Nobody ever said “Work ball!”

Have fun!

Last night was the home opener for the Trenton Thunder, Double-A minor league team for the New York Yankees. The weather was perfect and the smell of peanuts and Cracker Jack was in the air. I had a press pass so I was on the field and in the dugout snapping shots. I hope you enjoy my photographs. Don’t take life so seriously…play ball! Below are a few of my favorite baseball quotes…

“A hot dog at the ballgame beats roast beef at the Ritz.”
-Humphrey Bogart

“I see great things in baseball. It’s our game – the American game. It will take our people out-of-doors, fill them with oxygen, give them a larger physical stoicism. Tend to relieve us from being a nervous, dyspeptic set. Repair these losses, and be a blessing to us.”
-Walt Whitman

“Sandy’s fastball was so fast, some batters would start to swing as he was on his way to the mound.”
-Jim Murray, on Sandy Koufax

“Life will always throw you curves, just keep fouling them off… the right pitch will come, but when it does, be prepared to run the bases.”
-Rick Maksian
