What's the call?

"UVU's Jason Zundel (14) looks to the umpire for the call as he is tagged by BYU catcher Bryce Ayoso (11) during the bottom of the first-inning at Brent Brown Ballpark on the campus of UVU, Tuesday, May 4, 2010. Zundel was called safe on the play, giving the Wolverines an early, 1-0, lead. However, BYU overcame an 8-4 deficit to top the Wolverines, 14-10. The loss ended the Wolverines (25-15) school record 11-game winning streak."

Have to be honest - I hate shooting baseball.

I grew up playing lacrosse, which was always pitted against baseball as being the non-wimp sport.

But of recent I've grown to enjoy the game. That is, with proper equipment. In equipment I mean an iPod with good tunes.

I am not one to block out ambient noise. I feel like I am missing something that could clue me into a moment while on assignment.

Yet to stay excited for baseball I have to listen to good music, and change up my shooting style.

In this case, I decided to break away from full-frame shooting and hit up work's Canon 1D Mark II, a 400mm with a 1.4x converter added - 728mm of goodness.

As for music, I went with a combination of Band of Horses and my good friend Drew's mash-up mix, otherwise known as, twoKittenschocolateKisses.

The trifecta of two bands and a fresh perspective proved to be what I needed to get through the first five innings or so before deadline.
