Default Kids Baseball

I haven't been to one of my grandson Mason's baseball games yet - but was asked to go along this evening as he was playing the town that Anne and I live in.

I felt a little awkward taking my E-3 and 50-200 with me to grab a few shots of Mason playing - - - but tried to be discrete and didn't shoot many pictures like I normally would. The teams are made of boys and girls in the 8 to 10 year old age group. Here is a selection of them:

1 ) Mason playing outfield


2 ) Fist pump after getting someone out


3 ) The Michael Jordan of pitching - Mason was pitcher for about 3 innings

Someone forgot to tell you that you can't shoot sports with that outfit. Nice work.

#3 is a classic... absolutely top quality. Framing, focus, action, expression. Superb.

Is this the moment parents are the most attentive too? Your kid is up and will he hit it? If he does and can run fine. But what if he strikes out?

It's amazing that your shots make the kids look like they're pros! I like #6, "Running The Bases."
