I usually am the coach in Rec ball so I don't get too many of these opportunities to get images of my son. I think this is a set of keepers
These where shot thru a chain link fence with my 70-200
3rd baseman fielding a bunt. C&C Welcome

Hard to tell but the face of the fielder looks a bit out of focus...maybe motion blur? What was your shutter speed? Try and shoot baseball at 1/2000 or more on bright days and only go below 1/1000 if light is horrible and fading. Also, you need to compensate for harsh shadows on sunny days by overexposing +1 to +1.5 EV to lighten shadows on faces. Finally crop images tighter when processing.

I know this field! 70-200 I think is too small. These looked like they may have been cropped down which is giving the soft focus look. I shoot inside with a 1.4x and believe it's to short, but plan on going to a 300 2.8 shortly. I was going to go to this game but my back told me no way...maybe I'll see you out there next time.

The last one may work as a personal keep. I don't see anything here that would be "saleable" so to speak. They all are a little soft. They also could use some cropping.

I would also suggest getting a 1.4 TC.

Keep it up! It takes a little time and a little practice.

These are not cropped at all i was sitting on the ground shooting thru a fence. I agree on the soft part I am curious on how to get them sharper.
I do not own a 1.4 yet but plan on getting one soon. I feel all my images with the 2x are even softer than these.

I shoot with center point focus and ai servo.
Typically like to shoot av mode to avoid changing settings from shot to shot depending on clouds.
Any advice on getting sharper images is surely welcome.
I think my gear is capable I just need the tweeking :)

Magic, I will be at every game I can as my son on the team. And this is my reason for shooting. If you see my sto by and say hi.

I am out of town and cant check my settings on the posted pics but I wll when I am able.

As far as sellable I know they are not magazine quality..but this was my son having a great game and that makes them prieless to me.

Thanks again for the comments,
Jeff

They're all under exposed, if your going to shoot in AV dial in some +EC, this will help with the cap bill shadows.

As Chris said add some exposure compensation. On my MIIn I usually have it at +2/3 to 1 full stop when I shoot AV.

I will give the exposure a bump to see if I can get rid of the cap shadows.
Thanks again.

This one looks to be sharpened too much.

Much better... more light on the player's face.

Try cropping above the pitcher's head to declutter the distracting powerlines at the top.

Thanks John and Clarence.
I agree slightly over sharpened and the crop is much better on your Clarence.
