I went to a pair of Red Sox games while I was visiting my folks last weekend — the Friday afternoon and Saturday night games against the Angels. I thought the Friday game would be a decent opportunity to snap some photos, but my SLR locked up while I was shooting the pregame warmups. I pulled two interesting shots off my SD800 IS, but I think I had some decent ones of Clay Buchholz warming up on film before that camera spit the bit.
Here’s the main reason I brought my camera — Clay Buchholz big league debut. The Sox have been grooming him as their next stud pitcher and I was thrilled when I saw the schedule would line up so I’d get to see him.
This one just amused me. Justin Speier was entertaining fans and bullpen-mates with some mid game juggling. Afterwards, he tossed the balls out to a few fans, including a very excited young boy.
