out in left field
Because of the threat of rain which became a reality late in the game, I decided to shoot last night’s Cubs/Padres game from a sheltered position at Wrigley Field, the camera basket on the 3rd base side upper deck.
That higher position not only protected me from the weather but gave me a better angle on the fans in the bleachers.
Knowing that before the start of each inning and after his warm up tosses, Chicago Cubs’ left fielder Alfonso Soriano tosses a ball to the fans in the left field bleachers, I decided to try to make a fun photo of the fans trying to nab a souvenir.
I didn’t have to wait long as the best image came before the 1st inning.
When Soriano lobbed the ball into the crowd, six men and two women reached for the prize. Who do you think came up with it?
Yep, the young woman in the white shirt.
