Crash landing

It seems like have a specialty for capturing moments in sporting events that don't go quite as planned.  This shot is part of a motor-drive sequence of an outfielder's attempt to capture a fly ball to shallow center field.  The player just missed the ball on his diving attempt.  I don't use autofocus on my camera and this was the only frame that was sharp as I pulled the focus following his run for the ball.  Sometimes I just get lucky I guess.
