I learned my lesson in this thread. I removed my shots and won't post anymore until I have nothing but the ball in hard focus and everything else bokah'd out... =\

Agreed, but, lesson learned. Read the 'rules' before posting and then be careful...

Well, this is the best result from this weekend. I didn't spend a whole bunch of time on trying to nail it, so I guess it's to be expected.
Shot in shutter priority because I wanted to stop the ball's rotation, but due to the bright sun from behind me, it auto'd the aperture to f8 so the pitcher is not as blurred as I would like her to be.
Next time I'll fiddle around with the settings more, shoot in manual and spend more time trying to hone it in. Hey, memory's cheap, right?

It's not that you shouldn't post until it's perfect, but it'd probably good if people post shots where they are actually trying.

Don't go so overboard about it. It's just the pictures don't follow the intended theme... like in the "prime lens portraits" thread in the people section. There are pictures in there that are candid or even snapshots taken with a zoom lens....

It gets to the point where the wrong posts in here are entertaining, for me at least.

I gave this a try at a friend's baseball game. I wasn't sure if the 55-250 would be enough f-stop. Results... I missed, but the results were better than I expected. The ball is close and the player is decently out of focus, I think.

Was in manual mode with the shutter at 1/1000. Was zoomed into 250 and focused on the grass/dirt border right in front of home plate. With the 3 fps (which really seems slower at times) of the T1i, spray and pray wasn't really working. Just had to learn to time the shot, which is how I got this one.

These are fairly old, but thought I would include them here. Water polo. Relatively easy to stop the ball

A rib injury kept me from playing this day. Nothing like golf on a Friday to say good bye to some workers moving on to retirement or something new.
