Last year while visiting the ball park I noticed a change. You had the regular guy who obviously loves baseball, the guy who won tickets in a office raffle and really has no idea why he’s there other than to be supportive of the company plan, the family of six who some how, some way thinks it’s okay to bring 3 four year olds to a game, the retired, the season ticket holders and their family,, and the list goes on. The change is that I saw that in each of these groups one of them was nominated group photographer.
Which then set off a memory of all those world series pictures (which I tried to find one for this article, but no one seems to have) of the hundreds of flash blubs going off around the batter just as the game begins. As I continued to look around cameras were everywhere, from low end point and click to men and women carrying around enough equipment that made me think that they were taking care of a child!
When thinking about it further I guess this would add another level of enjoyment to game for those spouses that weren’t particularly into baseball but want to go and be supportive. Or maybe it’s just another real way to enjoy the game, trying to catch that photo of the center fielder as he jumps to rob a home run or that crucial play at third.
