Not sure what I am seeing here - has the bat split in two? That must be quite rare. Wel captured. Viv

I don't think it's incredibly rare, Viv. Those guys are brutes, and the ball is hard and flies through the air fast. There's a lot of energy involved.

Great shot, Tim.

It used to be rare. Now that the players are getting increasingly stronger all the time, it happens more often. Tim, your timing was perfect. The focus is spot on in spite of the backstop netting. I love that piece of bat sailing through the air. Well done! Thumbs Up!

Thanks for the comments everyone! Jan, if there was a cricket league anywhere even close to my school, I would be shooting every match Smile

You can see how little I know of the game - never heard of baseball bats splitting!! But an excellently timed capture. Viv
