Husker Baseball v Ohio State Buckeyes

As usual, the teenager refused to smile - but I think he had fun anyway.

As usual, the teenager refused to smile – but I think he had fun anyway.

A week ago, my family and I journeyed down to Lincoln to watch our niece play in a volleyball tournament. While there, we also took in a Husker baseball game. Sunday’s game (the final in the 3 game series) was cold and rainy but a great matchup between two good teams. Unfortunately, the Huskers came up short 5-2 in 10 innings.

Below are some of my pictures from the afternoon’s action. It was fun playing with my new camera (Nikon d810), but I can tell I have a ways to go before becoming a competent sports photographer.

About jheem

I grew up on a diversified dairy farm in southeast South Dakota where I learned how to throw a hay bale, pull a calf, deal with death, and "name" the cows. I was in 4H and FFA, and was privileged to serve as a state FFA officer. In college, I studied animal science, focusing on beef cows, mostly because I figured they were less work than dairy cows....I ended up with a Masters Degree in ruminant nutrition and went to work for the University of Nebraska, first as a research tech coordinating data collection for a swine unit and beef feedlot on a research farm and then as an extension educator. In my current job, I focus on environmental issues related to animal agriculture (which is a nice way of saying I talk about manure alot). My husband and I live and work on a seedstock cattle operation in northeast Nebraska. You can learn more about our cattle operation by visiting my husband's blog at http://aldersonangus.wordpress.com.
