Well, that was one of the craziest, weirdest games I’ve ever covered, but after a strange and complicated series of events, the Boston Red Sox are the champions of the American League East Division in 2016!
After a tight seven innings of shut out baseball, the Red Sox finally broke through over the Yankees on a two RBI double from Mookie Betts to give Boston the lead. Then in the ninth, just as the Red Sox were ready to celebrate on the field, the Yankees mounted a crazy come back, capped by a walk-off grand slam by Mark Teixiera to win the game. While the Yankees celebrated on the field, the Red Sox walked off knowing that they had already clinched the division with the Toronto loss to Baltimore that happened just minutes before.
A very strange way to win the division, for sure, but what this team has accomplished this year has been incredible, and the guys still celebrated with champagne in the clubhouse.
Here are photos from all of it! This is one I won’t forget, for sure.
Here are some images from last night’s Red Sox loss to the Baltimore Orioles, as well as a few selects from a brief portrait session before the game with newly voted Minor League Player of the Year, Yoan Moncada.
More baseball tonight.
The Red Sox came up with a big win yesterday in game two of the series against the Tampa bay Rays, to win the series. The woman in the first image is Babe Ruth’s daughter, Julia Ruth Stevens. She threw out the ceremonial first pitch. Pretty cool! The team looks for a sweep today as they head into the All-Star Break!
I’ve found it very difficult to keep up with my blog this home stand in a timely matter! It’s that time of the season where things seem to just happen nonstop, and it’s hard to stay afloat. I’m finally getting to the rest of the games I shot this week. Here is the first, against the Tampa Bay Rays. The Red Sox welcomed new Boston Celtics draft pick, Al Horford, to throw out the ceremonial first pitch.
Here are some images from the first of a three game series between the Boston Red Sox and the Toronto Blue Jays. A frustrating one for the Red Sox!
Here are some favorites of mine from the past few days of workouts at JetBlue Park during the Boston Red Sox 2016 Spring Training campaign.
It’s been a grind down here, but fun to be outside shooting these various workouts. We’ve also pulled together several really well executed portrait shoots with the players, including our annual photo day, which was likely our best one ever. I included a few portraits I shot in this gallery too.
I’m looking forward to my last week down here in sunny Florida! More to come.
Here are photos from the 40-year anniversary and reunion of the 1975 Boston Red Sox team.
I’m a week late to post these, but I wanted to make sure that I didn’t forget about them. I obviously wasn’t around for the 1975 World Series run, but I understand the significance of it, and know that it was and continues to be a big deal to a lot of people.
It’s neat to be up close to so many heroes of the past – Tiant, Fisk, Yastrzemski, and Rice to name a few. Shooting things like this remind me that baseball, and sport in general, is timeless.
A great game by center fielder Mookie Betts and a Red Sox victory helped make for a great night.
We’re back at it at Fenway Park, and into the second half of the 2014 baseball season. The Sox are off to a good start, having won the first two games they’ve played. Here are some grabs from a good one last night. It was slow, but we got some good emotion to shoot toward the end of the game.
Last game of the series is today!
It’s nice to be back at it at Fenway Park after a few weeks of shooting out of the country, and it was even nicer to be welcomed back with an exciting walk-off win to shoot. After giving up a two run lead in the ninth inning, the Sox bounced right back and got it done in the tenth, giving them their second straight walk-off, third this home stand, and eighth this season.
Let’s hope we can keep it going!

After losing ten straight games, the Red Sox turned things around and got hot just at the right time, rattling off a seven game winning streak which included five wins at Fenway Park.
Here is our “Top Shots” multimedia piece wrapping up our best photos from the homestand, as well as the few selects from the final game against the Tampa Bay Rays.
