High School baseball has come to an end for the season, now I need to find some Little League and girl's softball teams to shoot for the summer months. I thought that I'd share this image which was taken on a gloomy afternoon. Shot with a D2H, 300mm f/2.8 and 1.4x tele.

Thanks everyone, I was set up to cover a different play when the runner attempted to steal home. The infielder and catcher had other plans for the runner. He was out by two feet. How I wish that Brian had his eyes open!

Awesome shot Frank. I like the field level of the capture. Appears you were laying down on the ground in the 1B coaches box :tongue:

Well done!

An outstanding shot Frank, tack sharp and the depth of field is simply amazing for an F/4 aperture (or was it f/5.6 with the 1.4X converter?).

Wonderful image, Frank. Could you detail where you were on/near the field?

Thanks,
Greg, I was in the first row of the stands just beyond the dugout for this shot. This game was played on a local college's field and the first row of the stands is actually at the same level as the playing surface. I was shooting from a kneeling position in the stands with the lens just over the wall.
