I've always wanted a shot of a foul ball being caught in the stands and all the expressions that would be on the people's faces. Here is the shot. The ball is about 1/2 an inch from the guys hand, just in front of the orange shirted guy, right before he caught it. . I don't expect to ever beat this one.
#14 JD Martinez, left fielder for the Houston Astros hitting a home run against Cleveland in Houston's Minute Maid Park.
The ball coming right off the bat of #14 JD Martinez, the left fielder for the Houston Astros against Cleveland a couple of weeks ago.
This is what a home run looks like coming off the bat of J.D. Martinez, #14, left fielder for the Astros at the game Saturday afternoon, June the 23rd. Astros won, 8-1. It was a great game to say the least.
This is a home run hit by Jordan Schafer, #1, the center fielder for the Astros. You can see the ball just as it leaves the bat. It was hit over the left field wall.
A casual out made by the first baseman for the Astros.
Another easy out for the Astros.
He's got his eyes closed. Watch the ball all the way to the glove.
Notice the ball is just about 1/2 an inch from hitting the glove. It's just not quite there yet. When it hits the glove, it snaps back and instantly closes to hold the ball.
A four-ball sequence shot showing the track of the ball to first base.
Here is a composite shot of 6 pictures showing the sequence of the third baseman for Cleveland throwing the Astros runner out at first. This ball track was more on line with what you would expect than some of the others that I got. Too bad it was an out but the final score was 8 to1 with the Astros winning.
Here is a great hit.
I believe this one was a call "strike" don't you?
