Anyone can take a photo, but these rise above the mere snapshot and reach the sublime. It’s the human story that each of these photos tell that makes them so compelling.

As an amateur baseball historian, look particularly at the older baseball photography, particularly the black and white ones. That was the era that allowed press photographers to stand in foul territory while the game was being played, fairly close to the action. They would never allow this these days. You will notice the perspective is field level. They just can’t photography action shots like that anymore, even with telephoto lenses, because they don’t allow press on the field during the game. (They’d get in the way of the TV cameras).
