Rodger,

 

Were you on the field for these?  The outfield stands would seem to put you too far away for 400 mm.

Re: Some softball photos from senior night

Ed,

 

The batters were shot from just outside the fence around the outfield, softball fields aren't as deep as baseball so a 400mm does pretty well. The batters were cropped on average from around 20% of the total 1DX III sensor area. 

 

I could have used a 1.4X with the 400 but the resulting 560mm leaves a big gap between it and the 70-200 on the second body so I have found that the bare 400 works pretty well for both softball and baseball at the high school level.
