Who's your grannie?
I traveled to St. Louis Sunday to see the St. Louis Cardinals battle the Philadelphia Phillies. The Phillies had won the first three games in the series and I could see the Cards needed some of my mojo. It worked -- they won!
In the first inning, the Cards loaded the bases off Roy Halladay and Yadier Molina came to bat. Cardinals' fans love all their players, but Molina gets the loudest ovation. St. Louis fans are savvy and they know what he means to the pitching staff. Also, he seems to come through in the clutch and fans obviously like that, too.
I had my good camera with me and it was set on burst. Under optimum conditions, it can shoot six images per second. I was ready, but was Molina ready?
One Monday, Memorial Day, I went to Chicago to the game at Wrigley Field. I'll share some images on Thursday. Stay tuned.
Photos taken with my Canon 40D. For camera nerds: The focal length was 177 mm, taken at F4.0 and at 1/1000 sec with an ISO = 400.
