A nice variation on the at-bat action shot -- I just had an entry where I went with the more common ball just-off-the-bat type shot.

It's interesting that you (apparently) don't care that the catcher is cut-off. I don't do sports as a rule ... is it usually considered OK to crop the catcher or ump as long as you have a good shot of batter/bat/ball? (I hope so -- it makes a lot more of my shots "acceptable"!)

nice color. I would ahve preferd it if the shot was a split second sooner with the ball away from the catcher more.
