The 2020 MLB season was definitely a unique one. 2020 in general was a whole other story to be honest. For the 2020 MLB season I was tested for Covid numerous times a week and I was the only sports photographer, other than the Marlins team photographer, in the well shooting. There were 60 games in 60 days and I had a stretch of 14 games in 10 days including a few double headers. The 2020 MLB season truly was an experience and one that I’m more than ok with not having again.
While I didn’t get the chance to shoot all of the teams like in other seasons I did have a chance to have more one on one interactions with the players since I was the only photographer in the visiting team well. Vladimir Guerrero Jr. came in the well during the game and just sat next to me having a mid game snack. Bryce Harper came to talk to me in between a double header and pretty much most of the Phillies coaches and players were easy to approach. This season the Angels were supposed to come and that was my chance for Mike Trout and Albert Pujols, but the way Covid acted I only photographed teams from the NL and AL East. Was I upset, not really. I was able to shoot the hometown team, the Boston Red-Sox, and that made everything better.
