Three down, Five to Go

Shooting the Kernels and Rattlers at Miller Park in Milwaukee on May 7, 2010

I am currently in edit mode! After a couple of weeks of busy ballpark shooting in Burlington, Davenport, and Appleton, I’m busy writing and editing the stories on those ballparks and cities that will air on KCRG-TV9’s Ballparks of the Midwest starting June 30.

I also was fortunate to cover the Cedar Rapids Kernels-Wisconsin Timer Rattlers game at Miller Park on Friday, May 7. It was quite the experience for the fans, players…and the media too!

Back to the editing…

KCRG-TV9’s Ballparks of the Midwest has been recognized by the National Press Photographers Association for two stories. The ballpark story on Clinton’s Alliant Energy Field took 3rd Place in the Central General Pool 2nd Quarter News Feature category. The ballpark story on West Michigan’s Fifth Third Ballpark received Honorable Mention in the Central General Pool 3rd Quarter News Feature category.

While the Midwest League Schedule has been out for quite a while, it probably won’t be until sometime in January or February that I start plotting my travels to cover the other 8 ballparks that I haven’t been to. I find that’s a pretty good time to think baseball…when there’s 8 inches of snow on the ground!
