PROCESS: I went to a high school baseball game last week with one shot in mind... this one. I've seen it done before, but I just wanted to see how hard it was to get... I manually focused on an area of grass between the pitcher and the batter. When I thought the pitcher had thrown the ball in that focused area I snapped a shot... It really wasn't too hard to do but I kept shooting to see if I could get the ball sharp enough to read what was printed on it. In this shot the ball is pretty sharp, but not exactly sharp enough to read the fine print, but I still like the outcome.
