    This is from one of the Cal Ripken Sr. College League playoff games a couple of weeks ago. Needless to say it was embarassing! Billy Rumpke CF and Corey Taylor RF just have not figured out how to call a ball. :eek:

    I rented the 300 f2.8 AF-S non VR. It is such a sharp lens... I now have a new NAS! :biggrin:

    Thanks guys. It was nice to see the RF come up with the ball after he fell. After the inning the dugout was huddling over my camera making sure I got the sequence.
     
  6. #3 looks painful. A knee full o' nads isn't a good thing.:eek:

  13. I'm glad the title of your thread caught my eye. It's a terrific series, and I bet they include it in their highlights reel at the end of the season.
     
  14. That's a great set of shots, and you really got the look on their faces.
