June 19, 2016, Victoria, BC - Carnarvon Rockies batter Chase Kittleson watches the ball after a big hit during the Rockies 2016 GVBA Mosquito Championship game against the Peninsula Royals at Lambrick Park in Victoria. Carnarvon would cruise to an 13-4 victory.
WHY I CHOSE THIS PHOTO: At the 9 and 10 year old age group in minor baseball, when a kid makes solid contact on a pitch (rare) they almost always have a look of shock on their face for a brief moment before heading to first base. I have been trying to capture that look for a number of years now and I think on this shot, I finally succeeded! Technically, I also like the lighting and the soft focus of the fans in the background that really make the batter standout.
