My Ten Favorite Images From the 2016 Indy Indians Season
I you have read this blog this year you know that I started the summer off working with the Indy Indians. The season was supposed to be a great one, but shortly into the season the arrangement changed and I stepped away from the situation. It was a fun start to the year though, and I made some photos that I liked. Below are ten images from the first month of the season that I really enjoyed.
10. I made the picture above on Opening Day. I think that it made the countdown because of the feeling behind it. I was Opening Day, and even batting practice is exciting on Opening Day. Here Dan Gamache hits one towards the Indianapolis skyline.
9. One of my favorite players to photograph during my short time with the Indians was Alen Hansen. He has a dirty jersey from sliding into first base earlier in the game. You can view that photo below. Here he runs up on a chopper to field it. He just did everything with such a flair that it made it easy to make good photographs of him. As with most of the guys on this countdown, Alen made a few appearances with the Pirates during the course of the season.
8. Jared Hughes made some rehab appearances with the Indy Indians. At the time I was contributing for MiLB as well so this was a good news story. This photo made the photos of the week for MiLB.com that week I think more on the strength of who it was over the type of photo that it was. I do like the eyes over the shoulder though so it makes the countdown.
