Here’s how I got the bruise on my shin

The photo above of prospect Cory Rasmus is the one I wanted, and the photo below was what I was trying to avoid.
Normally I don’t get directly behind any catcher when a pitcher is warming up. I try not to distract the pitcher, and I try to avoid any unfortunate circumstances that might result in a passed ball — a passed ball, that is, that fails to get past me.
But in trying to remove pitching coach Jim Czajkowski from the photo (sorry, Jim) I got too close behind the catcher, violating my own rules, and a Rasmus breaking ball broke into the dirt and then into my shin.
Luckily, it was a glancing blow. However, I have a conversation piece now, and it’s interesting to talk about it. Still, I hope it goes away soon.

Ouch! I hope it feels better soon!


Hey, I clicked it! Great shot! – Mark

Tom, just want you to know that I have been reading your blog since I found it recently. Not always commenting, but definitely reading! Photography is a hobby for me, but in my fantasy life I could make a living of it (I wish). Keep posting those great shots!
