Given their star-studded lineup, it’s hardly a stretch to think that A.J. Ellis and the Dodgers could run away with the NL West.

Major League Baseball’s opening night is Sunday, March 31st, Rangers vs. Astros. ESPN the Magazine’s MLB Preview 2013 issue features photographer John Huet‘s total-access shoot at the Arizona spring training camps of the Angels and Dodgers. Huet spent 4 days shooting each team’s workouts, an experience that went better after “Picture Day,” when he created an assembly line of photographer/set-ups to shoot 70 Angels and 68 Dodgers within a 2-hour period each (translation: less than 2 minutes per player). Getting brief one-on-one time instantly made the players more comfortable, Huet says, and eased his access as he roamed the camps. For more, follow ESPN the Magazine on Twitter @espnmag.

Seattle Mariners All-Star right fielder Ichiro Suzuki goes deep into the gap in right center to rob Atlanta Brave Robert Fick of an extra-base hit. Andruw Jones was on first base and was headed for third when Ichiro made this incredible grab. Jones cut across the infield failing to touch second base on his way back and was doubled off of first base. The Mariners won the game 2-1.

Photographed by Don Hamerman. The image is part of the series Found Baseballs, Hamerman’s ongoing project on old baseballs, mostly collected in a park near his Connecticut house where there’s been a baseball field in constant use for decades. One of Hamerman’s baseball photos appears on the cover of a new book from Knopf by former Mets pitcher Ron Darling, and a print of his was recently acquired for the permanent collection by The Museum of Fine Arts Houston.
This image was part of a 20×200 online art sale, which offers a series of 200 small prints for $20 each, and larger sizes for more. Prints of two more of Hamerman’s photographs go on sale April 8 at 2 p.m. on the 20×200 site.
