->> Thanks guys. It was a labor of love. I'd really like to visit them sometime and sit down and talk (and shoot photos of course).

->> Great story. Back in the 1970's I remember the LA Times Photogs using the 70mm Hulcher with a 600mm Kilfit lens from the press box at Dodger Stadium. This was way before auto focus and they had preset "stops" for all the bases and the pitcher that you literally set with an Allen wrench. Back in those days a fast "motor drive" was 3fps and they were shooting at 20 with big negatives. I used it for some of the first "diagnostic" pictures for the original Volleyball Magazine. Imagine editing that stuff!
