05-08-2012 Don Newcombe (Dodger Legend)

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.
