Other than the angle of the shots (the area these are shot from is 4' above the field level plus a fence), how do these look.

1. Didn't get him this time

If one of the aims is also to document the players, these are great.
IMO, to maximize impact, I would frame #1 differently differently and lighten his face to make his expression part of the image.

#1 is the best of the 3 because you can see the facial expression of the 1st basemen. I like the "stop action" as well. Lew, above, does have a good idea that I think works well, especially since you can't see the runners face.

also might want to consider a crop aspect ratio that will be printable if your intent is to sell them.

Number one is the shot. The other 2 are just a tad late imo

Agreed. Once the ball is in the glove we have no idea when it arrived there. Most action shots are more effective when there is a facial expression and a ball in the frame.

As a side note, that first baseman is going to get hurt if he doesn't move further to the edge of the bag. He's obstructing the runner and will soon get trampled.
