Har-Ber at Sprindale Baseball

Cross-town rival Springdale High School hosted Springdale Har-Ber High School Friday, May 4, 2012 at Tyson Sports Complex in Springdale.

Right off the bat (pun intended!), I noticed some aggressive base running by Springdale – there were some players who seemed to be instantly and permanently caked in a layer of dirt. The loose dirt made for some dramatic imagery too! A brief storm rolled by with thunder that delayed the game for about an hour, but it eventually passed and the players resumed play, this time with the game tied at 3-3 in the bottom of the fourth.

I was definitely impressed by the offense of both teams. A number of players got some nice shots up the middle, dropping the ball in an unmanageable spot. I couldn’t stay for the finish, but it looked like Har-Ber was determined to take this game.

I'm originally from Colorado and I was introduced to photojournalism in high school while working on the school's yearbook. In 2011, I graduated from Colorado State University with degrees in journalism and art. This is my first “real-world” job, but while in college I worked for CSU's daily student newspaper and I interned for Denver-based Westword, the Colorado Eagles (ACHL hockey team) and Johnson and Wales University. I cherish analog photography and I like to shoot on a medium-format Mamyia RB67 whenever I can. While I'm not at work, I enjoy doing all sorts of physical activities, especially mud runs and Crossfit, and I love to bake desserts (which are usually consumed by my coworkers).
