Grand ol' game!


My little slugger!


Yellow uniforms this time around, folks. Doesn't she look cute?

You should see her out on the field, running after every loose ball. When the ball goes past her or runs through her legs, she can't always hold back the tears. I'll stand there looking perplexed, hands on my hips, doing my best Tom Hanks impersonation, "Are you crying?" disbelieving, shaking my head indignantly, "There's no crying in baseball..." looking around at the other faces for support, "There's no crying in baseball!!!" She'll either break into a smile or run over to me and hug my leg, desperate for a little sympathy.

It's gonna be a long, wonderful season!

Fabulous. She looks just fabulous. And it sounds like you're having a lot of fun, too.

Makre sure you teach them the Bull Durham lines, too. "I just want to help the team". Critical, Mick.

All four of my daughters played either T-Ball or softball, in various levels of seriousness. Two were on the same team for a couple of years. They played first base and catcher, and worked wonderfully well together on the field. Too bad it didn't last past the game time...next morning before school it was back to the murder and mayhem of five women and one bathroom. Much luck to your daughter, enjoy these years, my friend.
