Legion Baseball: Birches @ East Stroudsburg

Today’s Legion baseball game featured the Birches at East Stroudsburg. The game was played on the East Stroudsburg University field. East Stroudsburg won 7-2. There was a great photo I captured at first base where a base runner was sliding headfirst back to the bag. The dust is flying, the first baseman is applying the tag, and the runner’s hand is just about to touch the bag. I think it is a really cool shot. What do you think?

This was the second Legion game I photographed in the new season. Now that the high school season is over, these games are in full swing. I posted all the photos from these past two games on my website and you can view all the photos of the games here: http://bobshankphotography.com/Legion%202013.html

There is something special about the challenge of capturing the action at a baseball game. The action is quick and sometimes elusive. You always have to be ready for anything! Planning ahead, figuring out which base the ball might be thrown to, and staying constantly alert are key elements for sports photography. I am getting better and building a stronger portfolio these days. I just need to keep my head in the game and keep trying harder and harder!
