Not even cold (40F) or wind (20mph) can stop the shooter from his task....what's up with the weather, 24 tonight will be an all time low for April

some shots from today's game from the local high school easter weekend baseball tourn

Randy, #5. What a great frozen ball shot. How fast to freeze that if I may ask?
Frank's right, still frigid here outside Chicago. For another week at least. Both my kids in soccer & baseball start next week !

thx Jim....
1/2000, but it's still alot of luck since AF is right on his face and the ball is in front of him. at f4 i got lucky.
At the plate the ball is parallel to the player so dof will help you freeze more often...at the plate i prefer 1/4000 for a fast ball pitcher. I use my left eye for the view finder and watch the pitcher w/ my rt eye. I do not fire bursts but time the pitch/shot and shoot once. After 1-2 games it becomes easy.

Nice shots Randy. Three of them are almost exactly the same. How about some variety? For spring sports, I keep a backpack of layers in my truck, including overpants and rain gear. Three three different gloves 1) Nomex flight gloves when it's not too cold; 2) ski gloves when it's cold; and mittens for when it's super cold. I can shoot with the Nomex and ski gloves on, but the mittens have a hole for my shooting finger.
