I had the amazing experience of sitting right next to the field in the Corona Beach Club AT&T park. It was so cool to be so close to the red dirt. What I especially enjoyed was the space at the end of our area for taking pictures. I brought my big zoom lens with a 2.8 f stop and was able to get some really awesome pictures. I felt like a professional sports photographer getting a chance to get close to my favorite team!I know this is the "other" team, but I was sitting right next to the bullpen and look at these photos! When it was quiet, you could hear the sound of the ball as the pitchers warmed up. I got a better understanding of just how fast their pitches are.
Even though we lost, it was a fantastic experience that I will always remember from these great photos. From a photographer's viewpoint, it was my favorite seat. Not the best seat for trying to cheer my team to a win because I was always busy looking for that 'next great photo'!
