These are photos of EKU junior pitcher Christian Friedrich. Friedrich has been selected as a 2008 pre-season first team All-American… and the 2008 pre-season OVC pitcher of the year. He has been rated the 6th best major league prospect by Baseball America. Also, according to Baseball America, his curve ball is the best in the country. Lighting was inspired by the photography of Mark Cornelison of the Lexington Herald-Leader. I’ve been a fan of Mark’s sports portraits for as long as I’ve known about the guy.
