Thanks for the tip about cropping the girl out. I was more concerned about getting the shots in focus and interesting than DOF, that's why I mainly kept it around the f8 mark. My other concern with it was following the action using the hi speed drive (ok on the 60D its only 5.3 p.s.) as I only use it occasionally. The real reason I was there was to get photos of a friends son who was on the team.
