Congrats Phil, capturing a ball on bat is as notable as catching a trophy bass. I shoot so many images trying to get ball on bat shots, I hate to admit how many images I delete on the computer. If you are asking for CC, I would crop the lady on the left out of the frame.

I used aperture-priority on that one, and these were the settings.

Camera: Nikon D40
Exposure: 0.001 sec (1/1250)
Aperture: f/2.8
Focal Length: 180 mm
ISO Speed: 200

Cool picture... what settings were you using? And what lens? I am new to the DSLR I only use Auto mode, but the ball is a blur. Thanks for any suggestions.
I use aperture priority 2.8 and a 80-200 two ring lens w/kenko 1.4. Also I have the MB-D10 grip to give me 8 fps.
