This game was the Reed-Custer Comets against the Pontiac Indians on Tuesday, March 23. Good game to start off. Grabbed some pretty decent shots that you can find here and the game itself was good.
This is centerfielder Grant VanHaelst for the Comets. He had a nice beat on the ball but realized too late how close to the fence he was and took a header into it. He was OK.
He came up in the bottom half of the inning and belted a home run, going 3-for-3 with single, double and home run, 2 RBIs, 3 runs scored, and was the winning pitcher.
Not a bad day after getting up close and personal with the wall.
Just wish I had a 400mm to capture it better.
