— The most im­por­tant part of hit­ting a base­ball is keep­ing your eye on the ball when you’re at the plate. A hit­ter has to fol­low the ball un­til it hits the bat. Like­wise for catch­ers and um­pires. They have to en­sure they pay at­ten­tion to the flight of the nineinch ball in or­der to do their jobs. With the ball in mid­flight, mos­quito di­vi­sion hit­ter Colby Bar­rett (left) watches the ball com­ing in, while catcher Dy­lan Whelan and um­pire Noah Wil­son fix­ate on the fly­ing ob­ject dur­ing ac­tion at the ball­field in Spa­niard’s Bay on July 15.
