Here are some shots from Tuesday’s pre-game ceremonies honoring former Red Sox pitcher, Tim Wakefield, who retired before the start of this season. 

They’re some nice images, I think, which is good because the rest of the game was miserable (even though the Sox won) and I didn’t make a single picture I was happy with. Something about roaming Fenway Park in the pouring rain had me down. 

This game’s “Thing I Learned”: Don’t forget to go photograph kids in the Fenway Park family room playing with sea creatures from the New England Aquarium. That’s what I did! Luckily I got a reminder call and went and got some nice stuff.
