Take me out to the home game (sans Cracker Jacks).

8 04 2009

Let me just come out to everyone and say I know squat about almost all professional sports (I filled out my first college basketball bracket. If me picking Ohio State to win doesn’t tell you anything about my sports knowledge, I don’t know what will).

So when I was given a sports photo assignment from my photojournalism class, I was a bit nervous. I covered a baseball game this past Saturday for the Pirates. Two hours, a wicked sunburn on my right forearm and a couple hundred frames later, I knew I had two pretty good frames (available below. Click for enlarged view). I don’t want to brag, but I think I did pretty well for my first sports photo assignment. I wasn’t assigned a photo assignment for the paper but the photo editor ended up putting my shot on the front page of the Sports section anyway.
