Not sure how many Steelers fans are here, but they practice about 20 min from where I live so I went to watch the other day. I ran into somebody I knew that was going to school at St. Vincent college where they practice, and they ended up getting me a pass to go on the field. This was also my first real chance to try my new D80 and 18-200VR lens. Anyway, here are some of my shots.

I like number 4 the best... nice tight crop and sharp image. When shooting sports, always shoot very tight, as it will be a lot easier to track and stay in focus. You should also crank your shutter speed up higher than you had it... 1/320 may be sufficient for little league (and probably not), but for pros you need to be up at around 1/1000. Also, lowering your aperture will help blur the background more when isolating the action. Keep the aperture high for larger groups like number 3 if you want multiple players in focus, but for 1 or 2 players, I'd try to shoot it wide open.
