Monday afternoon, I covered the East Hampton-Westbrook game. I was wearing my new knee pads and it felt great! I was waiting for some action on the bases, so I had my 300mm lens set on manual focus on second base. Then it happened, a play at home, there was barely enough time to react, I quickly focused the lens and shot the play. All I knew was the runner was coming in head first and as usual, I didn't hear the call. I took a quick look at the picture and thought #26 was safe. I turned to the Westbrook coach and asked the play at home was called safe or out. The coach was a bit hesitant and jokingly said, "I'll let you know after the game." I told him I really needed to know and that this photo would probably be my main art. He said the ump called the runner out.
Benjamin "Benja" Fortin... was he safe or was he out?
He looks safe to me...what do you think? Leave your thoughts on this play.
