Indianapolis Can’t Push Back the Tide

Last night I was back in Indy to see the Indy Indians play. It was Captain America night, and the Indians had some great jerseys on for the occasion. Things were looking good for Indy heading into the ninth. Trey Haley was in the game to close things out for Indy. A bunt into the shift followed by a walk started things off bad for the Indians. The floodgates then opened sending the crowd home unhappy. The good news is that tomorrow is another day, and Tyler Glasnow is on the mound for Indy.

Chad Kuhl

A Kuhl Customer

Yesterday was the third home start for Chad Kuhl, and the third time that I have photographed him this season. My schedule and his just seem to synch up. Once again though he came through with a quality start for the Indians. The Tide really could not seem to get a handle on him. I have only seen two members of the Tribe staff in person this year, but I do enjoy watching Chad Kuhl pitch.

The Weather Clears Just in Time For Baseball

I really did not think that the game would be played yesterday. It rained all day, and it looked like it might just keep raining. All of the projections made it look like a rough night to play baseball. At the last minute the forecast cleared up, and I made my way down to Indianapolis to photograph the game. I am glad that I did. The Captain America uniforms were pretty cool, and the overcast conditions were perfect for shooting baseball. No shadows under the hats of the players.

Bonus Photos

I had a fun night at the ballpark yesterday. Below are a few bonus photos from the night that I liked. I spent a lot of the night just sitting on certain players to photograph a diving catch. That did not happen, but in the process I made some nice fielding pictures. The photo of Captain America diving or leaping for the ball never materialized. I am still happy with my take from the game though.
