Kokomo Loses a Heartbreaker to Hannibal

A couple of nights ago I was back in Kokomo to photograph the Kokomo Jackrabbits again. With my blue moon post yesterday it put me a bit behind here so I will have already photographed the second game of this series by the time this post comes out. With the playoffs on the line every game is important, and losing 2-1 is hard to take. That itself makes it hard, but if you had seen all of the hard hit balls right at someone in crucial times last night you would know why I wrote heartbreaking loss. With men on the Jackrabbits would smoke the ball only to have it be right at a fielder. Some nights the ball falls your way, and some nights what happened to Kokomo will happen.

Watching Kokomo Municipal Stadium Come Alive

I have been shooting at Kokomo Municipal Stadium for just over a month now. Every time I go back to the park there is something new. Thursday night they premiered a couple of new features. They now have a full bar in left field that does not have a cut off time. In fact the bar was still open for about an hour and a half after the game was over. They also have a very cool new BBQ stand in left field as well. Thursday when the light was not so great on the field I moved around to make some photos of the stadium. It really is a great stadium that will only get better with time.

Here are a couple of other photos from the game that I liked. You can find a full gallery of images from the game on my website here.
