Throughout the spring, BlueClaws team photographer Dave Schofield will be checking in and doing some guest blogging. Dave got down earlier in the week. Here is entry one:
CLEARWATER, FL – The day began early for me on this the first day of my work here in Florida. I had a long drive to Winter Haven and Chain O’ Lakes Park for the St. Bonaventure University v Northeastern Univ. baseball game. The day started out with a slight drizzle and some threat of rain. Well the threat was realized at Chain o’ Lakes as the rain fell steadily until the start of the game and the after two innings it began to pour resulting in a 2 hour delay. I shot the two innings and then left for Clearwater again.
In the next few days I will shoot five college baseball games. On March 3 the season opens with the Yankees at 1PM at George M. Steinbrenner Field in Tampa as they take on the Pirates. After that game I will head to Brighthouse Networks Field to shoot the Phillies playing Florida State University. I will begin posting photos with my blog with that game.
If anyone has anything they want to ask me about spring training or any of the former and future BlueClaws feel free to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and I will try to get to all of the questions.
Should anyone feel any jealousy about me being in Florida, the temperature at Winter Haven today was 42 degrees with winds and rain…it was COLD! But I didn’t have to shovel anything.
We will talk again in a couple of days.
