Pin It

The smell of a worn leather glove.

The cheering of the crowd at a stand-up double.

Sno-cones for sale at the concession stand.

This is what summer is all about.

I was recently invited by the Cubs and the Mets (no, not those Cubs and Mets) to take shots of individuals—as well as team—at their most recent baseball games at the little league fields this week. It was a fun experience and it was great to see these boys cheering each other on, whether or not they were doing well as individuals.

These, by no means, are not all of the best photographs I took; however, since I don’t know all of the parents involved, I did not post any shots which clearly showed faces of the players which I do not have permission to use images.

Just know that there were others…and sometimes, that just has to be enough.

Baseball does bring a smile to my face but I do spend a little time at the ball field.

Loved the dialogue and the photos. What a talent! Dh & I loved the images you caught. We are so busy during games, it's hard to catch those precious expressions. But we do feel the emotions, and viewing these pics heightens our fond memories. Thanks for sharing.

Awww. Great pics. Loved the huddle shot, and the "blazing guns," and just all of their cheeky little expressions. Awesome job.

L - I imagine you do spend quite a bit of time there!

A - Thanks.

M - It was fun to watch. Taking the photos was even better.

D - Thanks...I really wanted to post a few others. Oh well, no big thing.

S - Thanks for stopping by. Glad you liked the images, too.

L - It's always fun when you know some of the players, too. The 'running' shot is one of my personal faves...his parents were in love with that one.
