  • Perry League: 2017 T-ball season ends in song

    More than 50 kids and 150 adults celebrated another summer of Perry League T-ball at last Friday night’s end-of-summer potluck. The evening included fence-climbing and anthem-singing, plus the usual T-ball antics and fun. Shown above are Maddie McGuire and Zander Breza with Coach Jimmy Chesire. (Sbmitted photo)

    Thank you, all you children, all you kids, all you rapscallions, who come play with us. We are grateful to you and hope to see you all here, there, everywhere, as we plan to do this all over again next summer.

  • Yucky balls and divine mud

    It’s been an unusually wet month. WHIOTV7 weather says we’ve had 4.04 inches of rain this month and that the normal amount of rain in July is 2.91 inches. “This isn’t T-ball,” Erin Fink exclaimed. “It’s mud ball!”

  • A muddlicious time at T-ball

    I love the mud balls and mud puddles. In fact, I yearn for the days before the Village put in drainage pipes, which drain the field after a good rain, forever eliminating the great six-foot-diameter, 28 square feet of water puddles of yesteryear.

  • Home run

    Last Friday, longtime Perry League T-ball coach Jimmy Chesire, center, gave the signal that started a herd of t-ballers stampeding towards the light pole to do stretches and warm-ups for the final “1,000 strikes” of the summer at last year's final night of T-ball. (Photo by Isaac Delamatre)

  • Slipping and sliding at T-ball

    Rain and mud couldn’t put a stop to Perry League last Friday, July 29. Seven kids and six adults showed up for a rousing, muddy and wet t-ball time. Shown above are, left, Morgan Gama-Lobo, Marina Gama-Lobo (rear) and Lucy Shows-Fife. (Photo by Lauren Shows)

    It was raining steadily, heavily, when I got to Gaunt Park at 6:20 p.m. The park was empty. Just me and the steady rain. Then around 6:30 p.m., two cars pulled into the parking lot.

  • The mysterious ways of T-ball

    Julia Camard, 2, came to the tee and picked up the ball, taking it off the tee, and reached for the one I held in my right hand. “Okay,” I said, and switched balls with her.

  • Birthday madness at T-ball

    What is truly remarkable about this T-ball program? It is the kids themselves.

  • International night at t-ball

    They’re considerate, these T-ball kids. Cruz Drew, 6, took me aside around 7:30 p.m. to explain to me he was sorry.

  • Love! Love! Love! at T-ball

    It was another wonderful night at T-ball.

  • T-ball’s rascals, scamps and scalliwags

    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.
