    Haven't been around much lately..Just has been a crazy 3 weeks for me...Was able to
    get out to a double header yesterday for the first time in a while...Took about 150 shots
    and actually kept most of them...Here are just a few...Hope you enjoy.

    Good Afternoon Rod, I was just about ready to have the internet detectives head out to locate you! Hey, this is a real nice series of images. Tough, tough, tough to handle blowing out those shiny orange shirts, but you did an outstanding job with your exposure settings. The backgrounds are unobtrussive and the action is sweet. I am shooting a bit of Little League on Tuesday, I hope to do as well as you did with these. I haven't shot baseball in almost two weeks, I'm undoubtedly a bit rusty....but I can't wait to shoot the little guys for a change. Thanks for sharing and don't stay away so long anymore.

    Thank you Frank...You are way too kind...I wasn't as concerned about the
    jerseys as I was the anoying backgrounds..I tried to stay around f3.2 - f4
    which brings in more of the background...But I think my pics turned out a
    little better this time out. Your outing will be fine. And you being rusty only
    after 2 woulk take a lot longer than that for you to get

    Thanks Randy Look forward to some of your super sports shots again. Or has
    Josh turned you into a "portrait" guy yet ?? :biggrin:

    Thank you Gale. It was nice to be out shooting baseball again. I have a 12 team
    tournament I am doing in 2 weeks.....Very nervous for sure.

    Thank you Haze...
  8. Hey Rod,

    Great stuff. Whoever that was pitching was throwing kind of hard by the looks of the dust flying out of that catchers mitt. Keep them coming.

    Thanks Topher...I like shooting youth baseball..It's fun...Lot's of emotion.
    Don't sell yourself short...Your stuff is great !

    Thank you much Ty...I don't think he was throwing that hard..Maybe the catcher
    just rolled his glove in the dirt first ? :biggrin:

    Thanks again...BTW - sorry I missed the gathering in Chicago..Looked like a
    fun time..Just too many things on the calendar :Unsure:

    Thanks Peter. It was a fun and warm day for sure.
