Seeing a Game at Kokomo Municipal Stadium

Last night I shot a game for the Kokomo Jackrabbits of the Prospect League. This is a new team playing in a new stadium. How new is the stadium? It actually is still under construction. The minor construction around the park does nothing to take away from the baseball though. The current situation reminds me of seeing games at Coveleski Stadium in 2011. Every time I made it back to the park they had just completed something else. Each trip showed me a new part of the stadium. I have not seen the final product in South Bend yet, but I hear that it is well worth a little dust. This is a great new field that has the looks of a great park. This is on par with many minor league fields.

Shooting for the Jackrabbits

Last night was not my typical baseball night. I spent the first two innings in the camera well, but then spent the rest of the game capturing some scenes from inside the park. I was there to get baseball action, but also to get atmosphere. The shot above was sort of a lucky one. I sat behind this group because they all had the same jerseys on. Just after I took my seat the opposing team made a pitching change, and the group took a selfie. I was in the right place at the right time, and I made a photo that I liked. I will post some of my action shots tomorrow as I sort through them. This was the first of a few trips to the ballpark in Kokomo, and I can’t wait to get back to shoot the boys in July.
