Artist's Description

This photo was taken during a baseball game between the NY METS and the Trenton Thunder, June 2010. I wish this one was clearer but I still can’t get over this capture. It was snapped at the moment the batter let go of the bat and rushed to 1st base. See how far the batter is from the bat, he is really running and the bat is still “standing” as if he just released it. I think it is an amazing capture.

The Trenton Thunder are an American Minor League Baseball team and are the Double-A affiliate of the New York Yankees. The Thunder play in the Eastern Division of the Eastern League, and have won two league championships. The Thunder’s home stadium is Arm & Hammer Park in Trenton, New Jersey.

The New York Mets are a professional baseball team based in the borough of Queens in New York City. They belong to Major League Baseball’s National League East Division. One of baseball’s first expansion teams, the Mets were founded in 1962 to replace New York’s departed National League teams, the Brooklyn Dodgers and New York Giants. The Mets colors are composed of the Dodgers blue and Giants orange. During the 1962 and 1963 seasons, the Mets played their home games at the Polo Grounds. From 1964 to 2008, the Mets’ home ballpark was Shea Stadium. In 2009, they moved into a new ballpark, Citi Field.

This game is played to honor the New Jersey Special Olympics athletes and raise money for them. the NJ Special Olympics athletes and families are given free tickets to the game. It was a thrill to see them play.
