Friday was a rare day for me at the ballpark. I had a request from my agency to take a posed shot of a first-round-draft player — which I did — and then I had a request from three players to take their photo in the dugout.

It’s a rare day when I shoot anything posed. I can count those days in the single digits.

But when the players ask, I rarely decline. Then the question comes: “Where can we see the photo?”

I gave the URL to my website; I hope they find it okay.
