->> I don't like tooting my own horn, but I got a first for me: a shot in "Leading Off" in SI. Only for the iPad edition, but still pretty good.

Here's a link to the photo:

I have never had a Leading off, but I still remember my first ZOOM like it was yesterday! Such a giddy feeling!

Images used in Leading Off are not GWC-level images. They are among the best in the world.
