Afternoon from Clinton, Iowa. Assisting @dilipv today for a Sports Illustrated photoshoot with the Clinton LumberKings. Single A affiliate for the Seattle Mariners. #vscocam #lumberkings (at Clinton LumberKings Baseball Club)
Class A, Baseball in the Middle of Everywhere
"A sharp, funny and remarkably perceptive portrait of a minor league baseball team and the people that love it. Mann writes well about the appeal of the sport— he reels off sentences like ‘I kept my dirty uniform on until right before bed time and then fell asleep to my father’s voice conjuring grown men who cared for nothing but play and honor.’ But he’s best on the town of Clinton, Iowa, home of the lumberkings, and it’s sad but pride-filled history. Anyone who’s spent time in a small town will recognize Clinton, and mourn its decline."
