Great action shot that shows human emotion.
Another great action shot, Wils.
Love your moments in time, Wilson...
Captures the effort well.

Lovely action. Are you kidding about the f:1,8? Crisp and focus right on spot. As you also are standing right on spot for this great shot. Well done. Kind regards.
Looking forward to seeing some of these guys with Wisconsin next year. Great shot Wilson.

Another nice one!:)
I am not really a sport fan, but this shot struck me, the expression on the player's face: it says a lot.
Thank you all for your comments, HOWARD: Glad you see the emotion part, Howard. JOHN: There will be a few heading your way, John! LINDA: Thanks, Linda. ALESSIA: Grazie. JAYME: Thank you. COLIN: Appreciate it. PAULA: Thanks for your perspective, Paula. JAN: Indeed it was f1.8 hand-held as I needed all the light I can get when the game passed 21:00 hour. KEN: Thanks, Doc. Wilson ^_^
Susan, No offense taken at all. Thanks for chiming in and give your honest opinion. I definitely agree with you that a ball and #37 face would be ideal. This is nothing more than a part of a photolog of my shooting that team. Sportsshooter, you mean this? Anyway, how nice it is to hear from a high profile photog like yourself. I invite you to view my other images at your leisure. ^_^
View from 1st As a long time 1st base coach. This is real as it gets for anyone who has never been on the field up close. color is good. You can see its a night game. A good learning photo for the young baseball payers. I just saw this-Susan Ragan, October 18, 2007; 06:26 P.M. SPORT SHOOTING Just FYI, this picture would not be accepted by Associated Press, UPI, Reuters or any big paper because the ball is not in the picture and the first baseman's face is not either. We were always told, "No boring first base shots," by our editors.Take a look at Sportsshooter.com and check out the sports pictures from the pros. Then, when you know what sports editors want, you can get a job. I'm not trying to be a jerk, just honest about how most people want to see sports published. ------- I am very sorry my dear you don't know what you are talking about. This would be printed in any paper, get real my dear this is a good shot. Have you ever been this close to the action before?. I am sorry my dear but you are wrong. What if the runner is the main reason for the shoot? and this first baseman face needs to be in the photo? What? If this first baseman has his head turned to you. 1- He will get hit by the ball thrown around 90 at him. 2- The runner will go the 3rd from the throw. 3 He would be benched from the game . So you see my dear this is a good shot after all
Uniform redo What's with the camo shirt and ... what's that thing on his helmet? Good Grief! Good shot though.

Mr Brown, I suggest you stick to coaching first base and Ms Regan will stick to commenting and shooting sports photography. By the way she's not your "DEAR". Four "My Dears" you are a brave man. For 23 plus years I was an Associated Press Photos editor. I can speak from experience of looking for hours and hours of many a roll of baseball film that this photo, for what we needed it for, would not have made the first cut. Now if the player got killed sliding into the base. I might use it. Nice photo, WHERES THE ----ing BALL!!! I never had to tell our AP photogs about boring 1st base photos. Some stringers but only once. I had a way with words. And one more point. Susan has been this close, with out the benefit of a 180 mm lens. She got so close a few years ago she was hospitalized and still has pain from her "Up Close" encounter with an NFL running back during a Super Bowl. I think she is still used in the NFL Hi-lites show. So she is famous and she never coached Firstbase. So Mr Brown stick to coaching and leave the sports photography to folks like Susie R.

..whoa..didn't know it can get this nasty. Why the hostility? Again, this is just a keepsake snapshot of a team I shot couple years ago and I wasn't going to submit it to papers or wire services. BTW, it was shot with an 85mm lens at a night game, not 180mm.
"Back to First" One More Time. AquaSox left fielder Alex Gary (#33) jumps back to first base on a pick-off move from Volcanoes reliever Kellen Ludwig to first baseman Chris Stanton (#37.) Gary was caught stolen at second base the next play. Frogs beat Salem- Kaiser 12-8.
