You caught a great moment!

One thing you might want to watch for is all the lines that pop up at a baseball field. They can have a big impact on the image. For this one, I might have turned a bit one way or the other so that the baseline coming from third didn't split the image vertically.

For what you have here, I'd probably crop out some of the blue sky. There isn't much of a buffer around the other three sides, but a lot of "not much" up at the top.

nice pic.. I always try to get the players face, name or number in a sports pic, but with the twisting of a hitter it is hard. pretty nice exposure and moment though.

Nice photo Justin. It's good and sharp, with nice color saturation. One thing I would suggest, is shooting something like this in a landscape format, so I can see more of the field, and less sky.
