The Chicago Cubs Win the 2016 World Series

The Chicago Cubs Win the 2016 World Series

The Chicago Cubs ended a 108 year championship drought, defeating the Cleveland Indians 8-7 in ten innings on an unusually warm and sometimes rainy night at Progressive Field in Cleveland. This Game Seven will most certainly rank up there as one of the most exciting (not necessarily the best played) deciding games in Postseason history. […]

On Assignment – Game 6 2016 World Series – Cubs vs Indians

On Assignment - Game 6 2016 World Series - Cubs vs Indians

On an unusually balmy November night in Cleveland (73 degrees at game time), the Chicago Cubs won a “must win” Game Six of the 2016 World Series to earn a chance to become the first team since 1985 to come back from a 3 game deficit to win the World Series. The Cubs struck first off […]

On Assignment – 2016 World Series Games 3 & 4 – Indians at Cubs

On Assignment - 2016 World Series Games 3 & 4 - Indians at Cubs

With the Series tied one game apiece, the scene switched to Wrigley Field. There was a buzz in the air as our taxi dropped us off near the scoreboard at the corner of Waveland and Sheffield 5 hours before the game.  The place was electric! It had been 71 years since a World Series game […]

My 25th World Series – A Fall Classic for the Ages – Cubs v Indians Games 1 & 2

My 25th World Series - A Fall Classic for the Ages - Cubs v Indians Games 1 & 2

The 2016 World Series marks my 25th Fall Classic… How ironic that my silver anniversary World Series is one of such historic significance! I’ve seen some great moments in my previous 24 Fall Classics, particularly the White Sox World Championship run in 2005.  Joe Carter’s walk off, Kirby, the Earth Quake Series, Derek (Mr. November) Jeter… wow! Now […]

On Assignment – The Royals Win the 2015 World Series

On Assignment - The Royals Win the 2015 World Series

Exactly 368 days after the San Francisco Giants denied the Kansas City Royals a chance win the 2014 World Series, the Royals took care of unfinished business and crushed the New York Mets in Game Five of the 2015 World Series to become World Champions for the first time since 1985. Crushed is an understatement. The Royals did […]

On Assignment – Games Three and Four – 2015 World Series

On Assignment - Games Three and Four - 2015 World Series

Welcome from the Big Apple! Why a combined 2015 World Series Games 3 and 4 recap? Because, quite honestly, even though the Mets had a big night in Game 3, there were, at least from where I was positioned in the “outside first” photo box, no pictures that really stood out. Baseball can be like that. Some […]

On Assignment – Game Two – 2015 World Series

On Assignment - Game Two - 2015 World Series

Game Two of the 2015 World Series came and went Wednesday night, and unlike the thriller that went down the previous night (or shall I correctly say earlier that morning), Game Two didn’t contain nearly the drama and excitement that Game One provided. In short, “pictures” were in short supply… Unless you were a Royals fan of course. EVERY […]

On Assignment - Game One - 2015 World Series

14 innings!! What a memorable World Series Game One! It had it all… rain drama, an inside-the-park home run, great defense, closers giving up the lead, and of course, a walk off moment… The day started quite wet… and the forecast wasn’t good.  But somehow, someway, Mother Nature decided to give in and miraculously, allow […]

On Assignment – The Giants Win the 2014 World Series!

On Assignment - The Giants Win the 2014 World Series!

Game Seven of the 2014 World Series provided some welcome drama to the 2014 Fall Classic that was lacking in Games Five and Six. Should Alex Gordon have tried to score on his 9th inning, two-out single turned “three bagger”, thanks to Gregor Blanco? I’m going to venture a guess that question may be asked in the Kansas […]

On Assignment - Game 6 - 2014 World Series

Bring on a Game Seven!!  The Kansas City Royals made that a certainty, with authority, as young Yordano Ventura shut down the San Francisco Giants Tuesday night at Kaufmann Stadium. A seven run second inning didn’t hurt either! With the suspense gone early, in a game devoid of pictures, we all wished the old “slaughter […]

On Assignment - Game 5 - 2014 World Series

San Francisco Giants ace Madison Bumgarner was THE story of Game Five of the 2014 World Series, hurling a complete game, 5-0 shutout to give the Giants a three games to two lead as the Series heads back to the midwest for Game Six Tuesday night. Since there was no “clinch” possible Sunday night, I was able to […]

I’m goin’ to Kansas City, Kansas City, here I come… The Giants made that a certainty  with a resounding comeback against the Kansas City Royals in Game Four of the 2014 World Series.  But since this is a recap of Games Three AND Four, I’ll start my recap with Game Three. Makes sense, right? Opening ceremonies […]

My 23rd Fall Classic assignment kicked off in mid-America at Kaufmann Stadium as the Kansas City Royals, who had waited 29 years to get back into baseball’s postseason, hosted the San Fransicso Giants, a team who has been to the World Series in three of the last five years! Kansas City, on the west end of the “Show […]

On Assignment - The Boston Red Sox Win the 2013 World Series

It’s officially over… My 2013 baseball season officially ended Wednesday night when the Boston Red Sox defeated the St. Louis Cardinals in 6 games to win their third world championship in 10 years. Preparing for a possible clinch game is different than preparing for a “typical” World Series game.  Our MLB Photos leader, Jessica Foster, […]

On Assignment - Game 5 - 2013 World Series

From a photo standpoint, Game Five of the 2013 World Series was a let down.  After the exciting endings of Game Three and Four, Game Five was a pitchers duel.  And when there’s a pitchers duel going down, generally, the photos are few and far between.  Jon Lester and Adam Wainwright both pitched very well.

Wow!  Two crazy endings to World Series games in two consecutive nights!  Before I place the cart in front of the horse, let me recap Game Four as seen photographed from my vantage point in the inside third base position at Busch Stadium. We had six photographers shoehorned into a space that during the regular […]

Game Three of the 2013 World Series brought me back to St. Louis, a town where I have seemingly spent more time this past month than in my own home town! The photo work room from which I’ve based operations out of at Busch Stadium was a bit more crowded than it was when I […]

On Assignment - Game 2 - 2013 World Series - This One Hurt

I can only use one word to describe Game Two of the 2013 World Series…. Painful. Not just painful for the legions of Red Sox faithful shoehorned into Fenway Park on a chilly autumn evening after the Red Sox let a 2-1 lead evaporate into a 4-2 Cardinal win, but especially painful for yours truly.

Wow! With Hurricane Sandy threatening to throw the World Series into a lengthy delay, the San Francisco Giants rose to the occasion and pulled out an exciting, ten inning 4-3 victory to win the 2012 World Series, returning the Commissioners Trophy back to the City by the Bay after a short one year hiatus.

The San Francisco Giants continued their winning ways, defeating the Detroit Tigers 2-0 in Game Two of the 2012 World Series at A,T& T Park Thursday night. Pre-game activities were much more subdued for Game Two, which was fine with me!  Of course, Fox made sure that one of their own took center stage, and […]

My All-Star break this year was anything but as I was offered and gladly accepted the assignment to be Major League Baseball’s lead photographer at the All-Star Game in Kansas City.  There is SO much more going on during the All-Star Game festivities than just a baseball game, especially when you’re working for the League […]
