The 2018 Major League Baseball season is underway and LB returns for his eleventh year as on field photographer for SiriusXM Sports.
HIs first game for the year was at Oriole Park at Camden Yards in Baltimore, MD. However, the horrible spring weather led to postponements at games in both New York and Washington, DC. Coming up, Lou has games on his schedule in Detroit, Cleveland, Chicago, Philadelphia, and both the Yankees and Mets in New York City.
Brutus often combines Rock N Roll with baseball on his travels. When you see him hosting and photographing a concert festival, you can bet he’s also shooting any nearby baseball games, schedule permitting.
Lou will be back for his tenth season as an on field Major League Baseball photographer in 2017 for SiriusXM Sports.
HIs first game for the year was the preseason Naval Academy Baseball Classic in Annapolis, MD. The contest pitted the Washington Nationals against the Boston Red Sox on Terwilliger Brothers Field at Max Bishop Stadium. The tiny crowd was made up entirely of midshipmen from the academy who won tickets in a lottery. During the game, Brutus was honored to meet The Honorable Sean J. Stackley, Acting Secretary of the Navy, who was kind enough to slip LB one of his challenge coins.
LB has trips on the books to shoot baseball games in Cincinnati, Cleveland, Chicago, Philadelphia, Washington DC, Baltimore. and both the Yankees and Mets in New York City.
Brutus has been an avid photographer for close to two decades and more of his shots are finding their way into the public eye. Shaman’s Harvest and Tom Petersson of Cheap Trick are the latest to be using his pics for official purposes.
Q102 in Springfield MO, which airs hardDriveXL with Lou Brutus every weeknight, recently raised several hundred dollars for wounded police officer Aaron Pearson with photos donated by LB. The pics were of Halestorm, Cheap Trick, and Jackyl. Each was autographed by the band members and plate signed by Lou.
Finally, it appears Brutus will be back for his ninth consecutive season as an onfield Major League Baseball photographer. Look for images beginning Opening Day!
