New Era Cap Baseball Classic (Pics Added, Last Pics in this thread)

Discussion in 'Sports Photography' started by Markb, Jul 20, 2008.

  1. Just got back from the New Era Cap Classic in Buffalo this weekend and I thought that I had to get a least one shot up before I turned to more mundane things like work and laundry.....

    One of our games was in Dunn Tire Park (Pilot Field) and I was able to capture a spectacular catch about 350 plus yards out in the outfield. Of course, it is cropped a bit:

    100453167.

    I've got quite a few pictures to work through from this weekend, so I'll be posting a few more in this thread. Stay Tuned!

    Here's a couple more:

    Connor led with this close ball on bat, the ball is still compressed:

    Tomas was the lead pitcher:

    100471138.

    Before the game, the team pitched in to get the field ready (back home, you can't find a ballplayer when you need them to remove the tarp) with some help from the opposing team

    100471122.

    And rolling things up as it were:

    100471126.

    And even the team manager had a 'major' league moment, but for that picture, you'll have to go to the Sports Challenge thread:wink:.

    Very good images Mark, the first one was caught at the perfect moment. I'll be here waiting to see more.

    Great catches! Thanks for sharing. Looking forward to seeing more.
     
  8. Thanks Wendy. Two of the teams we played were from Pennsylvania, and I think one of them was from Pittsburgh (one was from Harrisburg). Look for another thread later today.

    I bet he loved the first one! Great timing.
     
  10. Thanks Jim.

    Brenda, thanks. Yup he loved the timing and so did the crowd. When he popped up with the ball in the glvoe, most folks were amazed/thrilled. BTW, the team we were playing from Pittsburgh won the tournament.
     
  11. Update

    FWIW, lead sports story this week in the local paper with the first shot, above the fold. (Editors being editors, the horizon is a bit crooked). Everybody happy.
