Lopez is about to miss the ball when he swings.

I love baseball - have played it and watched it for more than 45 years. When I was growing up I sooooo wanted too play baseball (of course for the Cardinals!;-)). I wanted to be a pitcher so bad.

Could you imagine a job or career where you only win, are successful or are correct only 30% of the time and know that you will make more than $5 million USD/year??

it's a real challenge when you are a huge fan of the game and your team to balance watching the game while looking thru the viewfinder.....:-))

Great stop action shot, Bill! Youknow that ball is going at least 80-85 mph and his hands and the bat are way more blurred than the ball. Amazing!!
