Wow.  Talk about a World Series for the ages, the 2011 World Series proved to be one of the most exciting and entertaining World Series ever.  I’m still recovering, which is why my Game Seven blog is a bit late in getting out.  Nothing like coming home and catching up on being a father with […]

After the Rangers defeated the Cardinals in Game Four of the 2011 World Series, we knew there would be no clinching game in Texas, so Game 5 would be the season finale at Rangers Ballpark.  And for the third consecutive night the weather was spectacular, which for guys like me who live in the midwest, […]

It was once again a picture perfect night for baseball in Arlington as the Rangers and Cardinals readied for Game for Game Four of the 2011 World Series. Game Four was the complete opposite of Game Three.  It was all about pitching, specifically the pitching of Rangers southpaw Derek Holland.  Holland spun eight innings of […]

The 2011 World Series returned to Arlington Texas for Game Three.  It was familiar territory for me, having spent a few days there last October, culminating with the San Francisco Giants exciting run to the World Championship when they defeated the Rangers in five games. This year Game Three can only be described in one […]

Upon arriving at Rangers Ballpark, fan optimism heading into Game 4 of the 2010 World Series was high.  After the Rangers offense finally came around during Game 3, the feeling was the Rangers were finally back on track and ready to even things up.

Everyone needs a break now and then.  While there are obviously more mainstream ways to take a vacation, for me there is one sure way to cleanse the mind for a week or so every August.  I hop on my Harley and head for the hills.  The Black Hills of South Dakota, that is.  This […]

Following Omar-A Tribute to Luis Aparicio

One of the many reasons I love my job as the White Sox team photographer is that I never know from day to day what new and unusual assignments might come my way.  I think many people categorize a team photographers job as that of just shooting game action.  While the game action aspect is […]
