This blog is mostly about awesome outdoor activities and Nature pix.
Many of you know that Bulldog here is a major sports nut, too.
And when I get good shots of a sporting event, they just might end up here.
It’s all outdoor photography, right?
I’m a big fan or the University of Central Florida. The UCF Softball squad hosted the Shockers of Wichita State last week. And I got some good photos out of it!
The banner photo is of a Shockers hitter just before the bat makes contact. It’s a keeper!
The next shot shows UCF ace pitcher Alea White. Alea is a junior and is really making her mark on UCF’s program. If she finishes strong this year and has a good senior season, she’s on pace to eclipse Shelby Turnier’s record of 80 career wins.
Bunting is not a technique used that much anymore in baseball. It’s still a big deal in softball, however. In this next photo, a Shockers hitter is showing the fans how it’s done.
Ultimately, the Shockers bested my Knights, 2-1 in a very close contest. It was a hard-fought one, and I got some good pix!
What more could a fan ask for?
