2013 GVBA Mosquito Championship
June 21, 2013 Victoria, BC - Triangle Bullet baserunner Jack Hardy slides safely into second base, while Carnarvon shortstop Chris Horwood awaits the throw during action in the GVBA Mosquito Championship on Friday evening at Juan de Fuca Park in Victoria. The Bullets would score in each of their at bats to come away with a 12-8 win.
WHY I CHOSE THIS PHOTO: This photo is mainly about the great early evening light and the way it highlights the short-stop's face as he awaits the throw, as well as how it highlights the individual particles of dirt kicked up by the slide. The great technical form of the player awaiting the throw and the dark, simple background also help the play and the frozen ball stand out, adding to the photo.
