Excellent shots Bill!

The second is my favorite. You have captured a remarkable display of athleticism at the exact right moment, IMO. Good shooting! I'd be tempted to crop on just the pitcher, but I like your composition too.

Thanks for posting.

Thanks!  I'm an old-school shooter coming from the Velvia/Kodachrome days, so I compose for the final shot and almost NEVER crop.  Backward, I know...

Just my opinion, but- (Speaking of the second shot)

I like the 3rd baseman, tensed in anticipation, slightly out of focus in the background. Robertson is the focal point, obviously, in mid stride. But I think if you cropped out the third baseman the overall effect would be lessened. I like it.

This must have been the 8th inning.

Any shots of Rivera?

Rivera didn't appear on Thursday, but since you asked, here's the final pitch of Mariano Rivera's record breaking 602nd save...  I was SO LUCKY to be there that day!

Fantastic!! Thanks for posting this.  And yes, you were lucky. I traveled 1700 miles last season to see the Yankees play in Texas, mainly hoping to see Rivera, since I suspected at the time it would be his final season. He never appeared in the two games I saw, and was injured a short time later.

I gave one to Rivera, and have one at 20x30 printed on aluminum on my wall.

As a huge fan of MO's , that makes me smile. I wouldn't be surprised to see this print, autographed, in a sports memorabilia shop some day!
