June 19th Ballgame

I've been so busy that I'm late in getting these posted but I figured I better get them up now because there's more games on Monday. Her PK appears to be having a problem with her britches during warm up. I called her out when they went to their bench so I could adjust her belt.
Her first position was catcher. They had her standing way back from the plate this game.
Batter UP! HIT!
Run!!! Unfortunately, she hit the ball straight to first and she was out.
Hamming for the camera again. Playing outfield.
Up to bat again.
This time she makes it to first base, barely, but safe.
On the way to home plate...
It's a run!
Now she's playing first. Get the ball, PK!
Up to bat, again.
Safe at first!
...on to second...
...run to third...
...touch the base, PK!
On to home and another run!
Game over... Good game for all!
This beautiful little guy had perched on the fence to watch the warm up but flew away before the game started. I don't recall seeing Baltimore Orioles around her up until a few years ago. Maybe it's just that we're getting trees big enough on our side of town now.
They're STILL throwing the paper on the drive!!!! Fortunately it hadn't rained enough to fill up the drive this day.

Looks like a good game was played. That bird is gorgeous. I'm sorry you're still having trouble with your paper being thrown in the water. Have a great day.

At this age the game can look more like a circus at times. On the other team they had one girl that was determined to go after every ball that was hit, no matter where. It can be quite entertaining. Thanks for visiting and leaving a comment.

What great shots you got of running the bases and batting! Kids just love doing this...and parents love to watch. One of my favorite things to do on a summer night is watch these kids play as they get so pumped for any achievement...great to watch. The oriole is stunning!

Ahh, brings back great memories of my girls playing in their tee ball leagues, wish I would have taken more pics. Love the bird shot.

Looks like a fun ballgame! That bird is gorgeous. I have only seen them on our farm a couple of times but they sure are pretty! Just wanted to say hello to a fellow Kansas resident!

Alice, Bob & Jennifer - PK is really enjoying her T-ball. I used to think this version of "baseball" was dumb but I think the little ones benefit from it since the "rules" really don't make sense to them anyway. It saves everyone frustration playing with no winners or losers. When someone runs the wrong way or EVERYONE goes for the ball, it's not a big deal. Some gentle instruction and back to the game.

And WELCOME Jennifer! Always happy to meet a fellow Kansan.
