Opening day for the Photographer.

Steve Russell - Staff Photographer

Sunday's Blue Jay game was another opening day, for me!

I was my first game of the season and it showed. I thonk by the end of the game I was surrounded by a pile of rust.

Man, Ricky Romero can pitch!

My first game ever at the Roger Centre was in 1989, the Jays clinched the division in front of a full house, it is a little sad to see fans have their choice of the 36,000 plus empty seats!
