Last night I covered my first MLB game, Mets vs Twins at Shea Stadium in Queens. It was an awesome evening. I sat down in the spot reserved for Sports Illustrated. Then, I shadowed S-L staffer William Pearlman, who can caption and transmit photos so fast it'll make you're damn head spin. He showed me the ropes, and next thing I know, I'm transmitting between innings. William also gave me some great tips on shooting baseball, especially pointers to predict reactions. The game got a bit slow after about four innings, but covering pro sports is just a cool atmosphere. Hell, I could be working for a living. Only damper, them Mets lost. Here are some pictures...
