The Trevor Bauer Show

Photos by Jordan Megenhardt

Word has gotten out about Trevor Bauer. Not only is he impressing everyone with his stuff on the mound but people are showing up early just to catch a glimpse of the top prospect as he warms up before the game.

He starts off with some stretches and weights and ends with some long toss. And “long” is the keyword. Along with fans and media, Bauer’s teammates and coaches can’t help but watch as he throws from foul pole to foul pole with pinpoint accuracy.

During today’s game, I made my way to a couple of different spots to shoot from. Bauer went a few innings, so I was able to get some images of him from a few unique angles. With his unique delivery and the unique angles, it made for some cool photos.

Pitching Prospects Tyler Skaggs and Trevor Bauer

Pitchers and Catchers practiced for the first time out at Salt River Fields today. It was the first time that pitching prospects Tyler Skaggs and Trevor Bauer were on hand this year. We snapped this photo, which will appear in the D-backs 2012 Media guide. Normally we would set something up ahead of time, bring out some lights and take a great portrait, but this photo was requested last minute. So, we threw a flash on the old 5d Mark II, found a nice backdrop, shot in raw, did a few tweaks in photoshop and there you have it! What do you think?
