I purchased a pair of PWs so I could shoot my D200 as a secondary camera remotely. It has really come in handy to catch some actions that you may have missed - especially if you're following the ball more than the players.

The outfield photo is with my 300/2.8 on monopod where as the home plate shot is with the 70-200 mounted on the fence.

The other team was not expecting this ball to be caught.

Cool idea, too bad the runner is oof (as you'd expect if you have the set up focused on the batters box/home plate area). Which can result in some nice play at the plate captures of swing shots when you dont want to be shooting them the old fashioned way.

You are correct - the remote camera is prefocused so anything not in the batter's box would be OOF. I've gotten some great photos with different angles (depending on the field) with the remote setup.
