After just completing such a run of basketball images from the tournaments I thought that softball would be easy to transition into. Not really. Where as basketball is pretty non-stop with action happening on a rapid basis, baseball and softball are more mental. There is a lot of down time where you lose focus (no pun intended).
The two images below are from the same play. The first is the best peak action for the players, while the second image is more interesting compositionally - it has a diagonal of movement in the image that adds tension, and then Sam Gomez has some energy to his umpiring as he calls the runner out.
