    I can't see the wickets. They must've knocked 'em over.
     
  6. It's certainly a green pitch.

    I guess the question is why is he running back to first base?

    The weird thing is everyone seems to be in an after-play mode (pitcher off the mound, runner going back to first base, everyone is sort of relaxed in their places) - except the batter who seems ready to swing and the catcher ready to catch.

    Once we got the jokesters out of the way, Sprinke saw something amiss. SMaturin ventured a reasonable guess and Hyubie is starting to get to the heart of the matter.

    The player returning to first base is actually the batter that we see at home plate awaiting the pitch.

    Huh?

    I took my camera with the 45-200 lens hoping to get some decent shots zoomed in. Being too cheap to buy the good seats I soon realized that I was too far away to get any decent shots even at the 200 end. I also realized that the 45 end was not wide enough to capture the whole field. So I decided to try a panorama and started snapping some overlapping shots starting at home plate (as the pitch was on the way)....as I was lining up the other shots, the ball had clearly been hit and the batter become the base runner. I'm not sure if it was a long fly out and he's returning to the dugout after rounding first or just heading back to first after being held to a single.
