Photographer, Deanne Fitzmaurice and Joan Ryan present Freak Season: Behind the Scenes with SF Giants Pitcher Tim Lincecum from Spring Training to the World Series.
Freak Season is an intimate four-color photography book of San Francisco Giants pitcher Tim Lincecum. In his first three full seasons in the major leagues, Lincecum has earned two Cy Young Awards and a World Series Championship. Contrary to his public image of rock-star pitcher, Lincecum is an introvert who keeps company mostly with childhood friends and shuns the spotlight.
He allowed unprecedented access to Pulitzer Prize-winning photographer Deanne Fitzmaurice during the 2010 season. What emerges from Fitzmaurice’s photographs, and author Joan Ryan’s accompanying text, is a fearless competitor whose knees buckle when he has to speak in public, a restless adolescent who can’t sit still through a movie but has such hyper-focus on the mound that he sinks into what he describes as a sort of netherworld.
