Never Give Up! (The story behind my most recently published baseball photograph)

Today I had another sports photograph published in the Pocono Record, but the story behind this photograph is not about me.
http://www.poconorecord.com/apps/pbcs.dll/article?AID=/20140506/SPORTS/405060334
Dan Heckman, the batter in the photo, is an outfielder for the Pleasant Valley Bears. He hasn’t gotten much playing time this season, but Monday afternoon he did and he shined big time! Heckman hit a single in the last inning, producing 2 RBIs on the solid line drive. Earlier he hit a sacrifice fly for another RBI.
So here is a player who hasn’t seen much field time, but he did not give up! He is a team player and had the chance today to be out on the field. He definitely made it count!
Heckman’s lesson to all of us: never give up. Keep your head up, contribute to the team whenever and however you can, and be patient: your chance will come, and when it does, make the most of it. Heckman did!

+Keith Stevenson Oh, Keith, the new rig is just beyond description. Laying on the shutter and hearing 12 frames per second is almost worth the price alone! Actually, I think the focusing system is the deal breaker though. It is incredible! After just four weeks of having the D5 I am completely brainwashed and will definitely be buying the D500 as my second camera body. I've shot Lacrosse, Softball, & Baseball so far and it is sweet. I am off to State College tomorrow to shoot two of their Softball games this weekend with it. So, yeah, this rig is treating me like a photo king!
