Out Of The Park

Today was my g-son, Landon's T-Ball season opener.
It's also his very first game and his first at-bat.

SO,, He hits a home run,, with bases loaded,, 😍😎😁🤣😁😎

Now T-Bal does not keep scores and the kids are there just to get a feel for the sport.

Consequently, When I called Cooperstown they told me I had to wait a couple years before he could get on the hall of fame list

Very cool.....great to see youngun's playing BB....I loved the game as a kid in little league.
Props to the adults coaches and personnel that take the time to do this for the kids.

He def had his eye on the ball (pic).....what a great day to enjoy.

His dad has been working with Landon weeknights in the backyard. Amazing what 6yo's can do with a little practice.

Then there are the parents that should not be there. T-ball is 4-6 YO's and this little girl with pig-tails, maybe 4yo gets to the plate and DAD is at the fence "coaching"

To their credit, the coaches did not coach. They just let the kids have fun.

Parents today...helicopter parents should be engaged with a SAM....

I was referring to the guys/gals that give their precious time to enabling kids in worthwhile activity...they are great Americans.

Great mechanics & nice photo sequence.


My favorite is actually the 3rd frame. Everyone else standing there, watching the ball disappear. That's the money shot for what a HR looks like to everyone else, lol.
