    One of our traveling baseball teams started today and I ventured out to get some shots of my
    next door neighbors son...Thanks to Mike, and some restless nights thinking about all those
    great images, I drove to the field with a new way of thinking..I don't have the long glass
    yet to get "Mike" kinda shots on the big fields but I can get some of those shots on the
    smaller fields...Or at least I can try..My stuff is no where near as good but I have a new way
    of thinking when it comes to sports shots. .......

    Feel free to fire away at comments...I need and want to improve...

    Anyway...here goes...just a few from today

    I see the fence was not your friend today. But hey ya gotta go for it.
    They are all very nice. Cropped well. Good color and sharp
    The last one is a great shot.. Boy he does mean business.

    Thanks Ty....#12 has one of the sweetest swings I have ever seen for an 11 year old...
    He has the weight shift and hands that are cat quick..

    And strong like bull for a kid.....I told his dad he looked like a minature Tony Gwynn out there.
    He has the build and everything....I used to love watching Tony hit also.
