Pic(k) of the Week: The Final Out

The Final Out

Let me sit in the ball park
cap turned backwards and
praying for a rally. I need
the sun and sweat to remind
me how much I love the game,
how each year it comes down,
to the last inning, the final out.

Baseball's playoffs began this week; the World Series championship is to be played later in the month. It's autumn. The wait-for-tomorrows of spring and summer are no more. All that remains is the "final out."

No baseballs were harmed —or staged— during the shoot.
