Although the opening month of baseball in Rochester has not been kind to our Red Wings, photographically speaking, it's been a great one for me. The Wings opened the season in Buffalo on April 4th. I took a road trip with a couple of wonderful Red Wings front office staffers and my lens captured the first glimpse of our 2013 team. New comers Chris Colabello, Oswaldo Arcia and Brandon Boggs bring new excitement while returning players Brian Dinkelman, Clete Thomas and P.J. Walters look to continue to contribute this season. April also saw pitching prospect Kyle Gibson return to the Frontier Field mound after a long recovery from Tommy John surgery.
I'm pleased and proud to say that this month, Minor League Baseball selected an image I made of Red Wings second baseman Eric Farris turning a double play, as one of their Photos of the Week for April 24th! http://www.milb.com/photos/gallery.jsp?content_id=45564194&sid=milb.
I wish to thank Scott Pitoniak and Curt Smith for having me as a guest on their wonderful weekly baseball radio show this month, A Talk in the Park. Among other things, I discussed the joys of being a professional baseball photographer. It was fun!
Wow! It's been a busy and exciting month - probably explains why I haven't had time to write on this blog. Anyway, the Wings have unfortunately gotten off to a slow start this April but they've finished the month strong. I'm looking forward to May!
