Some pitchers have good balance upon release of the ball. This pitcher displays an uncanny balance with his legs displayed here. I don't particularly like shooting in mid-day cloudless days as the harsh shadows do their thing, but I drove by and noticed the game was in progress.

For those who have not tried this the two pitching posts I have made where shot through a webbed fence. Notice that there is no mention of the fence in the image. Shallow DOF will remove the close up web as you get your camera lens almost touching the fence.

Another strong capture of the pitcher completing his pitch with the slightly blurred baseball creating an illusion of movement towards the plate. All the colors (the fields as well as that of the uniform) stand out strongly in the image.

Good hint with the shallow DOF Gary.

Outstanding stop action on this pitcher. You filled the frame so completely with all the action. ...(any chance he could come to St. Louis and start the season with us?)

Hi Gary, I'm always looking forward to seeing more of your your work. Another interesting capture and a well captured one at that. Nice work!

I used to be able to balance myself like this when I was 18! :-)
Another excellent sports stop action shot Gary!
