This photo stream is a companion to my Midwest League website, A Fan's Guide to the Midwest League. While the Fan's Guide is no longer being maintained, I'm still taking photographs and adding them to this site.

Printing my photographs: I don't do prints. Your local camera shop can certainly do a better job of printing these than I can. Take this page along to show that I've given them permission.

These photographs are available for any non-commercial use without permission (folks who wish to use them commercially should contact me; I usually give permission.) Most were taken (or scanned) at 3000 x 2000 or larger, regardless of the dimensions of the Flickr photo; ask if you'd like me to replace a specific photograph with a larger copy. I try to respond to those requests promptly.

I get asked, occasionally, about my methods.

Given that I mainly post these photos quickly on game day, it's quite likely that some are mislabelled. Please tell me if you find such errors. Thank you!

It would also be helpful if others would help identify players I don't recognize. By the nature of things, most of these photographs were taken in Battle Creek, Grand Rapids, or Lansing, and I know the players on the Michigan teams better than their opponents.

Likewise, since I'm not editing the pictures in this stream, there are some rather ugly photographs here. And scanned photos may have odd margins, simply because I'm not doing much cleanup.


My Icon's based on this photo.

I've a second Flickr identity, which is used for more general, selective, and processed photographs. (There's some overlap between the two streams.) Feel free to visit both.

    "I do not get out to enough baseball games - that is for sure. But what first connected me with Joel were his great pictures of Minor League Baseball across the Midwest - especially in the Midwest League. These are great pictures that capture both the action on the field and life in the stands."
