A Minor League Baseball pitcher warms up in Lowell, Mass.

Prior to a game at the Lowell Spinners home stadium, LeLacheur Park, in Lowell, Mass., I was in the right-field stands during batting practice taking photos of different players on the field. As I was standing over the bullpen, I looked down and noticed the shadow of the railing and how it was laid over the pitcher. I decided to take some time to play with composition. This was my favorite of the series.
