MLB: APR 27 Braves at Cardinals
Photographing baseball is normally long and tedious as it is usually the same thing over and over throughout nine innings so this image from one of my very first MLB games holds a special place for me. I really like the intensity on Molina's face and how the umpire is 'protecting' the base runner during the play.
27 April 2010: Saint Louis Cardinals catcher Yadier Molina (4) sends he ball to third after Atlanta Braves third baseman Brooks Conrad (26) was called safe at the plate. The Saint Louis Cardinals faced off against the Atlanta Braves in game two of a four game series at Busch Stadium in St. Louis Missouri. Cardinals defeated the Braves 5-4.
