#2 Scoreboards in the Background

For this installment of SiTB I'd like to focus on 2009 Topps Baseball #422. I wanted to do this one today because I'm in an action shot frame of mind and this card delivers.

It's got a nice shot of Hamilton preparing to throw. The entire body is in the frame and also you'll notice he's captured completely off of the ground. I can tell this because it looks to be a hint of a shadow on the ground underneath his foot.

The out of focus scoreboard in the background gives a nice depth

I also like the dude in the bullpen behind Blaylock. I thought he was wearing two wrist bands, but I think the one on his right wrist is a tattoo. All right, that's all for now. Kind of a quick post, but today is like 50+ degrees but it feels like it's in the 70's so I gotta get out of the house for a while. Thanks for reading!

I like to see the Rangers featured. I think that guy in the back is the centerfielder...

Yep, you're right. He's definitely in the playing field. Good catch. I didn't notice that.
