Youth baseball camp
I only started playing baseball in Hluboká in summer 1995. Almost 20 years ago, I was just about to enter the university. Quite late, but I learned to throw, catch and hit the ball. We had some great coaches, like Stan Luketich. He came to Hluboká many times in the last 20 years as a Major League Baseball Envoy coach, taking a break from his coaching job in the U.S. This summer again, after 10 years, he appeared in Hluboká. He is coaching the kids and he is the same. Like, he looks the same, he speaks the same, he makes jokes just the same. Well, he is probably not the same, he must have coached hundreds of players. And I must have taken over 200 000 photos…
And the youth camp this year is just great. Competent coaches, heaps of kids, and some of them excellent athletes. I just went to the field to take a short break from my editing and meetings, I enjoyed sitting, watching and photographing… and throwing a few balls to the ball bag.
