    Every so often my wife feels the need to torture me and insists I go to
    a baseball game with her. This is the result of my day at the ball

    Thanks for sharing. Next time, go to a minor league game. You can get
    much closer without the need for the 400 f/2.8L IS or the 500 f/4.

    Oh yeah, the hot dogs are much cheaper and better tasting as well.

    Nice set Jim... and even better captions.
    The photo of the guy whom you said "looks like he knew what he was
    doing"... me thinks that is Corey Patterson, trust me, he doesn't know
    what he is doing :)

  4. Very nice pics, Jim. You captured the actions of the game very well.

  5. Nice pictures, for someone who doesn't like sports.....Many years ago I
    worked with a friend who loved baseball, and kept trying to get me to go to
    a game with him. Finally I gave in, and we went to see the Oakland A's play
    the Braves at The Coliseum one evening. It was the first game I had seen
    since I was a kid, and I was like 35 years old.....Well, we saw Jim
    "Catfish" Hunter pitch a perfect game.....No, "Brave" ever reached first
    base.......The last guy up got a 3/2 count and kept fowling pitches....About
    6 of them, until Hunter finally struck him out.........I haven't seen a game
    since. It's just as well. Nothing I could see would have topped that.

    It was the Twins, not the Braves. Rod Carew didn't suffer through too
    many 0-for-3 games.

    You know, old-timer, they say that your memory is the second thing to
    I forget what the first is.

  7. Well, it can't be TOO important, with a nickname like "Wild Bill".
    You're a valuable asset to this newsgroup Bill!

    You obviously know the game quite well. Triggering the shutter at the
    "decisive moment" was no stroke of luck. Shots are splendid! You should
    (1) spring for a 400mm F2.8, and (2) take your wife to more sporting
    events and keep firing away Look out S.I. photographers!!

  10. Now, then, when it comes to fowls and BB, Bret's got a human sized one.....

    But BB has improved in that the pitchers are filmed, and so are less
    inclined to foul the ball with hair jiz, vaseline, terps, tars, etc.


    john mcwilliams who's grown to rather dislike BB now that there's
    lacrosse in civilized parts of the world.

    [Yes, Scotland, Wales, Ireland and England all have teams, as does....
    quite a few].

  13. I have been to hundreds of Cleveland Indians games ever since I was a kid
    growing up in Elyria nearby and worked at the old Cleveland Press later. In
    the 1960s and 70s at old Cleveland Municipal Stadium there were so few
    people in the stands every night that you were on a first-name basis with
    everyone by the sixth inning.
    Jacobs Field is one of the finest places I have ever attended a game, and I
    go back to my early childhood in New York at Ebbets Field and the Polo
    Grounds, where you were so close you could talk in a normal voice to the
    players on the field when there was a lull in the action.
    Next best ball park is right here in Toledo, Ohio, where the AAA All-Star
    game was held last night. It is a wonderful, small stadium, rated by
    Newsweek Magazine as the best minor league park in the country. A fantastic
    place to watch the budding stars.
    Definitely, a photog with a decent lens can shoot action from the seats.
    My claim to fame in attending games was the one I never saw. My dad had
    tickets to the fifth game of the 1954 World Series, pitting my beloved
    Indians against the N.Y. Giants. The series, if you recall, was over in four
