Default Magic Flutie

Doug Flutie and his All-Stars played the US Military All-Stars last Satuday night in a charity baseball game. Since retiring from the NFL & CFL he has done some amazing charity work. Shot with Ist DS and DA 55-300 from the stands. Prefocused on the batter-switched to manual focus-shot on motor drive.

Wouldn't be without this lens-I also have the DA 50-200-the 55-300 is not that much larger with 50% more reach. This was later in the evening and I was at least 60/70 yards from the mound.

Doug Flutie is wearing his years well. For a guy who was "too small to play pro ball" he had a remarkable career.

Nice pictures!

The US Military All-Stars are a team of active duty servicemen who volunteer to play on this team-they pay their own expenses and use their leave to make the games. The color guard was from the USS Constitution in Charlestown, MA. Note the significance of their numbers and the names of events or Presidents on their back. America needs more people like these guys.

Very nicely done, DMJJR. Where did they play? I hadn't heard anything about it.

The game was at Holman Stadium in Nashua-it was sponsored by Toyota of Nashua-as far as I know the only advertising was in the Nashua Telegraph. There was a band concert after the game-really good deal for $10.00/each. Throw in a few hot dogs with drinks and you have Main St, USA.
