Old-Timey Baseball with Philadelphia Athletic Club

I don’t always have the time to do the story that’s in my head in exactly that form when it comes time to publish.  Deadlines are pretty tough in TV, especially when it’s going to the web first.  But this one was pretty close.  In my head I envisioned it a sepia-toned old-timey homage to a cool group of baseball re-inactors.  Here is the link on PHL17. And here is the video.

I shot this one in Batsto, NJ which was a perfect backdrop for a group like this.  I challenged myself to frame as much of the piece as I could without modern imagery that looked like it did not belong.

I also met some really great people and learned some things about baseball I did not know.  Pantaloons and Near Beer for everybody!!
