Safe or Out?

Progress always involves risk; you can’t steal second base and keep your foot on first base. ~ Frederick B. Wilcox

Safe or or Out? You make the call!

I am a baseball loving gal who is fortunate to live ten miles from Roger Dean Chevolet Stadium in Jupiter, Florida. It is the spring training home for the Miami Marlins and the St. Louis Cardinals. March weather in Florida is glorious, and March 13 was a perfect day for me to be at the park!

This action shot was fun to get. First of all, my seat was in direct alignment with home plate, so I could take the photo without standing up. Six players and two umpires were in my line of vision. Action shots tell a story, and the play at second base did not disappoint.

While the home plate group is watching the action unfold, each of the remaining figures has a specific role to play. I snapped the photo  just as the infielder leaped to catch the ball.

Sunshine, spring training, ballpark, lemonade, pretzels, popcorn, and photography! My kind of day!!
