    Nice pics Butch, what lens did you use? Are some of these with the L series telephoto?

    For those of us who haven't quite memorized your stash of lenses - what focal length is your 'precious'?

    Nice pics. Is number 26 on the Number Crunchers a relative? There seems to be a few more pics of her than any of the others.....
    All the best,

    Those L lenses do seem to be outstanding glass, perhaps my only regret about choosing Nikon over Canon!

    Ron,

    No... I don't even know who she is, the pics were taken based solely on opportunity. Some players who were next up to bat would stand in my way (not intentionally) blocking my view, others didn't get on base much.... etc.
    All the game pics were taken from my vantage point at the 3rd base dugout.

    None are family and there is only a couple that I even know their names

    I did my best to balance things out... I tried to capture emotion and/or action when possible

    I missed the shot, but #26 took a line drive to the inner thigh, and owie what a bruise. I bet she feels that today LOL

    The girl that played first and the guy with the dog provided the most opportunities for whatever reason.... I have quite a few more of theirs that I didn't include in the group. (redundant feeling images mostly)

    The lens is the Canon EF 70-200mm f/4.0L USM
    (entry level for an L series)

    Wonderful lens for outside, daylight use... amazing sharpness and color balance/saturation
    It was actually my first time really using it at this level.
    I'm pleased with my effort for my first try, but I'll do better the next time.

    hehehehehe Gabriel, just trade that old nasty Nikon in and get ya a Canon my friend.
