  1. Well this was an interesting game, saw a first major league homer for the new kid on the team, Alex Avila, saw a missed tag in a run down at third lead to a six run Tiger lead, then continued arguing by Twins Manager Ron Gardenhire get him tossed in the second, and finally a 10-8 win after giving up 2 in the top of the 9th... WHEW!

    Love number 3! Your exposure is great on these. Were in manual or AP?
     
  13. Thanks gang!

    All of these were shot with the D3 & 200-400 in Manual, cloudy WB, and often holding and resetting the AE-Lock due to changing light conditions.
