Indiana State Shines On The Big Stage
Last night at Victory Field the Indiana State bats came alive as they pounded Butler 11-4. The Sycamores played a great game on the big stage with the city of Indianapolis looking down on them. The team came out and pounded 17 hits on a day when it seemed like the big hit would always come.
Larrison Shuts Them Down
On a staff day you know that you are going to see a few pitchers. When starter Geremy Guerrero only went two innings I thought that I would see quite a few. Donnie Ames came in though and went three and two thirds innings giving the Sycamores a much needed outing. He picked up the win on the day. Ethan Larrison then came in and pitched three and a third innings of no-hit ball to get the save. Any momentum that Butler may have thought was on their side was gone when Larrison entered the game.
Shooting At Victory Field
It has taken a couple of years for me to enjoy shooting at this park again. Last year when I shot at Victory Field I was constantly reminded of just how bad this business can be at times. It really made me not want to go back to what is a great place to photograph baseball. I genuinely looked forward to the game last night, and had a great time shooting it.
It’s Ballpark Season
I love this little slogan out on the right field wall of Victory Field. So far I have shot three games at the ballpark for three different clients, and I have found a way to work it into every gallery. It really felt like ballpark season last night as the temperatures were perfect. Hopefully they stay that way this weekend for the Indiana State softball senior weekend. It is hard to believe that softball season is already ending. I did not make it to one Purdue game this year. Baseball for me though is just beginning. This stretch run of the college season is always fun to photograph.
More Baseball Portraits
Part of the fun of baseball is the extra time that you have to photograph other things. If you use your time wisely you can have a cool photo gallery. This year I have been trying to make in game portraits of players. Yesterday though my favorite portrait type shot of the day came during pre game. I was walking through the dugout and saw the scene above. These are the moments that are fun to capture. The light was working in my favor as well.
