Here are two of the shots I managed to get from yesterday’s Revolution game before I had to leave for another assignment. First, a feature:

York Revolution team manager Andy Etchebarren tells catcher Octavio Martinez to have a good night after some fans wished Martinez a happy 32nd birthday before the Revolution began playing against the Southern Maryland Blue Crabs on Saturday, July 30, 2011, at Sovereign Bank Stadium.
Next, my first successful shot of a(n unsuccessful) pickoff attempt:

York Revolution left fielder James Shanks briefly returns to first base just as Southern Maryland Blue Crabs first baseman Joe Jiannetti misses his catch in a pickoff attempt in the second inning on Saturday, July 30, 2011, at Sovereign Bank Stadium. Shanks turned around and made it safely to second base.
(Note: The contrast in the second photo is pretty much straight out of camera. I tried to tone it down a little for the blog. If you view it on the paper’s website, it looks more “normal” because our browser tends to desaturate our images anyway.)
