Shot a lot of "Jubo", dejections, "Bang-Bang" plays, and even a little crying during the last two weeks of high school baseball & softball playoff games. Kinda nice to see the same teams a few times and get to know who the hot players are too, and of course utilizing a 3rd. remote body mounted opposite my shooting position, for a second view of home plate. Some late nights with lots of editing & web gallery posting, but all in all, well worth it for covering sports the way I like to at any level.
