As a sports photographer I am always looking for the peak action moments. I always have to be ready to snap at a moments notice. In baseball, the action is few and far between. There are a couple of pitches, and then smack! Something happens and the players are racing. The players are all over the field and you must know where the play is going to happen. Timing is everything. You have to be right on time, or the action will pass you by faster than you can blink.
