Jodi, nice shot! Love the depth of field, the expression you captured, and the title. The funny part is by kneeling on the ground his shin guards are irrelevant, and his thighs are unprotected. Hope it only stung a little bit :D #1382433

Jodi, Congrats on your finalist selection. Good luck. #9561637

Congrats Jodi, on the recognition of your excellent shot! #9564216

Thanks to Steve, Bill, and Linda for the congrats. This young man plays in a league where the coach pitches with a soft baseball, so the actual chance he would hurt himself by getting hit was quite minimal. #9564580
