Redditor and professional photographer jib661 posted this incredible picture to Reddit today. By focusing on the ground between the pitcher and the batter, he took continuous shots of the sequence until he got a few where the ball was in focus.

Some additional information about the shot below:

“I prefocused between the pitcher/catcher, and shot on continous (out of about 800 frames, i had 3 in focus). It was shot with a Canon 300mm 2.8 on a 1D MKII. The lens was about 1.5 inches from the fence.” – jib661 on Reddit

You can find a higher resolution image available here, and if you’re interested, he also uploaded a gallery of about 30 frames from the sequence.
