That's great advise, thank you. The problem is, I need to find the ball. LOL. Practice, practice, practice.As someone who has shot a lot of sports I'm compelled to offer some advise. Shutter speed should be at least 1/800sec, ideally 1/1000 or faster.
Not sure what lens you are using, if you can shoot at f/4 and bump up the ISO to 6400 to 10,000 that should get it done.
