I’m prepared to take any old lucky break

Drive, Action 7416 500px.jpg

       June 14, 2009: Center fielder Anthony Scelfo (9) of the Bowling Green 
       Hot Rods makes a catch in front of an appropriate billboard during 
       a game against the Greenville Drive at Fluor Field at the West End in

Much as I’d like to, I can’t really take much credit for this photo. It just fell into my lap sort of by accident.
Oh, sure, I was concentrating on the outfield activity, and sure, I was trying for a good-catch photo. But the whole idea of the action replicating the billboard was just good luck. 
Of course, when I saw it in the computer I quickly pulled it out of the batch and posted it to MinorLeagueBaseball.com, where it became one of the latest Photos of the Week.
Now that I think of it, maybe more than accident was at play here. My favorite quote of all time is that of Louis Pasteur: “Chance favors the prepared mind.”
I’m prepared to take a lucky break anywhere I can find it.


Maybe a little divine intervention? 🙂


Personal request – can you grab a shot of recent-signee Shawn Chacon of the Triple-A Sacramento River Cats (A’s)? I’d love a photo for our site when you get a chance. Thanks.

Love to do that for ‘ya, but I stick to the east coast and don’t get a chance to shoot the Pacific Coast League . . . I would if I could.

No worries… is there anyone you can contact to see if they can o it? Thanks for the thought nonetheless.
