel inside the stadium, so that’s what I’ve tried to post here. 

Here’s hoping things go better tonight for game two! And for less TV air time for this photographer than last night.

“Shadows creep across the Green Monster at Fenway Park during the 100th year Anniversary game against the New York Yankees Friday, April 20, 2012.”

Last Friday, Fenway Park celebrated it’s 100th Anniversary with an elaborate pre-game ceremony followed by a game against the New York Yankees. The game itself was quite anticlimactic, ending in a pretty bad loss for the Red Sox, but that was definitely overshadowed by the magnitude of the milestone this ballpark had reached.

I was honored to be a small part of the day, and I was thrilled to witness this important moment in baseball history. Johnny Pesky, Carl Yastrzemski, Bobby Doerr, Jim Rice, Pedro Martinez, Nomar Garciaparra, Jason Varitek, Tim Wakefield, and Terry Francona were just a few of the over 200 Boston Red Sox alumni from all generations that were on hand to celebrate at Fenway. What a sight.

I shot the pre-game ceremony from the first base photo pit, and had a blast. It’s easily one of my best memories from my time working in baseball. 

And as chaotic and busy as the day was leading up to the ceremony, I learned a lot about the logistics of shooting big-time events like these. There’s lots of planning that goes into organizing a huge corral of pro photographers on hand, and being part of that planning process was a valuable experience for me. 

There’s so much more I could say, but I think I’ll let the images do the talking. Click the photos to enlarge, if you’d like! And, check the Boston Red Sox Facebook Page to view their Timeline cover photo shot by yours truly.

I’d love to hear your thoughts about this milestone, the ceremony, the recent Red Sox performance, these photos, or anything else!
