7/14/15-Something Historical–1995 All Star Starting Pitchers Hideo Nomo and Randy Johnson by Jon SooHoo/LA Dodgers
It is hard to believe that it was 20 years ago when I was fortunate enough to be able to photograph my first All Star game. Being one of the few team photographers allowed in the outfield while MLB Photos Chief Rich Pilling set up to do the actual team photos, I was able to pull off this pretty cool image of the two starting pitchers…Los Angeles Dodgers Hideo Nomo and Seattle Mariners Randy Johnson between the team photos.
I consider it an honor to be given both of their permission to do this shot even with being Randy’s photo boss at the Daily Trojan years earlier. Thank you for letting me record your history gentlemen. Congratulations next week to you Randy.
