Beautiful shot!!!!!!!! I know exactly what you mean about wasting shots just trying to get the exact moment. You cant get any better than that. You need to make sure his parents see this one, and they BETTER buy it!!!
What came to mind for me was the"Bull Durham" when you said that you almost thought of deleting the image. Costner sits on the back of the bus explaining to the rookies about the big leagues,and how even the batting practice balls are white.That wouldhave made it easierfor you to see it.
Great job! You never know, this kid may be playing somewhere someday.
