The Fine Art of Baseball (Part 1)

May 03, 2015  •  Leave a Comment

Hopfully you all will like this post, because it is going to be an oft repeating theme this summer. With thanks to the Charlotte Knights organization, I have access to take pictures at select Knights games. And rather than simply take Sports Page style shots (though I will take some of them as well), my main plan is a series I'm calling The Fine Art of Baseball.

There are those who view baseball as a tired, old game with slow moving action. While this maybe a reaction to today's nothing is fast enough world, baseball to me is both athletic and intellectual requiring strategy and skill. It pretty uniformly rewards both power and strength as well as speed and grace.

What you will see in this series are the little moments of baseball before, during, and after the game that many people miss. It is an attempt to get at what makes baseball such a special game. And what made it America's Past Time.

The photo series tries to go beyond the money and the Sports Radio clatter and hype to show the egalitarian promise of the game, the chance for the underdog to prevail, the hard work and the beauty. Those things which America once valued in and of themselves.

Let the images write the story rather than a sports columnist or ESPN analyst or (God forbid) an Atlanta Braves play by play announcer and see if you begin to see what I see.
