Josh Hamilton visits Slugger :: Louisville Lifestyle & Sport Photographer

Five-time MLB all-star and LA Angels big hitter, Josh Hamilton stopped in with us at Louisville Slugger on Friday. Lucky me, Slugger asked me to document his visit! I didn't have any of my gear with me, so I shot these with an entry level D-SLR. Just goes to show you can get great shots with any camera ... but I am still drooling over my new Canon 5D Mark II!

Josh started his day by making a surprise appearance with the local Louisville Warriors baseball team. This Louisville west-end team was thrilled to have the baseball legend share his story, inspiration, and especially his tips in the batting cage! Next up for Josh was a personal tour of the Louisville Slugger wood bat factory. Anyone that had the chance to spend a quick moment with Josh on his trip would feel humbled to have such an amazing man, husband, father, and baseball player as part of the Slugger family.

UPDATE // on behalf of Louisville Slugger, my photo of Josh Hamilton and his family has been published in Baseball America magazine!
