Eddie De La Cruz to Joe Benson

Eddie De La Cruz to Joe Benson

On This Date: Photo taken 8/29/2006

De La Cruz is pitching for the Southwest Michigan Devil Rays and Benson’s at bat for the Beloit Snappers, a Brewers affiliate. Midwest League action at Battle Creek’s CO Brown Stadium.

The D’Rays were about done. They’d play two more home dates, then a Labor Day series in Lansing. After those the franchise moved to Midland, where they became the Great Lakes Loons.

I miss ’em. Especially late in August I miss ’em.

Under the lights my baseball photographs are more about capturing action than stopping it. Thus: Eddie’s in motion, the baseball’s a blur, and Joe’s about to swing that bat. The second baseman’s Matt Devins.

Number of pix taken on various August 29ths: 392
