Braves to remember pitching coach Dal Canton

Got an e-mail recently from my P.R. friends with the Atlanta Braves, looking for some photos of Bruce Dal Canton. They’re planning a tribute to this longtime Braves Minor League pitching coach, who died last year, and I was happy to oblige.
Everybody in the organization admired “D.C.” He was a Major League star pitcher in his own right, but he’s probably best known as the pitching coach for the Myrtle Beach Pelicans.
He’s credited with helping move along the careers of many of Atlanta’s best picthers.
Here are a couple of the photos I sent along to the Braves. I shot the one below at Spring Training at Lake Buena Vista in 2001, using a borrowed Nikon D1, one of my first all-digital projects.

Nice photo. My thoughts go out to his family and the Braves Organization.
