Boston Red Sox Photos: Thursday, March 28, 2019 Vs. Seattle Mariners.

Here’s a gallery of my work from yesterday’s Red Sox 2019 Opening Day game against the Seattle Mariners at T-Mobile Park. A tough one for us, but still a fun day of shooting at a great ballpark in a beautiful city! I’m headed back to Boston now to prepare for our home opener at Fenway next week.

The Red Sox arrived in Seattle, Washington after traveling from Arizona. Ahead of Opening Day, some members of the team headed to T-Mobile park for workouts yesterday. Here are some behind the scenes moments from the trip. 

Happy to be in this beautiful city for Opening Day today!

Boston Red Sox Photos: Opening Day vs. Tampa Bay Rays.

I’m en route back to Boston from Tampa, so I wanted to get these photos from yesterday’s Opening Day out before things get too crazy. It was a wild game yesterday that didn’t go the Red Sox way, but it was fun to shoot nonetheless.

Baseball is back in Boston! Yesterday was a long, busy day for the Red Sox photography department, but also a day filled with amazing photo opportunities.

The Red Sox paid tribute to the New England Patriots, who won their fourth Super Bowl this year. Quarterback Tom Brady, Head Coach Bill Belichick, Team President Jonathan Kraft, and Team Owner Robert Kraft were introduced on field. The Red Sox also inducted ALS Survivor Pete Frates as an official member of the team, and recognized local kids as part of the new Calling All Kids initiative.

During the game, it was the Mookie Betts show, as he hits a three-run home run, robbed a home run in center field, and displayed some heads up base running. An exciting pre-game ceremony and a 9-4 Red Sox win made for a great start to the season!

I’ll be sure to post often as the season goes on – my fourth for the Red Sox, sixth for MLB, and first as a full-time Staff Photographer.

It’s hard to believe time has passed so quickly, but yesterday marked the start of my fourth season working as a photographer in Major League Baseball. 

I always love Opening Day, and yesterday at Fenway Park was no exception. We caught a break from the freezing cold that we’ve had up here in Boston, and had a beautiful, sunny, warm afternoon to work in. That, along with all the other familiar sights and sounds that make baseball so perfect, was rejuvenating to say the least. 

It made for a long day, beginning with a 5:00 A.M. arrival at the ballpark and ending with night class and a few hours of editing in the lab at Boston University, but a great day nonetheless. 

Here are some images I made from the pre-game ceremonies and the general scene around Fenway. I threw in a bit of orange and black as well.

It was fantastic to see all the Boston photographers back in the same place, and a pleasure to meet some new ones. Plus, the Red Sox took on my hometown heroes, the Baltimore Orioles.

My two favorite teams and a fresh start. A dream come true for this guy.

Here’s to another season!
