NICE Framing and angle!!!!! I do alot of baseball games, but unfortunately , the angles I get aren't directly behind homeplate, they are more to the rt. of the ump :( So I'm kinda jealous you got this angle! :) #9841873

Scott A. McDaniel December 01, 2011

Thanks Jillian. I shoot baseball professionally and I try this shot every game... I have gotten it twice. The ump almost never leaves me enough room. #9841906
