"As I looked at the old photo, my eye was drawn to the young boy hitting a ball in the foreground. I thought of how much recreational sports have changed. Now, there is so much brand-named gear, training sessions and field times to coordinate that it has become slightly “professional-ized” as compared to years gone by. Some changes have been for safety sake. That is why I asked my son, Cole, to assume the catcher's role with mask, glove, pads and chest gear and “inserted him” behind the batter for my mash-up. It is subtle, but the contradiction of time is there on careful observance." - caption provided by Annette Dupon, contest winner.;Winner of photo contest, Honorable Mention, Adult category.
