I shot the Dodger vs. Giants game last night at Dodger Stadium. People don't realize how much work is involved with shooting pictures for publications or wire services... but I will save that post for another day.
I arrived three hours before game time to set up and secure a spot in the third base photographers "well" - located at field level next to the Dodger dugout. I walked around as the Dodgers participated in batting practice, shooting random photos of the players exercising, chatting and playing catch. I saw ex-Dodger great Don Newcombe on the field. He picked up three baseballs and walked over to a group of fans standing near the field. He randomly selected three lucky people and tossed each of them a baseball. I am pretty sure they had no idea who he was... but if you are going to get a baseball.... that is the way to do it. If you don't know who he is... here is a link to his accomplishments.
