Every Sunday, Boston Globe photographer Stan Grossfeld asks the subject of one of his photos to explain what’s happening in the shot.
Who’s up today: Columbus Clippers right fielder Jeremy Hermida, after robbing Pawtucket’s Drew Sutton of a two-run homer in a 6-5 Columbus victory at McCoy Stadium, Pawtucket, R.I., April 28, 2013.
Hermida: “The wind was blowing out pretty good to right, so any ball hit up in the air was going to fly a little bit. So I knew it was going to be pretty close. Went on the track for a couple of steps and knew it was a short fence back there. I just jumped up and luckily it fell in there. It’s rare that you get a fence that is that short out in right field, so it’s a little bit different the way you are hitting the wall. I played here a little bit before so I have a little bit better of a feeling than I would at someplace I haven’t played as much. I was pretty sure it was in there. When I got down, I snuck a peek at it and then regrouped myself for a second. You never know how things turn out. But once you feel that the ball is in there, you’ve just got to hold on so it sticks in there.”
