Post preparation

"The Baltimore Orioles grounds crew tend the infield between innings as the Baltimore Orioles play the Toronto Blue Jays in their first game of a double header during an MLB American League baseball game at Oriole Park at Camden Yards in Baltimore, Maryland, September 24, 2012."

There is a small window of time when Summer changes to Fall and the light gets perfect.

Although what we are really seeing is the sun setting much earlier compared to the long summer days, it does make for some spectacular light - which I need to see and take advantage of before the sun starts setting around 5 p.m. in the Winter.

Last week, the Baltimore Orioles played an afternoon game that went from nice to beautiful for a couple innings. A shaft of light slowly made it's way from third base line across the infield and eventually stopping just past first base.

I so badly wanted an action frame, aside from a pitcher or batter, in that shaft of light. But it was between innings when a the grounds crew gave me just want I was hoping for.

With that, I thought last week would be the last time I'd see "The Yard" this year, but the Baltimore Orioles are heading back to the postseason for the first time since 1997. The Orioles sealed at least an AL wild-card spot on Sunday night, meaning that even if they don't win the division, there is a good chance I could see at the minimum one more baseball game in Baltimore this week.
