Being a sports photographer: not without risk! Funny images from just before the start of the baseball game between the Chicago White Sox and the Kansas City Royals.
A blonde woman was allowed to take the ceremonial ‘first pitch’ there, but that did not go smoothly: a photographer who wanted to capture the solemn moment on the sensitive plate had to seek cover.
Fortunately, both the man himself and his camera were released with a fright.
It is not the first time that such a first pitch completely goes wrong. Don’t you, 50 Cent?
