2 months later ... This morning I get a call from my daughter informing me that one of my pics is in the local newspaper, and another is in the online version - accompanying the announcement of a 3-day tournament at the Junior College.
So I get to the first game, and the person in charge of the website and outside comm comes over and introduces herself (and laying compliments on me) Yippie.
While waiting for my game to start, a player from the prior game comes over and asks if I have a card so he can order pics - I explain that I only shoot one team.
Just before the game, I go into the entry corridor to see if I can shoot some informal shots - the coach formally introduces me to the team (who mostly know me as "the" photographer), and has them form around me and he takes my pic with the team ... talk about feeling "family"! The tall boy behind me on my left is my grandson.

After the game is won, and I'm taking pics of them exiting, the coach brings over his father, and introduces us.
I think I've chosen a pretty nice hobby in my old age.
