2011 csd Custom – Joel Skinner
Earlier this season Joel Skinner came back to Chicago as the bench coach for the Oakland A’s. He came up in the mid 80’s and was supposed to be the replacement for the aging Carlton Fisk. Of course we all know that Carlton played almost ten more years after that so Joel had to look for playing time elsewhere.
I took this picture as Joel was giving Kurt Suzuki his mask back. As Kurt was putting his gear back on after batting Joel went out and caught pitcher Brett Anderson. I wanted a picture of Joel, and this was the perfect opportunity to get it.
