Our Backyard

This is where it all started in late 1998 – shots of the cage while in our backyard.  Daniel would get 200-300 extra cuts in every day after regular high school practice.  His high school team took state title his freshman, sophomore, and senior year and second his junior year.  He was a hard kid to strike out.  He would put the ball in play.  Don’t go down looking or swinging.  If you put the ball in play it forces their defense to make a play on you.  The first few images are back in late 1998 and early 1999, Daniel’s junior and senior year in high school.  Notice the blue netting.  The UV and water proofing coating was an oil based product and leached the soil.  The netting manufacturer was shut down by the EPA.  They now use a latex coating.  There are plenty more snapshots in the “Client Snapshots” Gallery.  Be sure and look there too.
