merging my pictures and cards

Elvin Millan Jr.

I saw Elvin play earlier this season when his Riverhawks squad came to Gary to play the Railcats. Millan was once a very highly thought of prospect heading into college. Somewhere between that time and now his stock dropped. From what I saw in Gary over a two day span he looks to be a highly capable catcher. I guess that the talent pool steps up dramatically as you move up the ranks.

Another trick to getting a good picture at a game is to pick moments when you know action is going to happen. I always want to get a picture of the catcher throwing out a runner. I could wait for the exact right moment to get the shot, or I could just snap a picture when the catcher is throwing down to second at the beginning of an inning. Sometimes that gives you a picture like the one above. I really like the shot, and it was going to be his card from square one.

      These cards are not real. They are just images that I make up. I can send you the image on the card, or the image of the card if you like.
