She can take pictures of the batter, pitcher, catcher and players sliding into home all in that area. Just have fun with it. There are enough innings in the game to get the hang of what is happenning.
Don't worry about Eddie Christellf, I got the idea he was just being funny and to me FUN is everything. I also don't know what to expect on the day so I am taking it all in but leaving myself open to all eventualities. I Hope that Sally and I are still on talking terms on Saturdays, but that isn't Garranteed, Women!!!!!

Ron, I can't tell from the pictures but is the fence taller than you all around the field? I've brought a step-ladder before to stand on and was able to put the camera right above the top of fence using a monopod, but still had to watch for the balls not to get hit.

This gtound did but this was a pitch just down the road Christellf, I have never been to the ground where they will be playing and I can't see myself perched on a ladder for 9 innings???

Chiming in a bit late here, but the 4 classic baseball shots are:

Pitcher in the middle of a throw
Runner sliding into a base (preferably home)
Batter smacking the ball (preferably a home run)
Outfielder making a great catch

A lot will depend on your lenses and pure luck. Shoot a bunch.

Ron, you and Eddie just crack me up with the replies to each other. I was waiting for you to post some of your results. Looks like you had nice weather for the game. Was the picture shot through the fence?

Hey Ron,

That photo is a good one. Nice going.

I was quite surprised to see one mis-speeelled word in your sentence above. I wooda thought you knew the correct speeeeling of that particular word!

I will let you find it!!
