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!
The Red Sox welcome the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim to town with a win in the first of this nine-game home stand. Just before an hour long rain delay, David Ortiz hit home run number 522 of his career, moving him ahead of Red Sox legend Ted Williams and into sole possession of 19th place on the all-time home run list.
I’m finally finding time to catch up on the end of the Red Sox homestand from last week. It’s been a whirlwind couple of days of travel, and as I write this post from a hotel room in San Diego, I am feeling exhausted. I have time to kill before a red eye flight back to Boston, so I’m trying to get up to speed on lingering work so I can sleep on the plane tonight.
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!
