Many of you might remember my post from back in March about my Atlanta road trip. The second half of that road trip was spent covering an epic matchup between Grayson and Loganville High School and their two highly touted prospects: Austin Meadows and Clint Frazier. Part of that post mentioned this awesome photo shoot I had with the guys, which at the time, I could not share. Well, the wait is finally over! I am so excited to share some of my favorite photos from the shoot.
The big reason why I couldn’t share these photos right away was because of the potential that they would be used during the MLB draft coverage. The first photos printed came courtesy of Baseball America.
The 2013 Baseball America Draft Preview cover featuring our photo of Clint Frazier. The cover wasn’t the only photo that ran in the issue. BA also used the photo below as part of their story.
As if it couldn’t get any better, a few days after Baseball America released the photo of their Draft Preview cover, Sports Illustrated called asking what other photos of Austin and Clint we had. Two weeks later, I get a call from a friend. He was reading his newest issue of SI on his iPad and this is what he saw:
Here it is in print.
I have been covering Austin and Clint for the better part of a year now. It has been fun! A lot of fun! They are talented guys, and I can’t wait to see what they do at the next level. The sky is the limit for these two, and it all begins this Thursday with the first round of the 2013 MLB Draft.
