    Me too Frank.....It should be warmer now for sure..
  12. 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 !
  13. thx Mike
    u guys get it bad up there, it's 30f outside now which is better than the 24 they predicted
  14. only when I opened the box of locust from you last year :eek: 
  15. 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.
  17. Nice shots here! Love the way you have tha ball in most shots. Well done.

  18. thx Alex
    I wasn't paying attention when I blt the post, sorry about that

    that gear idea sounds like a good one for me for early spring soccer
  19. thx Rich
  20. Randy,
    the D200 will do 1/400th @ f4 huh?.... OK, I'll try it. Thanks!
    Alex, I have a hole in my shooting mitten too, but its for gesturing the Ump's... not shooting .. : ~ )

    I can't wait for Spring... weather.
