    Thought it's be interesting to see y'all's viewpoints on this one. I'll post the answer tonight.

    I voted he missed strike three. Looks like he was reaching for a low one outside. Cool photo. Not a BB photo you see everyday. Did you run it in your paper?

    it's a neat photo, but I don't see running it unless it's a secondary, since you can't see the kid's face.

    Weekly paper. Doubt I'll run it. Agree with Zeke that I like to run pix with faces. Plus, I got several other usable shots. Took this shot because the coach told me his son was going to throw an 0-2 knuckler and I wanted to see how the batter would react. Thanks for the kudos.

    BTW, Chaz, in an Ed McMahon drunken tone, YOU ARE CORRECT, SIR!

    I'm correct. Damn, there is a first time for everything.
