AAYBA World Series – Day 2

Written by a.pena. 1 comment Posted in: Baseball

6 July 2009, Flower Mound, TX:  “Well, beat the drum and hold the phone – the sun came out today!” I can’t help but think of this first line from the John Fogarty song “Centerfield”. Day 1 was filled with rain, some wind and all clouds but the sun did come out this day making it a beautiful day for some Baseball. I got some shots that I really liked on day 2 including a B.O.B. = Bat on Ball shot with the ball compressing on the bat! Thanx for reading.

Snow Cone Catch - Where the ball is caught at the end of the glove and just sticking out of the top resembling a snow cone.

Tagged well before he reached the base

Not, Even, Close - Tagged well before he reached the base which is just behind the second baseman on the left.

The Crash - On the top photo the runner puts his right shoulder into the catcher hoping to roll over him like a train. However in the second photo the catcher shows he was able to hold on to the ball even after that train crash.

Here's my second time catching the bat on ball where the baseball is compressing on the bat. I've gotten a ton of shots where the ball is about to hit the bat or just coming off the bat but in thousands and thousands of shots I've only gotten this shot twice.  The first one was on my Josh Hamilton shot I got in the 2008 season.

Day 3
This shot I liked because if you look closely enough you can see the person who is sliding in the reflection of the player with the glasses.

Here’s a 100% crop of that shot so you can see the reflection a little better.
