The Texas Rangers: The Fun Bunch

The 2009 Texas Rangers, led by their skipper Ron Washington, were one of the funnest teams I covered in 2009.

The Angels have great team chemistry

Even though the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim beat my San Francisco Giants in the 2002 World Series (when they were the Anaheim Angels) I have always enjoyed watching and photographing this team- especially in recent years.

Lou Piniella

Lou Piniella has been around for a long time, and I have photographed him managing everyone from the Reds to the Mariners to the Devil Rays and now the Cubs over the past 20 years.
