Barrett was a fun player to photograph while at Purdue for sure. At the plate he had a picture perfect swing with a great finish. In the field he had his hat which had to be the first Purdue hat given to him as it was very faded and dirty. It will be hard to top the pictures of him I gathered over the years.
Since my photo a day project is now over I have a little more time to post here. This is a long overdue card of former Purdue catcher Kevin Plawecki. Kevin is now in the minors, and I can’t wait to see him when he gets up to the bigs.
This is another card that was made for the back of my custom card last year. For some reason though that set never got finished, and the cards that were made just sat in a folder. Finally this card can see the light of day. It is very good timing too as the Boilers finally come home tonight to play their first home game of the season. It will not be in the new stadium as previously planned, but it will still be nice to see the boys play. They have been very good, and finally getting some national attention. It will be nice to see them getting some local attention after work today. (more…)
I made this card for Lance last season after seeing him pitch for the Boilers. It was meant to be placed on the back of my 2011 custom card, but that card was never made. Now this card sits as a standalone card. I thought that I would post this card today because Lance has been getting some recognition following his 11 strikeout performance this past weekend in the Big East/Big Ten Challenge in Florida. He was named Big Ten pitcher of the week, and today started seeing some National pitcher of the week awards come his way. This could be a great season for the Boilers. (more…)
Tyler made the 2010 custom set because of a great catch he made while crashing into the plywood wall during a game I witnessed live. He is a talented member of the team that was going to make this year’s set regardless of performance. His home run in the first game of the Big Ten Tournament this season was huge. (more…)
Cameron is another of the very talented sophomore players on the Boilermaker squad. He has really performed well in the games that I have seen the Boilers play. He will be fun to watch as he finishes out his Boiler career. I enjoy watching him play so much that I made a second retro card for him. (more…)
