    Apologize if this has been posted here before, but I just discovered it. Former MLB pitcher Jerry Reuss is apparently quite an accomplished photographer.

    He's been photographing ballparks for years, and has posted the photos on his Flicker account. Many of the parks no longer exist (or have undergone major renovations), so there is some great stuff here:

    I love the old pictures of The Ex in Toronto. Would love to have that old Atari billboard.

    Spent many days and nights over the years at the Ex watching the Blue Jays, Argos and concerts (you can see the bandshell next to the scoreboard). His pics make it look much better than it really was which is a real credit to him.

    I did a series of stories on Twins reliever Jim Hoey as he tried to come back 4 years after arm surgery.

    In his downtime he photographed baseball parks. Great eye and execution.

    http://jimhoey5.com/portfolio_category/photography/ There aren't many parks on that site, which seems pretty new.

    His flickr has more park photos (scroll down). https://www.flickr.com/photos/jhoey5/

    Hahaha, good lord look at that dump. I barely remember seeing some grainy tv games there, and have never seen such clear pics.


    That does not look like a fun place. How'd you like to be sitting down near the right field foul pole, on a bleacher, your seat facing the right fielder, so you have to crane your neck to watch the batter.

    Jerry Reuss has some good stuff but will never approach the artistic
    sense that Justin Verlander brings to his photos.

    I guess Reuss didn't get a photo of the 3-foot-long dildo he had that he would bring out during postgame interviews in the clubhouse. If there were a bunch of TV and radio guys around a player with their hand mics and boom mics, he would slither that thing through so it would be right next to the face of the player. It even had call letters on it: PNS
