Orange and Blue Debut 2010

The annual spring scrimmage took place April 10, 2010 in Gainesville, Florida. I went down to watch the game with my wife and some friends. I had my trusty Canon G9 with me to get a few snaps of one of my favorite places to spend time away from home. Gainesville is like home away from home for me. [Read more…]

When the game is on the line, how do you respond? There have been times when my response has been the right one and then there are the other times. [Read more…]

More Diamond News

Another night at the diamond and another victory for Bishop Kenny. This time over Englewood by a margin of 13-3. In the photo, second baseman Scott Fjelstad goes after a ball in foul territory in the 5th inning while first baseman Jake Stipe looks on. No catch, but a great effort.

On The Diamond

I am not sure how most people may define success, but for a high school athlete many times success is defined as having some or all of your college education paid for in doing something you love. This held true for Neil McClellan of Bishop Kenny High School today as he signed his letter of intent to play baseball at Santa Fe College in Gainesville, Florida. Neil had an outstanding junior year in helping lead the Crusaders to a class 4A state title. Neil’s command of his pitches for both location and velocity helped him earn this scholarship to extend his playing career on the diamond and more importantly to continue his education beyond high school.

How do you define success?

The Bishop Kenny Crusaders went to the land of Mickey to take on cross state rival Bishop Moore in the Amway Arena on Saturday, December 20, 2008. In a tightly fought contest, the Crusaders prevailed over the Hornets. I had the privilege of shooting the game for BK and attending that night’s Magic vs Lakers game in the arena. The team enjoyed the opportunity to play in an NBA arena, even if the stands were less than packed. To view more photos from the game please visit the event gallery.
