The 2015 Photo Scavenger Hunt

Baseball is finally here again, and right on cue I'm here with the details for this year's Photo Scavenger Hunt. As you expected, I've come up with a brand new list of interesting/weird/crazy/difficult photos to get, but I've also added a bit of a twist to this year's contest.

In past years I've offered a handful of Bonus photos, but this year I've decided to offer a HUGE array of Bonus opportunities. So much so, in fact, that the number of Bonus points available is more than double the regular points. As you read through the list you'll find a grand total of 230 Bonus points!

For this year's Bonus points, I've gone through all five previous scavenger hunts and compiled a list of all items that were never successfully uploaded by ANYONE. Because these items were apparently too difficult for the entire myGameBalls community, I've decided to offer them all again -- at DOUBLE the points!

Here's the complete list. Good luck to all!
