The baseball season was coming to an end and I haven’t seen my nephew, Michael, play this year. My younger brother, Matthew, called me up and told me Michael was pitching. It’s been at least 3 or 4 years since I shot my nephew playing baseball and that’s way too long. As soon as I got there old memories came flashing back of my younger days playing baseball on the same field. It didn’t take long to get “warmed up” with my camera gear and find a couple of good shooting spots.
Michael did a great job pitching for his first year as a starting pitcher. Matthew taught him well. Pump fastballs and changes speeds, but under no circumstances was he allowed to throw “junk.” I am very proud of you, Michael! Not only are you a good ball player, but more importantly, you are a great student in school and a wonderful person. I am proud to call you my nephew.
Because Michael is all those things, I wanted to create a special surprise for him. He thinks I was just there to “take pictures.” This is the poster I created from a series of photos. Surprise! We hope you like it, Michael. We love you!
