Another long one last night! A few blown leads, lead changes, game tying hits, and twelve innings later, I actually got a few nice action images.

This game’s “Thing I Learned”: Stay focused in the late innings! Pictures are waiting to be made.

Not too much action from this game, but as I went through my edits, I found that these two work nicely as a pair.

This game’s “Thing I Learned”: Always keep an eye out during pitching changes. There are often some good candid moments like these waiting to be shot.

I had a few hours to rest and clear my head after my extremely tolling and difficult (jokes) shoot with Darth Vader the morning of this game, so I came out with lots of energy and had a good night shooting. 

Despite the Red Sox managing to lose after being one strike away from winning the game, I was down low when Boston’s new spark plug shortstop Pedro Ciriaco hit his first Major League home run. 

This game’s “Thing I Learned”: Never assume the game is over until the last out is recorded. 

Also, does anyone have any thoughts about proposals at pro sports stadiums? Romantic? Overrated? Really corny?
