It was just another game. Another rainy night. Possibly another runaway game for the Texas Rangers.
An early two-run home run by Texas Rangers slugger Josh Hamilton put a smile on photographers faces as easy pictures were made. But then he blasted a two-run homer again, again, and again. The night went from ordinary to extraordinary.
After Hamilton's second home run, I had a feeling something was happening, so I positioned myself on the concourse to get a better angle for his probable third. Then he crushed his third.
And then, I knew if he cranked another, a frame needed to be made with the wide angle in the dugout. So I camped inside third photo well and waited for history to be made. Goodbye, number four.
Like Hamilton or not, that's good baseball. That was a tremendous performance. Baseball fans should applaud the effort as they did at Oriole Park at Camden Yards.
The ironic thing was that I was going to blog before this happened about shooting pictures early that tell a story early in the game, but then are never seen. Thus being this image which was never moved Monday night due to a Rangers huge win.
Now it's back to "The Yard" to see if Hamilton can crush five home runs tonight. That is, if it ever stops raining.
