Troy:

Love the shot - but a couple of Q's:
1. U12? or U10?
2. through the backstop fence?
3. Did you alter the BG at all - and by that I mean the cross-hatching from the fence.
4. Focus Mode?

I ask because my 7d arrives tomorrow, and I shoot my son's game Saturday morning - any tips for setting up the body for b-ball?

Thank you!

1. This is U10
2. This is through the backstop fence with my 70-200 f/4L handheld. My settings were: 1/2000th, f/5.6, and ISO1000...I could have dropped to f/4 and lowered ISO a stop, but I also wanted to make sure I got more of him in focus throughout the pitching motion so that is why I was at f/5.6. I was about 15 feet from the backstop.
3. I did not alter the BG at all...the fence is how it looked straight from the camera.
4. I was using AI Servo with Center Point Focus (actually I use back button focusing and I also manually focused this before the pitch). That way I was sure I had good focus and then I fired the shutter throughout the pitch. I love back button focusing on my 7D.

As for tips...if you haven't tried back button focusing you should. You have to go into the custom settings and set it up that way. If you aren't familiar with it, I would practice first at one of his practices and not try to do it for the first time at Sat.'s game. The 7D is fun for sports...this was my first baseball game using my 7D and I was very happy. Have fun and good luck to your son!

Troy:

Both my 50d and 60d have the custom func. for Back Focus - and I freely admit I've never tried them - maybe not tomorrow, but I will. Can't do it at practice, since I'm the coach though. That's good and bad from a photographic perspective - good: I have better sight lines at the games than anyone else can get (but not necessarily the best light - I'm restricted to my sideline); bad: I'm generally too busy to get the shot on the bang-bang plays.

for pitchers, I tend to be right at the backstop, with the hood resting on the chainlink - so I'll try your technique of being a bit further back - but I do truly envy that nice warm light you got.

Again, wonderful pic.

Wow, coaching and photographing would be difficult for sure. I was very lucky to have great golden hour sun for most of this game. Thanks again!

OK, I had some time to get a few new pictures uploaded. I finally saw the hawk I have wanted to get a picture of. I watched this beauty from when it hatched up to now for 8 years and its new mate. It was about 100-150 yards away in a tree. A 70-200mm lens is not long enough to get it. If I want pics of birds, need much more than 200mm.

Here is another pic. This is with the 17-50mm. It is not a good macro lens. I had to stand quite a bit back to get this.

I think he is referring to the age group.

Under 12 years, Under 10 years, etc..

U10 = Under 10 years old;
U12 = Under 12 years old.

Its simply an easier way to describe what age group the kids are, because the names vary (i.e. PONY U10 = Mustang; Little League U10 = Minors - most coaches will know the correlation, but not necessarily the parents).

For most leagues, the period is 2 years of eligibility (8, 10, 12, 14 etc.), though kids can and do "play up" based upon ability (e.g. I have an 8 year old on my team, who should be U8, but is capable of playing with - and is better than - most 10 year olds).

Age is determined by game year, which is not necessarily calendar year - so you can have an 11 year old playing U10 under some circumstances.

Travel ball can go yearly, so you can see odd one's like U9 in that milieu.
