Baseball at The Trop...

August 03, 2015  •  Leave a Comment

It's been a while since I went on a vacation, but who knew that my vacation to Orlando would include shooting the Tampa Bay Rays...?
 

After surviving the almost two hour drive from Orlando to Tampa, my family and I were greeted by the nicest staff I've ever encountered at a Major League ballpark. Before, during and after the game, the staff was very friendly and always happy to help (and to guide a first-time shooter at The Trop the right ways to go...).
 

And as a photographer, it was a dream to shoot in a dome, because I didn't have to deal with the sun, or changing lighting conditions. It wasn't the absolute best lighting, but at least I didn't have to worry about it.
 

But... on to the game...
 

Being it was the last game before the All-Star break, the two representatives from the Rays were presented with their All-Star jerseys.

And All-Star Houston Astros' second baseman Jose Altuve was a joy to watch, in the field, and at the plate, hitting a home run in the top of the 4th inning.

But it was Tampa that came out on top... in the bottom of the 5th inning, Grady Sizemore hits a force-out ground ball, but Jake Elmore scores on the play, making the score 4-3, which held up to the end.
 


 

I had a great time shooting the game, and I have to say once again, thanks to the staff of The Trop for being so awesome during my time there.
