Fellow photographer Travis Turner and Diana Hanson of the Pasco-Hernando Community College Library helped me install the 30 framed images of "Farm Team: A Season in the Minors" in the Alric Pottberg Gallery yesterday. I took the following images with my Canon G10 once the installation process was completed.
This is the first Florida exhibition of "Farm Team: A Season in the Minors." The photographs of the Savannah Sand Gnats baseball team document the pitfalls and triumphs of the 2004 season, the 100th anniversary of minor league baseball in Savannah, Georgia. They capture the rituals of daily summer league life, portraying a side of minor league ball that spectators rarely witness: prayers in the dugout on Sunday, clubhouse card games during a rain delay, dominos games on the team bus, and the training room routine before each game. The resulting visual chronicle honors the hopeful determination of the minor league team and documents their hardships in pursuit of the highest level of sport.
The exhibition runs from April 14 - May 12 with an opening reception on Thursday, April 14th from 5-7 pm. A "ballpark menu" will be served at the reception. Please join me that evening. We are expecting between 75 and 125 people to be in attendance.
