Even at 1/30th of a second shutter speed you still get the sense of speed of a baseball player fouling off the pitch. The blur of the batter and the ball shooting off to his right. No, it didn’t hit the catcher in the mask. It just looks that way. Actually, the ball went out of the park, but foul.
I was trying to get the moment of contact, but of all the shots I took, this was the closest I got.
Shot at a San Jose Giants vs. Rancho Cucamonga Quakes game. The Giants won 9 – 7. Go Giants!
