My wife's cousin is in town for a softball tournament - they come every year. Affords me a good chance to practice action shots. Her cousin's daughter is the pitcher, but I got some good shots of the catcher too. Definitely need faster FPS.

Great shots.... Now that I have a D200 I have yet to take it somewhere that I needed the extra fps.

Thanks! I like the look in the catchers eye in the second one the best. I think my son did too.

I think there is a lot of opportunity to make some money at these softball tournaments. If you can print on site like Sheba did for her event, you can make the impulse buyers pay good money for pics. That's about all you will get from them, because most of them are from out of state and don't want to fool with ordering online.

She's my niece. Wasn't so intimidating the next day when she took a line drive to the nose...:eek:

Seems to me she might look all that much more intimidating. Nice shots.

She's fine. After a trip to the ER (small bone broken in/ behind her nose) she went out and pitched the next day. She's pretty darned good. Unfortunately, the other pitcher on the team isn't.
