I shot both photos a few years back on assignment for USA Today. The assignment was to shoot a portrait of Nolan Ryan, the new president of the Texas Rangers. I wanted to photograph him in the dugout , so we walked from his office, across the park and through the tunnel that lead to the dugout. That's where I spotted the crudely drawn WIN with the red horseshoe. I shot a super fast snap and we moved on. I was not a big Rangers fan that day, but I'll admit I'm on the bandwagon now, big time.
Go Rangers, Win.
