My first assignment was to follow Billy Hamilton with the Pensacola Blue Wahoos (minor league baseball) as he attempted to break the record for stolen bases in a season.

So, having only shot a few baseball games in my lifetime, I shot a doubleheader last Friday, a game Sat, Sun, and last night.

He finally broke the record last night.

Story with on of my shots on NY Times' website from last weekend:

I'll post a blog sometime soon, need to recover from so much shooting.

Congrats on the coverage. At least he didn't make you wait too many innings.
