    what are the odds of me catching this again???????

    ironically, his mother tracked me down before the game, and asked that I get some good action shots of him. (apparently, I didn't get very many of him in the last tourney).

    her son is now part of a once in a lifetime pic.

    she better order a big print of this one.

    Jim, this image could not have been more perfect if you had PhotoShopped the ball onto the end of the bat, this is amazing timing. I just sit and stare at it.....wow!

    Jim, your right what are the chances of you catching this image again.
    Well, you got it this time. Great capture and timing. This image is fun to look at as Frank said.
  4. That's an awesome shot! I hope she orders a poster :biggrin:

    Truly amazing. I'm sure I'll never see that shot again.

    Thanks, Frank. I've stared at it quite a bit myself. when I saw it on the backscreen for a couple seconds, I thought it might be a good 'ball on bat' shot. when I first saw it on my computer, it took a few moments for me to realize what I had. I literally asked myself "where's the bat?"

    Thanks, Brian.

    Thanks Chris. I'm thinking about putting that shot in a seperate gallery and only offering it in 24"x36". :biggrin:

    Thanks, Gale.

    cool shot, Bruce.

    Thanks, haze.

    Wow...is that cool!

    Hopefully they see the uniqueness of the shot and will appreciate it for the rarity of it....but from a parents perspective, don't be surprised if they don't order a print....it is after all, a strike.
  11. LOL so true... :smile:

    But one for your own trophy wall... great catch!

    best, mark
  13. You ought to send that into Sport Illustrated for Kids. I bet they'd publish it.
    Incredible shot!

    Thanks, Mark.

    Thanks for the comments and the suggestion, Jim. I'll look into that.

    Indeed a nice shot. We all try to capture the bat making contact with the ball, but what are the odds of a capture like this :confused: 

    I can say it is the first I have seen.

    Way cool . 1 in a 100000000000000000 shot
  17. Jim, thank you for proving that even we lowly D50 folk can have good timing. That is a great shot...not only should his mother buy a big print, but you need to have one mounted on your wall as well, and the D50 bronzed beside it. Congratulations!!

    Jim, I forgot to ask in the earlier note - where are you in Indiana? I grew up in Frankfort.
  19. WOW....simply WOW! The kid has a great helmet as well...I havent seen that kind of graphics added on to a little league helmet before.
