Hey, that shot of Balentien is pretty darn good. The composition is great! What lens were you using?
It's my favorite of the pre-game shots. I love the comp and the color (I cropped it just a tad for uploading here). I had the 400mm f/3.5 on the monopod. That turned out to be TOO much zoom for the batters at bat (as was the 300mm f/2.8 really) but I had my D1H with 80-200 f/2.8 for those shots.
Tell you what, I swap you a killer shot of Ichiro that I took at ST for one of Feierabend in his delivery!
I'm sure that can be arranged. Churchill was sitting with me, giving me an assignment to catch the ball coming right out of his hands, and I think I got at least one or two. That's actually a tough thing to do...
GS52 will always be my favorite player, even if he's no longer with the M's. Enjoy Dodgerville, George!
