Not only is it fuzzy/blurry, but there is nothing going on here. You can't take a good shot in this situation unless you have a really good camera and a lot of zoom.

Photo feels too dark with not enough contrast.

need to be brighter and less grainy, for me

The guy warming up, the batter, and the first base coach make a triangle...good comp.

Giving this an 8 ...might bump higher after finished voting on the rest. Don't know what makes this such a nice photo. Good use of rule of 3rds? Or Triangles? Maybe you could tell me. (Sorry, still learning about all that stuff). Whatever - there's something very appealing about this photograph. Perhaps it's the colours and shapes in it - and yes, it still has team sport action as its theme - but seems to be very artistically captured within that theme.
<edited>........Kept the score of 8 on it. Just wondering if the image might look even better with some sort of brighter lighting - in some way?

This photo was just too far away for this challenge. It is obviously a team sport but I can't see any action.

I like the colors and the composition.

Meets the challenge, but seems a bit too "snapshot-ish" for me. There's no way to see the "action" that the challenge implies.

Let's Go Mets! Gotta Believe! These last few weeks have been upsetting though...Anyways I like the photo...if you qould have placed the circle on the bottom left intersection according to the ROT, it would have been stronger compositionally. Good shot from the mezzanine green it looks like.

it would be better if you have given a close up view than a bird's eye view....

It's just so far away, and the focus could be better. Would make a real nice shot otherwise.

Excellent angle and composition. At that distance you're not going to get a tight shot, so you did well to work with what you had and come out with a nice shot. One thing - it's very dark. Using auto-levels or contrast should bump up the colours nicely producing a more vibrant shot. Good effort.

Very monochromatic feel to this photo. Too bad I'm not an avid Mets fan otherwise I would give you extra points.
