Baltimore Orioles Photography: Saturday, July 16, 2011 vs. Cleveland Indians

"Baltimore Orioles starting pitcher Alfredo Simon pitches in the first inning of a baseball game against the Cleveland Indians Saturday, July 16, 2011 in Baltimore."

This was likely the slowest and fastest game I’ve ever shot. A low scoring pitchers’ duel, this game moved quickly and was over by 9:30 p.m., yet was extremely dull from a photo standpoint. There was hardly any action to shoot, so pitchers made most of my pictures. 

This game’s “Thing I Learned:” Sometimes, baseball is a game that, on nights like these, can give a photographer a remarkably lackluster set of photographs.
