Tom Hagerty Joins Lakeland Local

2008 July 17 L-Tigers #23

We’re happy to report that a new contributor has joined with us at Lakeland Local. Photographer Tom Hagerty’s work will usually stand alone, but will occasionally illustrate articles.

We asked Hagerty for a short paragraph for his bio page:

“Growing up in Detroit, Tom Hagerty dreamed of watching baseball in sunny Lakeland, Florida. That dream came to fruition in 1998 when he moved to Lakeland. Tom has a passion for the Detroit Tigers, the Lakeland Flying Tigers and all things Detroit. His interests include reading, writing and photography. Tom and his wife have two daughters, four cats, one dog and a guinea pig.”

Today’s photo is of a July sunset at Joker Marchant Stadium. We’re don’t expect to publish a lot of guinea pig photos.

  1. As a fellow Detroiter, I welcome Tom. It seems a lot of us end up in Lakeland, either for the Tigers or just to escape the cold.
