The Fastball

There are few things harder to do in professional sports than throw or hit a fastball. The ball is traveling over 90 miles an hour. It is also very difficult to photograph especially from the stands with a hand held camera. Professional photographers on the field are much closer and have tripods to steady the camera and even then it is not so easy.

This was taken from the stands at Fenway Park with a 300mm hand held lens at 3200 ISO. It was shot at f8 with a shutter speed of 1/300th of a second. It turned into a single by the Red Sox hitter.
