…except he was called out 😦
At least I had this photo to show him afterwards.
On another note, this is the first image taken with the newly acquired Nikon 70-200mm f/4G.
↑Nikon D810 + Nikon 70-200mm f/4G ED VR AF-S (@ 145mm).
Was this used as photographic evidence to dispute the call??
(I am guessing they don’t have a “video review” policy…)
I actually checked the camera’s LCD immediately and confirmed that the call was wrong. The umpire was good-natured and willing to admit he may have been mistaken… nobody on our team argued it (since it was such a difficult call).
Not to pick on the ump, but I’m not sure that’s his worst mistake. There are a couple of situations that could have made it tough (like a bunt), but I’d like to see him hustle out there and remove that bat since, with a play at the plate, it’s in quite a dangerous spot. As a bonus, he’d then have been in a better position to see the play at the plate from the left hand batter’s box. Tough job umping, everybody’s a critic. 😉
You really are getting these decisive moments wonderfully.
LOL Greg, you really know your baseball! Yes, we noticed the bat on the ground and the danger it posed.
These photos of your son’s team are just as interesting as shots from a major league game. May he make it to the bigs one day.
Thanks Nick! That’s very kind of you.
Yes it’s hard to believe sometimes that these kids are only eight years old… they play with a lot of passion and poise.
Great image! I’m a sports photographer and editor and reporter and proofreader and critic of our local weekly newspaper. Some of most fun moments is a sharp image of a blown call. I never show that an official, although I have been known to validate the boos from the affected portion of those watching. Usually quiets them down to know they got it right (or wrong). Still photography is just plain fun, sometimes. Keep up the good work!
That’s so nice of you, thank you.
I did let our coach and “fans” (parents) know, and they were all very civil/generous with their reactions. It’s all for fun, and most of the participants have a healthy perspective on things.
Should have proofed my stuff. “most [fun] moments,” “never show that [to] an official.” Didn’t mean to sound illiterate.
