We were unable to get someone to babysit our son on Saturday for the Jupiter Hammerheads game but made it out bright and early for Sunday’s affair. “Fakehorsemuffins”, an avid Marlins fan and Wax Heaven reader showed up for a few innings and even gave us some awesome Marlins goodies. Thanks Erick! Keep an eye on your mailbox next week.
Not having attended a daytime baseball game my entire life, I wore all black and Tatiana for some reason wore a red sweater. The photography ended in the 5th inning when we could no longer withstand the Florida sun but we stayed all the way to the end and watched as the Hammerheads took the Daytona Cubs to town for a 10-0 victory. Below is a few of the photos taken by yours truly, except for one.
In another post someone mentioned I should take some action shots. I spent the entire afternoon doing just that. Next time around I am going to be on the field for the Hammerheads game, that is a promise. Does anyone think I deserve at least one shot on the Florida Marlins field for just one game? So far all my leads have dried up. It seems I am going to have to keep trying until someone gives me my “call-up” to the bigs.
Roger Dean Stadium is a beautiful facility
…but security is kind of non-existent.
Getting on the field before the game was a breeze
…selling out to Topps, not so easy!
Former big leaguer Scott Eyre didn’t do so well…
…neither did his replacement!
When Daytona put up a rally…
the pitching shut them down!
Starting pitcher Kyle Winters…
…was unstoppable! He is now 3-1 with a 1.23 ERA
Logan Morrison, age 20 – 1st base
This kid is the future of the Florida Marlins
3 home runs, 16 RBI, .341 average on the season
He doesn’t just pull the ball, either
Dante Brinkley puts the ball on the catchers head!
