Hey, Labor Day weekend I had the chance to see the Reds play in Denver. We only get to do this once a year so its not like I have any experience shooting sports. Below is my shot. My timing was good, but my photo isn't sharp. I can't decide if I needed a faster shutter (it was at 1/640) or if I needed a smaller aperture (f5.6) or if it was something all together different. Take a look. C&C welcome. Thanks. (BTW, this is just for fun family photography) Also if you have any upload size tips I'll take those too.

Thanks for looking!

The photo looks sharp to me. If you're talking about the motion blur of the bat and the ball, then yes, a faster shutter speed would have 'frozen' the action more.

Thanks. I guess I'll try again next year with a 1/1000 shutter speed. I thought I was being cautious with 1/640, I really thought 1/500 would be sufficient. Guess not.
I was however more talking about the blur on the uniform but I think that is also motion blur. Anyway, thanks for the input.
