2016 Victoria HarbourCats Baseball Club
July 9, 2016, Victoria, BC - Bend Elks second baseman Jack Strunk (2) and Victoria HarbourCats baserunner Dakota Dean both appeal their case to umpire Phil Borgeois (left), who would call Dean out after he slipped off the bag at second on this steal attempt during the HarbourCats 3-1 win over the Elks in West Coast League baseball action Saturday at Royal Athletic Park in Victoria.
WHY I CHOSE THIS PHOTO: This photo illustrates the importance of shooting "through the play." That is, continuing to shoot past the peak action. In this case, Dean over-slid the bag, tried to get back on and hoped that the ump would not see it. Unfortunately for Dean, he did, as did the second baseman and I simply liked the expressions here on both players faces and the ump pointing as well and beginning to make his out call.
