It takes more than just a metal bat to hit a fastball, it takes a lot of mettle. The metal is in his hands, the mettle can be seen on his face.

great timing... I like the facial expression, you can tell his eyes are right on that ball

the metal bat doesn't seem to really be the focus of the picture.

Crop some to get the eye on that bat for a metal emphasis.

Nice action picture, but I feel that the bat is not the focal point.

I think this could have been cropped better. I see the bat, and that it is metal, but it does not appear to be the main subject of the photo. I can't help but be drawn to the facial expression.

What more beautiful picture of metal can there be than a baseball bat :) I always have a soft spot for good baseball pictures. Good luck!

a little "long shot" from metal - although I like the shot.
