While going through some of the imges from last week I found these. The runner was clearly out by a mile. I think he knew it by the look on his face going into his slide.

That was one of the guys that I was shooting, but I was not ready to get that shot at home plate. Sweet shots with the last two saying it all!

Thanks guys, I just happened to be behind the plate and saw what was about to happen. All were shot with the 300mm.
Sounds to me like you were anticipating the action. Knowledge of the game, and being able to anticipate the next play is most important. You clearly demonstrated here how important that skill is.
I can't tell you how many times I've been in a good position, but missed a shot because I wasn't paying close attention or anticipating a play.
You did both here, and the results are sweet!

Thanks Jeff, you are so right. Anticipating where the action is going to be requires some knowledge of the game and knowing when to be ready definitely requires that we pay attention to what is going on. I was just happy that I was able to frame most of the shot without cutting off critical parts. Thanks so much for looking.

That is a sweet shot, looks like the catcher is looking at you and saying "I got him" with his eyes...:smile:
