Love this game and had to post one photo of Canada's Brett Lawrie from British Columbia hitting for the Toronto Blue Jays against the Arizona Diamondbacks at Chase Field, Phoenix. Jays beat the D-Backs 10-4. Great game with lots of hits and home runs.

The Toronto Blue Jays third baseman and last year's American League MVP with another monster hit against the Arizona Diamondbacks. Jays won 10-4. A large number of Jays fans from Canada in their blue shirts were at the game at Chase Field, Phoenix. Donaldson's ball speed following contact with the bat has been clocked about 120 mph. Too slow a shutter speed to freeze the bat and ball at contact. My timing in this photo was just lucky.
