    "Cody, your pitches really act weird with your new grip. Will your fingernails hold up another inning?"

    Ha Ha.....neat caption. When I view this image, all I can think is that each of these kids should have this print. Thirty years from today when they are working their tails off, they would view this image and remember great days from the past. Nice shooting Donald.
     
  3. Great photo, love the DOF. Everyone has a D3! haha, what lens did you capture this with?

    Thanks Frank. I'll make sure both young men get a copy to remember this season by. They are great kids and will be playing many more years with my grandson.

    Fantastic. Brings back great memories of youthful baseball days. Your shots are a serious advertisement for the D3! Nothing I've ever shot looks this good!

    Did Phil and/or Joe Niekro retire to Alabama? Nice shot, great caption!

    Thanks. As Frank suggested - I'll make sure they have a copy to "take them back" a few years from now.

    Thanks. I don't do the D3 justice. They're some Cafe members who post sports photos on this forum that are truly gifted and set a standard for the rest of us to work toward. Frank, above, is one of those. He, and others, post shots that just blow me away.

    I don't believe even the Niekros ever achieved a knuckle-ball grip to rival Cody's finger-tip "pinch" grip.:biggrin: Every once in a while I guess you take a shot that makes you come up with a caption to fit the unusual. This was one of those shots.

    Thanks Tim. Your comments mean a lot to me. You're one of the photographers on this board that I try to emulate.
     
  11. That is a great shot Donald. Love the caption. Well done!
