We are excited to be working with Michelle Conklin Photography Studio in Maple Park for our Picture on Sunday April 25th between 3 and 5 PM. You only need to attend your team’s time slot indicated below, please arrive 15 minutes early to gather with your team outside.

You can also browse our spirit wear table that we will be taking orders for, more information will be coming out along with an order form.

Please place your order before the photos are taken using this link.

Your team will check in with the studio staff on the lower level of the building. You will be entering through the building main entrance then exiting out the side entrance to ensure COVID friendly protocol.

Cleats are not necessary, please bring your bat and glove.

Please wear a face covering while in the building up until you take your photo.

The studio is located in Maple Park on the corner of Route 38 and County Line Road in a brown brick building with a green roof and two tractors in front of the building. The building is next to the Casey’s Gas Station. The address is 1100 S County Line Road, Maple Park, IL 60151. We don’t recommend using the address in your GPS because it leads you about a half a mile away from the building location. The studio is on the lower level of the building.
