Went out to my first ever pro game on Monday. Had to take the camera with me ;) .
I had no idea how good an angle I would have but was pleasantly surprised.
I think these turned out OK considering I was using the nifty-250.

The darn net was in my way for the most part. Ortiz took that one deep. I wish I shot a burst and maybe would have gotten a better shot split second later.

I was expecting little league or something. Way to rub in another loss for an "A's" fan!:o :D

Nice shots nonetheless!!

Thank you all.

Yes, I guess since its the best value zoom out there it must be a sister to nifty-fifty.

@John: not rubbing it in at all. I am a Yankee fan who ends up going to see the Sox as his first ever MLB game. I am definitely not the one to talk smack here. ;)

Nice shots.
Looks like you had pretty good seats.

Thanks Jarhead.

Yes the seats werent bad at all. We were under the roof so there was a pole in the way that was blocking part of the outfield but cant complain overall.
