Fan Photo of the Week

Starting this Friday, we're launching a new weekly feature, the Fan Photo of the Week.

With the phone apps and cameras available today, I'm amazed at the photos an everyday fan can take at sporting events.  Here are two of my favorites, both from my phone, edited with a little help from instagram.

Giants - Dodgers. Vogelsong pitched a beauty. July, 2011.

The Red Sea. Taken after the Niners - Saints Instant Classic.

Now I know they're not perfect and will never be sold by a major outlet, but each of these photos instantly take me back.  I can still remember the feelings from that moment, awe, relief, excited, disbelief.

We want to give you a place to showcase the sporting event photos that take you back, whether they're beauty shots or cameos.

To submit your photos for the Fan Photo of the Week, please email me at hutchfromthesidelines [at] gmail [dot] com.  You will be featured here, as well as our Facebook fan page.  I highly recommend watermarking your photos (although, clearly, I don't follow that advice very well).


  1. I love this idea, and I love those photos. I really hope I'm going to be able to catch an O's game when I'm home this summer AND I will finally have a new phone to take some shots!

  2. Guess who is going to the ballpark tomorrow . . . :) Also, is camping a sport? Cause I'll be taking a ton this weekend . .
