Tuned into the first game of the World Series today, and tried to get some sketches of the players in action. Turns out these guys move too fast even for digital HD, but I got in some motion studies of a player at bat (Nori Aoki, if it matters), which was a lot more interesting than I’d have thought. For a pitcher to throw a 90mph+ fastball (or for a batter to swing at one) involves a coordination of movement I would probably neither have noticed nor appreciated if I hadn’t stopped to sketch it.
Deeply fascinating stuff.
