As a child I used to play baseball and was pretty good. I was the main pitcher of the Babe Ruth team I played for and was selected for the All Star team. However, once I started high school this part of my life ended. I found different hobbies like guitar and golf.
Today I was at the park with my two little girls. We decided to go for a walk around the baseball field in search of treasures that people may have left behind. I wasn’t expecting to find a baseball. All tattered from play and waterlogged from last nights rain I picked it up and decided to throw a few pitches from the mound. The first throw was clumsy and painful. I hesitated to throw again, but what the heck. Eight pitches was enough for me, but it was fun to relive the past a little.
The ball came to a stop in a puddle over home plate. It was then that I ran to get my camera to shoot this scene. I aligned the ball in front of the reflected sun in order to give the scene more interest.
