I am really enjoying this series. I think I may be inspired to try something like this with my daughter's soccer team. We have several parents of kids on the team who are pretty good photographers, but we always seem to focus on getting that great sports action shot instead of the story (and geez, they're only 9). Methinks the story behind the action is at least as interesting, if not more.

You had a lot of shots jump out at me from the last two posts. I swear this isn't supposed to be a photo by photo review, but I just have to call out the ones that jump out at me. So here goes...
I like 17; showing that these kids are very much being kids. A lot of it shows kids growing up, the way the watch the lineup cards, frustrated after a bad at bat...but this shot shows they are still kids.
18...the sun is too dominant. I'd be a spectacular shot to me if the sun didn't take over the entire thing. Not much you can do about the time of day, though.
19. disappeared on me. Did you remove it or is something else hokey?
21. A very cool shot. The composition of it is fantastic. The coach looking on, the slide frozen...wow.
23. Poor kid. ;-)
The team photo series: awesome. Again, it shows the "kids being kids" side of it. They're having so much fun and it's showing. Love it! You know that I like 'liz color' in some instances, but it doesn't work for me on the actual group shot. Personally, I'd probably process it in "regular" color and in B&W; let the parents choose what they want to see. I may get flogged for this one in this forum, but I think that Sepia would be kind of cool for it, too.
Again, thank you for documenting and sharing this series. I love it; tells a different story than what you would normally see in this kind of series.
One overall thought: have you thought about catching a practice or two? Seeing the boys practicing and being coached may add another dimension to this series..this story if you will.

Me too. This was awesome.
And the shot of your son after the strikeout I think you nailed the missing emotional shot you were so looking for.
