I see one tiny picture - too small to make out what it is. Can you post a larger image? Or, if it's a series - please post all the images you want feedback on.

Armando,
If you're forced to shoot through the fence you want to get your lens right up by the fence. When you do that, you won't see the fence in the image at all.
THese shots were done through similar fencing - but you don't see the fence at all:




You've got some nice snaps of your son - but the links are distracting. Getting the lens closer (within an inch) will take care of that.

John,

Appreciated your comment, and I will take it in consideration.

Next game will be is a couple of weeks, and I will try that as well as from inside the field.

This is my first year with a DSLR and I appreciated every comment and advice I can get.

by the way great shots. Congratulations

I have never had a coach stop me shooting from inside the fence at a game about the age of your players, I find shooting from inside and leaning against the fence just past the dugout or 2/3 the way to first with a 70 - 300 tele is about the best position as most batters are RH and you can get a play at all the bases and home. Shooting the pitcher you need to be outside fence behind the catcher like you were, but closer to the fence.

Am definitely NOT a sport photo expert... But, even with the fence pattern these are some very fine photos! Great expressions and good action. Will look forward to your even better ones next time, taken from inside the fence.

Hans, you are right, they will not stop you, the problem was that particular day was really crowded, and I did not want to lose my spot (seat).

Mole, Thanks for a really encouraging comment. I can assure you that I will try, and try, and try. Hopefully I will get better.

This weekend will be different, and I can tell, I will take in consideration all the advice from every one.

Will see how turns out.
