Sunset at Home, Vet Stadium, Philadelphia, PA
On a late summer afternoon, as the shadows crept towards home plate, I stood alone in the upper deck of old Veterans Stadium. Shooting my part of an SI photo essay of outfielders crashing into walls, I watched as the light got warm and soft, creeping away inch by inch . As the Giants put men on base, I became more aware of a potential play at the plate, and the time running out on the light. The baseball gods were with me this day, even on the bad hop that sent the ball flying into the air.
