Harry Scull Jr.The Buffalo News
There was much to like in this category, starting with a great job of seeing light and graphics in the simple situation of players leaning out of the dugout. A really beautiful frame. Second is a nice moment that is simple and direct. Third beat out many other fine jubilation photos (there were a number of very nice track, lacrosse, and baseball celebration photos in the category) because the juxtaposition of player and umpire gave this photo a little something extra.
