heading out to the yankees game today. It's a bit of an overcast day and I am trying to figure out what settings to use..

I will be use an 18-55 lens and a 70-300mm lens...

I am thining on the 18-55 and wide open apperture and a shutter speed of about 1/60 and an iso setting of 200 should do the trick...does that sound right? or am I missing something...Again, please understand, all of this was greek to me about 2 months ago...

any custom settings you can think of would be great...
thanks guys..

If your planning on capturing action shots your gonna need much faster shutter speeds. You may also find the 18-55 is not nearly long enough. I would probably shoot at iso of 400, and a large enough aperature to achieve a shutter speed of 1/500 and use the 70-300 to capture action shots.
