Point and Shoot Competition #126 - Sport

We know that Pentax "doesn't do sport", so how about your P&S cameras?

Post your sport photos or sports related photos (pre/post game celebrations, fans on the way to the game etc)

Rules:

1. Always have fun!

2. Cameras:

No cameras with sensors larger than 1" (some exceptions below).
No large format or camera typically requiring a tripod to use.
No interchangeable lens cameras (some exceptions below).
No 35mm (D)SLRs or any camera weighing over 1kg.

Cameras permitted (cameras listed as acceptable here supersede rules above):
Mobile phones, old and new, iPods, tablets, toy cameras.
Fixed-lens 35mm and smaller-format film and digital cameras (Fuji X100 and GR OK).
Interchangeable or fixed-lens 110film SLRs and Pentax Q.

ANY CAMERA BRAND ALLOWED.

3. Entries will close August 31st, 2018 midnight EDT.

4. Maximum image dimensions are 1024x768 (ish) pixels.

5. List camera brand and model with entry for all to see, and exposure data would be nice.

6. No restrictions on when the entries were taken.

7. Contest winner determines the rules, selects theme, sets closing date and judges the next competition.

8. Enter up to three images, however you may change your entries as many times as you like up to the contest closing date/time.

9. Please indicate in some way where the photo was taken (even if 'where i live in the Midwest'), what places you there, etc. (nice idea Dave)

The only sports photos I have are from the time my youngest daughter was playing Softball in the Dutch National league long time ago.

One of the reasons I set this one is because we're not allowed dslr's into most sporting events. So most of my spectator type shots are with the Canon Powershot sx710hs. This allows for the following images to be taken from way back.

Excellent shots everybody!

Does mine count as a sports picture? I took this with Casio Exilim S600.
