Earlier this week I photographed my last basketball assignment of the season. While I am disappointed to end my run as the South Bend Tribune’s designated armpit photographer, I am glad that it’s finally baseball season. After months of cold and snow, it’ll be nice to get outside to shoot a few games in the coming weeks. Oddly enough I’ve never been a die hard fan of any particular ball club – something that probably comes from growing up in MLB-less Indiana. Despite this, I really enjoy photographing it. I’m especially looking forward to baseball assignments this season after such a long, cold and basketball-filled winter.
Here’s a quick Silver Hawks media day sportrait I shot of Arizona Diamondbacks prospect Archie Bradley earlier this week. The Diamondbacks drafted him at No. 7 overall in the 2011 MLB draft, and I doubt he’s in South Bend very long before moving up. Look forward to seeing him pitch a few times this summer at the Cove.
