After three straight weeks of shooting NHRA drag racing I had a full week at home in Phoenix. Good time to relax right? False. More like a busy week of shooting Arizona Diamondbacks baseball!

While its no secret that baseball isn’t my favorite sport to shoot, the Dbacks happened to have a good home schedule with two interleague matchups against the Tampa Bay Rays and Baltimore Orioles. For good measure throw in a series against the New York Mets and it presented a good opportunity to shoot some of the star players I rarely, if ever, get the chance to see.

Lets get going with my baseball favorites from the week.
