Boston Red Sox Photos: Wednesday, July 31, 2013 vs. Seattle Mariners.
Five Hours. Three Minutes. Fifteen Innings.
That’s what it took to finish last night’s game between the Boston Red Sox and the Seattle Mariners. I think this was, by time, the longest game I’ve ever shot, even though I covered an 18 inning game here last season.
The Sox have been clutch in the late-game situations this year, so knowing that we’ve had plenty of walk-off winning photos from down low, I decided to mix things up and go up high for a different vantage point. Early in the ninth inning, I went to the upper deck in left field, hoping for a walk-off win. Seven innings later, I got what I was hoping for.
Although this game went well past midnight, and I had to change my captions from July to August, it was worth the wait. The win looked really nice from my spot, and to me, there’s no better feeling than getting a good picture. Here are those photos, as well as a selection of others from throughout the night (in no particular order – I’m too sleepy still to think about it).
