Connor Whalen - 2013-14 Sydney Blue Sox

Whalen spent 2011 and 2012 playing in the minor leagues for the Milwaukee Brewers before being released. He is playing as an American import for the Sydney Blue Sox in the 2013-14 ABL season, having spent 2013 playing independent ball for the St Paul Saints and Lake Erie Crushers. Whalen is having a successful enough season Down Under that he played in last nights ABL All Star Game - pitching the third inning for the World All Stars against the Australian All Stars.

Again, trying a different approach with some of the player photos this year - trying to get more of their emotions in and around the games rather than trying to get any action shots per se. I liked the expression and lighting on Whalen's face in this pitch follow through and decided to choose this shot rather than the more traditional pitching shots.
