Rickey Weekend: Day Two

Since the A's had declared their celebration of Rickey Henderson a "Rickey Weekend," with Rickey giveaways on both days, I obviously had to go to the game on Sunday as well.

Although the outcome was the same (the A's lost), not withstanding the number retirement ceremony, I actually had a lot more fun during the game on Sunday than I did on Saturday. We had seats directly behind home plate, in the second row towards that third base side, which put us right in the middle of the action.

But, that also put us directly behind the net, which isn't always conducive to picture taking. Fortunately, the telephoto lens was able to focus on the players most of the time, and in the shots that came out, you can barely even tell the net was there. Although I took quite a few pictures, below are some of my favorites.
