It's winter and if you live someplace warm, you might just have Winter Baseball.

Hi TexPhoto.
Nice timing, that must have had some power behind it. (The bat is snapped isn't it?).

Cheers, Graham.

Thanks, glad you like the photos.  That bat was broken.  I was well past the outfield and saw it happen before the very loud crack of sound hit.  You can see the pitcher's reaction is funny too.  I must admit, my timing is thanks in part to a 10fps on 1D4.  I try to anticipate a swing, and fire 2-4 shots if the batter swings. 

Comically the team's official photographer can be seen in the photo as well.  I tried talking to him, but he seemed annoyed to have me there.

Hi Tex.
Yes you bet he was annoyed, you got the shot from the POV he should have had! Seems a funny place to stand, behind the batter.

Cheers, Graham.

Nice shots!  I like the rundown tag and the third baseman's "did I get em" look to the ump.  Good work catching the reaction shot just after the play.  This is something that I often miss.

These glimpse's into warm weather sports are welcoming on a Thanksgiving Day in Minnesota with temps in the single digits.  Thanks for sharing.

Love the first baseman's dive for the ball.  Please share some photo details -- lens, ISO, shutter.

Thanks.  I mostly shoot sports in Manual mode, set to the max aperture, usually f2.8.  Shutter for baseball normally 1/1000.  I use Auto ISO, so it's not really manual.  My long lens is a 400mm F2.8 IS Version I, and shorter shots are a 70-200 F2.8 IS II.  If you click on any of the photos you'll see it on Flickr which shows all the info from the photo.

I love shooting baseball -- interesting enough, in shot #91, the runner is NOT out.  The ball must be IN the glove for a tag, and the fielder is holding it in his right hand, tagging with his left.

Not sure what the umpire called (do you remember) but if he called "runner out" he's mistaken.

Going back a few frames, I see he left no doubt. 2 hand touch.
