Scenes from "Fan Appreciation Night"

Posted by Dave Nichols | Friday, September 26, 2008 | 5 comments »

Last night's final home game in the inaugural season of Washington's Nationals Park was rained out. A disappointing, but fitting, way for the season to end. The end of the baseball season is always sad, and last night was no exception. After at least 99 losses, there figures to be a lot of change in the off-season. Rather than dwell on the good, bad and ugly that was the 2008 season today, I thought I'd simply share some photos that we took last night and let them stand for themselves.

    Great show. And really high-quality pix... what kind of camera and lenses were you using?

    Hendo, it's the Canon 30-D with a 70-300 lens. Cheryl (my wife and staff photographer) used the Nikon D3 earlier this season on loaner, but has always been a Canon girl. i get the camera so infrequently, but last night i did get to do some shooting. i'm a hack, she's the one with the talent, but thanks for the props.
