Spring = baseball

Sports is in my blood, just like photography.  In my previous career, I was a professional sports writer for 11 years in the newspaper business.  Along the way I covered everything from Texas high school football to the NBA and the NFL, including Brett Favre's amazing 2009 season with the Minnesota Vikings. Living here in Tampa, there are a handful of baseball teams that come to this area for spring training.  I took my son to the opening game between the Pittsburgh Pirates and the Toronto Blue Jays.  (Unfortunately, my favorite team, the Dodgers, no longer come to Florida for spring training.)  I wanted to enjoy the sunshine and the atmosphere that day, so I took only a few shots from the stands. Here are a couple.
