It was very hot (heat index 96) and with the 12 Noon game the sun was blistering. Here's a few!

Composite bats really flex!

Bases loaded and she got the job done with a two run RBI single.

Could be cropped tighter but I'm leaving room for the buyer to size it their way...geez I sound like a hamburger commercial.

Nice shot of the catcher - So much respect for the girls/guys behind the plate! especially in the heat!

like 1 and 3, the contact in 1 is excellent and that catcher shot is great.

Missed Regionals...these are from Quarterfinals.

The bad - the score was 7 - 2...after she touched the plate it was 7 - 6:cry:...the good we still won, 9 - 6 and on to State!!:D

Andy,

WOW, very nice shots, this is quite impressive. I too will be starting to shoot some baseball games in a few weeks and I just hope I can capture some of the shots the way you have. Do you mind sharing your setup please?

Thanks,
Karim.

Very nice series of shots. You've captured the game excellently. #1 is probably my favorite of the bunch. I always hated catching in the heat. We played a game in Florida in August my senior year. Ohio is hot enough w/ the humidity, but Florida in August just sucked.

Just a head's up though, you're only permitted 8 images hosted elsewhere. Don't want you to get dinged or anything.

Allowed # of images: In 'Photo Sharing' section:

  1. You may attach *) maximum of two (2) photos per thread. This means: you may attach up to 2 photos when you start a new thread. You may attach additional photos if requested, but only in a reply to other member's post and request.
  2. You may embed **) maximum of eight (8) photos per thread. This means: you may embed up to 8 photos when you start a new thread. You may embed additional photos if requested, but only in a reply to other member's post. If photo size exceeds 1024x1024 box, you may not embed it: post a link (URL) to it instead.

Thank you...Canon Mk III with a 70-200 f2.8L w/1.4x, I try to keep the shutter at or about 5000 to freeze bat and ball (3200 being low). ISO usually comes in at 800 (in Av) but can go as high as 2000...any higher, things get speckled.

Thank you!! I guess I read it wrong - thanks! Is it 8 per thread, per new thread, not including continuation of a thread?

Thanks again - Andy

too many shots to really offer specific crits so I'll just say that this is an great series. exposure, timing, action, sharpness, and color are all very good so you really cant ask for much more...especially under mid day sun!
