Keeping his eyes on the ball..... all the way to the catcher's glove

OK, first let me say I love the 1st two shots - just because of the poor kid's expressions. He looks absolutely terrified

Now, a couple comments:

Overall, not bad - especially in low light.

On the first shot, try not to crop out the feet. This happens a lot - especially when you shoot while standing. In all 3 shots, watch your horizons - they're slightly off level but that's easily fixed in PP (this type of thing is more easily noticed when you have vertical or horizontal lines in the shot - which in baseball there's almost always a fence.

The thing I like best is all the dust coming off the catcher's mit in shot 3. I understand the purpose of your framing (eye on the ball) - I just think it's a cool aspect of the shot.

Good work for a first time - hopefully you'll get a chance to shoot during the day when you can really have some fun.

These are great shots in night baseball. This makes want to run out and get a 20d right now. The only thing I would like to see is a faster shutter, 1/400 to stop the ball and the bat.

Thank you,I was using the aperture mode and had the F Stop at 2.8 with the iso set at 1600.The fastest shutter speed I could get was between 1/200 to 1/320
