Shadow Ball

When you photograph baseball games you sometimes need to get creative to help pass the time while waiting for something to happen. So I thought I'd try to shoot the Yankees' Curtis Granderson's shadow as he tried to hit the ball. I succeeded in getting the bat and the ball in the perfect spot. I'm not using a motor-drive to fire off 8 to 10 shots a second ... I have one chance to get the shot. So - I lucked out here. And is it me or is Granderson wearing mismatched socks?

Awesome shot!

I wonder if the sun is just hitting each sock at a different angle?
