Lowell Spinners, Boston Red Sox Rookie NY/Penn League
Good thing I got to Aberdeen bright and early July 8th because I got some good posed shots of a few Lowell Spinners before the rain drove me away.
After BA #7 Boston prospect 3B Garin Cecchini, RHP Neil Obando (1-2 W-L, 2.16 ERA), and RHP Swen Huijer (1-1, 1.32 ERA) posed for my camera, the clouds burst before I could finish up with LHP Miquel Pena (0-0, 3.60 ERA, #6 2011 Draft Pick), 3B Travis Shaw (321 BA, 0 HR, 6 RBI), and RHP Jason Garcia (2-0, 1.29 ERA).
I had taken photos of BA #24 RHP Madison Younginer last season at Aberdeen so I felt I was in good shape with him.
Although disappointed I didn’t get any photos of the other players or game shots, after thirty minutes of the hardest rain I saw in years let up, I was happy to run out to my car with the photos I had, drive home 85 miles, and hope for a better day next time..
