That’s an absolutely amazing photo of Buster’s bat breaking. It was a split second in time and that’s a flawless picture. I love how you can see the muscles in both his forearms, which shows you just how hard he hit that ball. It’s also pretty cool that you can see the back of the stadium reflected in his helmet. And mostly…it’s Buster. Playing in the season opener. Great picture!
