BlueClaws team photographer Dave Schofield checks in on his way down to Clearwater.
Hello again from the road. This is Dave Schofield, BlueClaws team photographer. I am making my way down to Florida for another spring training, and each mile I drive, the weather gets warmer and more baseball like. My first stop will be in Loganville, Georgia where I will get to spend a couple of days with my daughter and her husband. It is a bit our of the way, but the chance to visit with them on the way down was too good to pass up.
Again this year I will be doing the posed headshots of all the Yankees and Phillies minor leaguers. I have added Reading to the list of Phils minor league teams I will be photographing. Again I will do headshots for the New Hampshire Fishercats of the Eastern League. During my time in Florida I will shoot three World Baseball Classic warmup games, I have Phillies v Canada, Phillies v. USA and Tigers v Puerto Rico. I am looking forward to the Tigers/PR game since it will bring Bernie Williams back into action.
As for the major league games I will be shooting, they should be a lot of fun, since most of the stars will be with their respective WBC teams. This will give some prospects a chance to play with the big club in spring training games. The minor leaguers will not start playing games until March 21, since the season starts a bit later this year.
Well I am looking forward to providing Blog readers with some interesting tid bits from spring training. I will submit my blog from time to time and also put some photos of former and future BlueClaws up as well.
As I get warmer and warmer I will think of you in NJ getting colder…ha ha…more from spring training on Thursday!
