The baseball season was young during this game between the Houston Astros and San Francisco Giants on Friday, April 19, 1991, at Candlestick Park. The Astros were taking batting practice before this night game.
When I shot photographs at Candlestick Park, I shot with 35mm color and black and white film. Yesterday’s picture is very similar to this one except that it was a different game and in color.
Did you notice on the scoreboard – it states how the Giants were the 1911 N.L. Champions? It was typical for the scoreboard to have trivia or history about the Giants.
It is also interesting that the Astros were a part of the National League in 1991. Later they would move to the American League. Of course, in the American League last year, the Astros won their first World Series Championship.
Baseball teaches us wonderful lessons – Never give up and keep seeking to win as the Astros did.
