I'd suggest a narrower aperture - 5.6 - bump up ISO and drop shutter to compensate. The ball just isn't sharp enough just yet and a couple more inches of DOF could make a big difference.

Hi
What are some outdoor games that older kids can play?I work with 10 and 11 year old kids and they're getting tired of the same old games. We play kickball tennis baseball capture the flag stuff like that. What are some other games you know of that they might enjoy. Its a camp type situation and I need some ideas!
