I was fortunate to shoot Notre Dame's season home opener last week. One thing I cannot stress enough is to invest in good hearing protection. I have some hearing loss in my right ear that was made worse by some improper protection at NASCAR about exactly a year ago. I recently bought custom fit plugs that work great, and were extremely useful at Notre Dame, especially when I was standing in front of speakers for the band.
The first picture here I was incredibly lucky to get. I was sitting in the stands and I had to "snipe" through a row of seats and hope no one in the White Sox dugout stood up, he was blocked from my view until he was about 10 feet away from the tarp. It got picked up by USA Today's For The Win and I was really excited to see that it was my second time making the edit of Getty Sport's Global Pictures of the Week.
