Drove past a youth baseball league today and decided to stop and try my new lens. Here are a few of my favorites. Comments welcome!

Nice expressions in #1, 2, and 4 but they need to be shot and cropped tighter to maximize the player and minimize the background distractions. Number 5 is very nice but could use a slight exposure boost.

Good faces , but I have to echo the statements about the need to crop 'em tighter.

cheers !

Thanks folks for the comments. I tend to like a little more environment around them but sports photography does seem to be tighter usually. Might upload a tighter version later on to compare.

Good job. Tighter crops are much better. My only other suggestion would be to up the shutter speed above 1/1000. It will stop the ball. Here's an example at 1/2000:
