This shot got a lot of comments when it came out in the paper. Not sure why the paper used this one. I assumed they used one of the photos of him actually pitching when I started getting comments before I saw the paper.



A split second before getting hit in the head with the pitch. He was unhurt, and took his base.

Thanks for commenting. More luck than timing on the second pic. Would have been nice to have the ball on the helmet.

Very nice shots - nice and sharp and excellent subject isolation. What equipment - looks like it might have been a 300mm 2.8 or similar?

Thanks for the compliment John. Both shots with a Nikon D2H.

The first shot was taken with the 300 f/2.8. 1/2000 sec at f/2.8

The second was taken with the 80-200 f/2.8 . 1/2500 sec at f/2.8
