What do baseball photographers in the MLB use? One of my friend's uncle works for the local MLB team and my fraternity brother is going to ask his uncle is I could shadow him for a game or two. I know they use long glass but not sure. I only have two lens to my name so I was just wondering. I shoot for my colleges baseball team but I get to be close to the base line. I know the MLB baseline is at least 40yards from the fence and MLB photographers don't get to move around. So I was just wondering what kind of glass they use.
