Photographer's Note

Just a momentary break from my Tennessee shots. Today is April Fools Day, and I see a few people have uploaded some funnier shots in its honor, but today's also another important holiday, at least here in the States: it is Opening Day for Major League Baseball, which is a sure sign that spring has arrived! My local team, the Boston Red Sox, rang in the start of the year with a win over their hated rivals the New York Yankees, and all is right with the world.

This shot was taken last summer at a minor league ballpark in Lowell, MA, just up the road from Boston. The team is the Lowell Spinners, a reference to Lowell's past as the US's first major textile city. Here, as the game is about to start, a Spinners outfielder takes a quiet moment to pray before the game.

The title comes from the fantastic 'Bull Durham', my personal selection for the greatest baseball movie ever made.

Happy Opening Day, everyone!
