This was the last game for the Lady Patriots. They lost the Sectional Championship to the Lady Appleman 8-4. The Patriot baseball team is still alive in their Sectional Championship. They beat the Trojans 3-2 and won the first game of three against the Cougars. Here are some pics from the games. Rebel T1i and Sigma 70-200.

Very well done.

Hey thanks! You gave me some sound advice about cropping and positioning when I posted some photos from the beginning of the season. Really helped me a lot.

Excellent, mrwilt. All good shots. Especially liked the action in #2. Like the runner was going to get around THAT catcher! Also, hope the guy bunting didn't foul that one straight up and into his face. Good technique bunting the ball in FRONT of you like you're supposed to.

Great shots. You're really nailing the shots all the way around.

Thank you, dave. That play at home was pretty funny. The catcher dropped the ball, but she covered home plate so well that the runner never reached the plate! The runner had her right foot tapping back and forth trying to find the plate but she was about 6 inches just shy of the plate. The catcher was able to grab the loose ball and tag her out. It was pretty comical. The guy bunting the ball was the pitcher for the Cougars. He actually kept bunting the ball foul down the third base line and was called out.

Thanks Frank...ie. You should be able to get some great shots with that combo. Here's one of the shots from the first scrimmage of this year. Not the best positioning for getting this photo. No one wants to see the backside of the ump - it just stands out too much. At this field, they have a fabric that runs around the backstop that's about 6 feet tall. I finally got smart and brought a step stool so that I could get shots directly behind the catcher - shooting through the chain link fence. A much better picture.

I try and move around as much as possible to get better angles for the shots. The 70-200 will only reach so far. If there's a runner on second, I move to where I can get a good shot if there's a play at third. Same thing for plays at home. I pre-focus on the base, too. Set your camera up for back button focus, focus on the base and wait for the action. Also, know the sweet spot for your lens. I find f3.5-f4.0 is pretty sharp for my Sigma lens. f2.8 is too soft. Hope this helps some.
