I was able to capture the rare and elusive bat on ball a few times this year. This one is my favorite. This young lady is the clean up batter and no matter what game her bat always finds the ball. ISO 400, f 2.8, 1/4000 Nikon d4s, 70-200 2.8

I shot my sons baseball for years and this was always a difficult shot to get although some sound like they find it easy.

Took me a VERY long time to get any sort of inconsistency ( Other than complete and utter misses) and I often found my timing mark to be watching the pitcher and firing as soon as the ball appeared to leave his hand.

Don't know if it was the camera's I was using then but I'd learn more towards my slow reflexes although I never had much trouble with the timing on anything else I shot in sports.

One little trick I picked up on was a bit lower shutter speed. Blurred the bat and ball while keeping the batter sharp giving the impression of speed and opened the window of timing for the bat and ball to connect.
