Here are a few quick photos from the Red Sox Foundation’s visits to Northeastern University and Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center last week. At Northeastern, the Foundation was hosting a fundraiser, and entertaining students with the World Series trophies and mascot, Wally.
At Beth Israel, this year’s class of Red Sox Scholars was given a tour of a few wings of the hospital, including the NICU and the Center for Minimally Invasive Surgery.
We had a good game yesterday at Fenway Park, as Jon Lester struck out fifteen batters and Jonny Gomes hit a grand slam to lead the Red Sox to a win over the Oakland Athletics.
A nice day for pictures – good light and good action!
I’m just now finding the time to get caught up on photos from the weekend. A rainy day on Friday made for a nice night off but a busy double header on Saturday.
The Red Sox and Angels split the two games, but because these two teams are so heavy offensively, each game lasted well over four hours. That’s a lot of baseball for one day.
I shot the first game from third base, and the second game from both third and first base.
Images from Sunday to come soon!
A return to normalcy after a crazy game on Sunday. Here are a few Memorial Day features from Fenway Park.
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!
Last Friday, Fenway Park celebrated it’s 100th Anniversary with an elaborate pre-game ceremony followed by a game against the New York Yankees. The game itself was quite anticlimactic, ending in a pretty bad loss for the Red Sox, but that was definitely overshadowed by the magnitude of the milestone this ballpark had reached.
I was honored to be a small part of the day, and I was thrilled to witness this important moment in baseball history. Johnny Pesky, Carl Yastrzemski, Bobby Doerr, Jim Rice, Pedro Martinez, Nomar Garciaparra, Jason Varitek, Tim Wakefield, and Terry Francona were just a few of the over 200 Boston Red Sox alumni from all generations that were on hand to celebrate at Fenway. What a sight.
I shot the pre-game ceremony from the first base photo pit, and had a blast. It’s easily one of my best memories from my time working in baseball.
And as chaotic and busy as the day was leading up to the ceremony, I learned a lot about the logistics of shooting big-time events like these. There’s lots of planning that goes into organizing a huge corral of pro photographers on hand, and being part of that planning process was a valuable experience for me.
There’s so much more I could say, but I think I’ll let the images do the talking. Click the photos to enlarge, if you’d like! And, check the Boston Red Sox Facebook Page to view their Timeline cover photo shot by yours truly.
I’d love to hear your thoughts about this milestone, the ceremony, the recent Red Sox performance, these photos, or anything else!
The last several days have been a whirlwind for baseball in Boston, so I’m just now finding the time to post everything I’ve documented recently. I apologize for the delay!
I’ll start with these images from last Thursday, when Fenway Park welcomed all fans in for an open house in honor of the 100th anniversary celebration planned for the following day. I think it was a really neat idea, and it certainly provided lots of opportunities for good pictures.
It was an extremely busy day in which I found myself shooting nonstop from 9 in the morning to 4 in the afternoon. To keep sane between photographing autograph session after autograph session, I went out periodically and shot features. The interactions between people, both young and old, and the architectural elements of Fenway itself, made for the most interesting photos, so that’s what I tried to focus on.
Here are a few from the day. Click the photos to enlarge, if you’d like!
