    Spring is here and the distinctive sounds of kids, teens and young adults playing ball at Gaunt Park — the cracks of bats connecting with hard balls and soft balls, the shouts of joy, the roars of approval, the moans of dismay as another runner crosses the plate — fill the air.

  • The little and big miracles of T-ball

    The Perry League T-ball gang has two weeks left of play this summer — this Friday, July 31 at 6:30 p.m. and Friday, Aug. 7, the annual grande finale event, both at Gaunt Park. Shown here at a recent game are Coach Jimmy and Corbin Hyatt. (Photo by Suzanne Szempruch)

  • Yellow Springs Perry League t-ball — We can all do it, if we try

    “Look what I can do!” says Dorothy Paddison, 7. This creative, fun-loving girl is reversing the instructions, lifting her toes up in the air, all the way to her nose, ‘til she is wobbling around. The inevitable happens; she falls backwards.

  • T-ball: all business, all fun
