Indiana Sports Photography: CMA Varsity Baseball vs. CCHS

Earlier this week, the Culver Academies Varsity Baseball Team hosted the Culver Community High School team. Both teams played very well and managed to keep the score close. The CMA team won with a score of 3-to-2. I’ve posted some photos here; there are several more posted at:


Culver Academy Baseball Photos: CMA Varsity Baseball vs. South Bend Riley

Yesterday afternoon, I had two firsts for the Spring. I wore shorts, as the temperature was in the 80s, and I shot a track meet. (See my other blog entry for more on the track meet.)

However, I started my afternoon shooting some of the Culver Academy’s varsity baseball team who hosted a match against South Bend Riley. I don’t know how the game ended, but it got off to a rocky start. As I’ve learned with most baseball and softball games, it started late. (If I weren’t shooting multiple events in an afternoon, it wouldn’t matter. When trying to keep a schedule and make it to other sports, games that start late limit the amount of time that I’m able to stay.) In addition to starting late, the game started with only one umpire. This posed a slight problem as an umpire at home plate has a difficult time seeing the action at the other bases. (There was a bad call at third base that I have the photos to prove. Don’t worry, though, it didn’t afect the score.) Finally, the CMA Eagles  slow start allowed Riley 3 points in the first inning.

I wish I could have stayed longer, but my plan for the day was to shoot the track meet because I hadn’t shot one this year. Because it started later, I decided that getting a little of the baseball game was better than getting none of it. I’ve posted some photos here.

Culver Academy Baseball Photos: CMA Varsity Baseball vs. West Central

This evening, the CMA Varsity Baseball team played West Central High School on Culver Academies’ campus. After a late start due to bus troubles, the game got started on a beuatiful evening with both teams appearing to be evenly matched. Unfortunately, due to donkey basketball (and yes, I really did say donkey basketball) at the  Culver Community High School, I could not stay for very much of the game. I’ve posted some photos here.

For anyone interested in my recap from the donkey basketball, please view my blog entry from that event or the photos located at www.culverphotos.com/donkeybasketball.


Culver Academy Baseball Photos: CMA Varsity Baseball vs. Morgan Township

Tonight, the 2010 baseball season began at Culver Academy with the first home game against Morgan Township. The weather was a little deceiving with the temperature being cooler than it appeared, but this didn’t seem to bother either team. The Culver Academy Eagles seemed to struggle in the beginning, but they started coming together as the game progressed. For those unfamilar with Culver, the kids returned from a long Spring Break (over 2 weeks) just 7 days ago. Unlike many of the schools that Culver plays, the Culver baseball team did not continue to practice over the vacation. Knowing this, I think the team played well. I’m not sure what the final score was, as I left once the light started being prohibitive for shooting but when I left, Culver was gaining ground.
