MiLB San Antonio Missions vs Springfield Cardinals

Had the opportunity to shoot some Minor League Baseball at San Antonio's Wolff Stadium.  The San Antonio Missions hosted the Springfield Cardinals on July 9th, with James Needy pitching for the Missions and getting the win at 2-0 in the first game of this home session.

Tried something a bit different using a Nikon 600mm/f4 mostly from the fence over center field.  Shooting into the sun with a 7PM start made for some contrast issues, but it also provided some action shots with a different point-of-view, i.e., batters and second base plays almost straight on.

Still a long reach so having to crop more than I prefer.  Might try a 1.4x converter at a Saturday day game to get a bit more reach.

Always looking for something different..
