Details

Join FCCP for the Threshers 4th of July celebration and largest fireworks display in the county. This evening's game features the Florida State League's Clearwater Threshers versus the Fort Myers Miracle. The first pitch is scheduled for 7 PM.

These two games which feature one of the largest fireworks displays in the state of Florida usually sells out early. Please purchase your tickets early to avoid lawn seating. Here is the link to purchase tickets online,

We will not be able to sit as a group. Many of the more experienced photographers stand and roam the stadium during the game looking for the best advantage points.

Spectrum Field is a very photographer friendly ball park. You can bring any size lens (no length restrictions, like the majors) and you can bring tripods and monopods. There is a bag size restriction, approximately 16x16x12.

I'll be happy to give instruction on baseball photography, including the ever elusive ball on bat. I'll also be available to answer questions on fireworks photography as well.

For best results you'll need a tripod and wide angle lens. Zoom wide angles are good too. Fireworks are very tall and a telephoto/zoom lens will not work. Extra batteries can be helpful and bring plenty of storage cards.

Field Box seats can be purchased on the Internet discounted to just $8 (Seniors and Children also $6) and parking is $3. Get your tickets now as they are selling out quickly.

We'll meet in the plaza around section 119 ~ 120, along the third base line. Join us for this fun evening of sports photography at Spectrum Field as we shoot the Clearwater Threshers versus the Fort Myers Miracle, PLUS THE LARGEST FIREWORKS DISPLAY OF THE YEAR.

Don't miss this great evening of fun and excitement, RSVP NOW!
