UT Baseball - 2nd Game

Sorry art blog readers, today is baseball again. I promise I will get the sketches up in the morning. :)

Today the Horns won! 13-8 over San Diego. You can read about it and see some nice photos of Nick Peoples on the official page. Joanna hasn't posted yet, but she put up more photos of the Alumni game. She did keep score today. It was very cold sitting in the shade with a breeze. Before the sun went down it was OK. The game was great, dinner with the girls and stopped by the Guild Gallery for Charlie McDaniel's photography show. (Maybe that counts as doing something for art today. Ah, I did sketch a car while waiting outside Home Depot for Gene.)

After the neat photo I got of Huston Street the other day. I decided to try and get all the pitchers on one foot when they are throwing to compare the styles.

Kyle Walker pitched first.

He was replaced by Adrian Alaniz, who got the win.

Then Keith Shinaberry pitched. He really bends over and gets low to the ground. We usually sit up and toward home plate in Disch-Falk Field and looking down from there and a view more from the front we had not noticed how low he gets. Wow. Wonder what the batters think?

The closer today was Austin Wood. Interesting to see the different pitching styles. Also Austin has his pants legs long/down. There was a discussion a couple of years ago about why the pitchers wear their pants the way they do and their hats as well. Baseball players are a bit superstitious.
