PLAY BALL! - Miracle Baseball Game Almost Free Photowalk

PLAY BALL! - Miracle Baseball Game Almost Free Photowalk

When: June 22

Time: 5:30 PM

Where: Hammond Stadium, 14100 Ben C. Pratt/Six Mile Cypress Parkway, Fort Myers, Florida 33912

Join us for a fun evening at Hammond Stadium photographing a  6:05 PM minor league game pitting the Jupiter Hammerheads against our Fort Myers Miracle. The stadium layout is great for photography. A zoom with a telephoto end around 200mm will allow you capture close up dramatic action at first and third bases.

We will meet at the fountain at the front entrance to the stadium at 5:30pm so we have time to get organized and get a few photo tips from Joe Fitzpatrick. Game time is 6:05pm. The games are not crowded.

You can purchase tickets in advance or at the gate on game day. Ticket prices range from $6.50 to $9.50.  Sections 102, 103, 113, and 114 are great for capturing the action at 1st or 3rd without obstructions. The sparse attendance means that you will not be locked in to a single vantage point. We freely move about the grandstand, getting shots from all different perspectives.

Photowalks are not classes. They are fun gatherings of friendly photographers of all skill levels who share knowledge and experiences. Join our friendly group, enjoy a great day, meet other photographers and come away with unique images to share.

    I have never attempted a meet up before. Where do I go when I get there? Is there a fee? Is there any instruction at all regarding the photography? My 19 yr old son wants to tag along and just watch the game (w/ticket) is that ok? Thanks for any help

      While Understand Photography does not charge for the photowalk, you still need to purchase a ticket for the ballgame. We will be giving some shooting suggestions when we meet at 5:30. During a photowalk we share suggestions and tips with each other.

    Incidentally, this link gets you to a more direct Miracle web site including schedule, promotions, etc.; the other (at least for me) takes you to a general minor league site, not sure why as it looks right:

      Thanks Linwood! Originally the link took you to the Miracle's web. I've updated it, I think? (Joe for Peggy)

    I'll be there, but may not see you at the beginning; don't wait for me please.
