Baseball players in ivy
Chicago, June 10: If this was just a regular game on the road, we would not have been there. I've been shooting the Red Sox since '87-- been to World Series, playoffs, seen 'em die and wait till next year -- but never playing at Wrigley Field. ... I was hoping for something that brought the players close enough to interact with the ivy because that's uniquely Wrigley. I'm shooting along the first base line, and Johnny Damon was chasing a fly ball in the third inning. His momentum carried him into the ivy-- like being swallowed up. ... If you're a fan, you know immediately. Just like if you see a player crashing into the Green Monster, you say, “That's gotta be Fenway.”
