Bunt on Bat .... and other goodies

Discussion in 'Sports Photography' started by Harry Lavo, Jul 4, 2007.

  1. I finally got my first ball-on-the-bat...assuming that bunts count!:smile:

    1/250s f/4.2 at 100.0mm

    A week and a half ago I posted some pics from Newport, some of which were of the Holyoke Giants pitcher. Here is that same pitcher again last night, huffin' and puffin' his way through another six and a half innings of one-run ball (the Giants finally won 3-2 in the top of the ninth when the right fielder threw a one-hop strike to the third baseman, Keeping the potential winning runner from stretching the hit from first to third and creating the third out).

    1/750s f/5.6 at 300.0mm

    And here's one I just like....the confident anticipation of the first baseman combined with the hell-bent-for-leather drive of the baserunner.

    1/1000s f/5.6 at 300.0mm

    The apatures are high because I am still being forced to use my backup Sigma 70-300 rather than the Nikon 80-200 which is still in the shop.

    Thanks for looking. C&C are always welcome.
