Spring = baseball
Sports is in my blood, just like photography. In my previous career, I was a professional sports writer for 11 years in the newspaper business. Along the way I covered everything from Texas high school football to the NBA and the NFL, including Brett Favre’s amazing 2009 season with the Minnesota Vikings.
Living here in Tampa, there are a handful of baseball teams that come to this area for spring training. I took my son to the opening game between the Pittsburgh Pirates and the Toronto Blue Jays. (Unfortunately, my favorite team, the Dodgers, no longer come to Florida for spring training.) I wanted to enjoy the sunshine and the atmosphere that day, so I took only a few shots from the stands. Here are a couple.
