I went down to O’Brien Field to photograph the next to last home game of the season of the Peoria Chiefs. Looking to shoot some behind the scenes stuff of the crowd rather than the game, after nearly six months of shooting baseball over the summer. Hope you enjoy the snapshots as I get ready for fall season.

The Peoria Chiefs left 10 runners on base, and couldn’t complete a four-game sweep as they fell 3-1 to the Cedar Rapids Kernels Tuesday evening at O’Brien Field.
