Smile! 2010 Brewers Team Picture Wrap Up
Remember when you were on your Little League team and it was photo day? You always made sure that your uniform was crisp and clean. Big Leaguers go through the same thing. Yesterday was Team Photo day for the Milwaukee Brewers at Miller Park as Brewers players, coaches and field staff put on their best for the 41st Brewers Team Photo, a photo that will go down in the history books like the previous 40 photos.
For some Brewers, the Team Photo is old hat, they know the drill and have been through it before. For others, it marked another Major League first. It was the first Major League Team photo for Brewers rookies Lorenzo Cain and Jonathan Lucroy. It was the first full day as a Brewer for Chris Dickerson who found himself in a Brewers uniform late Monday night following his acquisition from the Reds.
The team photo was scheduled for 3:15 p.m. and here are some of my behind-the-scenes shots of what happened during the photo session.
Media Relations Director Mike Vassallo writes an additional reminder to players about the Team Photo. He is ensuring that all players are wearing the white uniforms along with the blue long sleeve undershirts. We sure heard it from the everyone about making them wear long sleeves on a hot and humid August afternoon.
While outside on the field, Brewers Team Photographer Scott Paulus (left) works with his two assistants in preparing the field for the Team Photo. Yesterday marked Paulus’ “8th or 9th” team photo, he couldn’t remember.
Randy Wolf was cracking a lot of jokes throughout the photo session, he was definitely on a roll Tuesday afternoon. Wolf also won the “Last One Out For the Team Photo Award” given annually by the Media Relations Department for the player or staff member who is the last person to join the Team Photo.
Here is a little bit of the video that I shot during the team photo:
Another successful Team Photo in the books! Thanks to the players, coaches, staff, Scott Paulus and the Miller Park Grounds Crew for their help in making sure it was a painless operation. Everything went well yesterday and I cannot wait to see the finished product.
