The Red Sox (finally) ended their game last night against the New York Yankees in the bottom of the 11th inning around 1am EST thanks to Mike Napoli. This was their second walk-off win at home in a month and their 9th this season! It’s interesting every season to see the trends in celebration at home plate, with this game ending in a helmet throw and a ripped up #12 jersey.

Enjoy the images!

I successfully made the 13 hour drive to Boston from Pittsburgh with all of my belongings on a 17 foot U-Haul that was also towing my car. Phew! Glad that’s over with…

After spending a day in NYC filling out some paperwork to officially become a member of the Getty team and visiting with college friends and fellow photographers, Coty Tarr, Ashlee Gray, and Danielle Anderson, I took the Amtrak back to Boston to start my first assignment – Yankees vs Red Sox.

Arguably the biggest rivalry in sports, the same series in New York City was my first as an intern with Getty Images/Sport in 2009, so it was only fitting that it was also my first series as a staff photographer Getty. I had a blast covering two out of the four games in the series – Friday and Sunday. It was really great to spend some time and meet the local photographers but just as great to catch up with the shooters from New York City who I haven’t seen in a few years.

Here are some images of mine from my first series of many at the historical Fenway Park. I’m also quite proud to say that I am part of the Getty Images team and I hope to be here for quite some time!

Enjoy!
