I guess my retirement is official now. I have taken a Baseball vacation for many years (I see how many Minor League games can be watched during my time off, take a panoramic during the game, and post it on my website – I’ve got 65 images so far and will be adding 10 more soon) and I considered this one to be a regular vacation. Upon my return I now have time to work on things that I consider to be important.
This image was photographed in Modesto, California toward the end of the game. I had been sitting on the first base side because the temperature at the beginning of the game was in the mid-90s and this afforded me a little shade, and toward the end of the game I wandered over to the third base side, noticing that the stars (okay, two planets and the moon) were aligned for the Modesto Nuts.
The game went into extra innings, and at the top of the 11th inning High Desert scored a run. However, in the bottom of the inning Modesto scored two runs to win the game.
