I took this picture of former Michigan LF Brad Roblin a couple of years ago (it was 2005). That weekend I talked T9 into attending a random Michigan/Indiana game while I was in town to shoot the Tigers -- it was a beautiful spring day and it might have been one of the best times I have ever had as a Michigan fan. Roblin actually reached up and took this home run away from a poor Hoosier player. It happened so fast that most people had no idea what just happened. I remember showing his Dad the image from my camera, and he was amazed. I have shot many major league minor league and major college baseball games - but no single image is more important to me than this "lucky" shot of a Michigan ballplayer climbing the wall to steal a home run.

The three time defending Big Ten Champion Michigan baseball team started their season a couple of weeks ago in Florida. Yawn. As a college baseball fan -- I know it is hard to get excited for any college baseball team north of the Mason-Dixon line. However, Michigan Coach Rich Maloney has done a great job in building a program that we can all be proud of. Someday I hope to make an emergency trip to Omaha to enjoy these guys in the College World Series.
