  • To honor Coach Jimmy, play ball!

    As they were having their picture taken on the bleachers “for Coach Jimmy”, the closing crowd of about 30 children spontaneously cheered, over and over, “PER-RY LEAGUE, PER-RY LEAGUE, PER-RY LEAGUE!”

  • Guest Blog: Win One for Coach Jimmy!

    As soon as the news was out on what had happened a number of us had two immediate responses: “Please let this terrific human being be okay,” and “T-ball must go on. Coach Jimmy will only worry about his kids if we don’t.”

  • Another Perry League lovefest

    We got access to the Village’s riding law mower. And, now get this — this is the kind of phenomenal and fantastic thing that happens at t-ball all the time — after spending several hours getting that old relic of a mower to work, Matt spent a couple more hours grating that cement-like ball diamond.

  • Kindness and capers at t-ball

    “Okay, everyone on your hands and knees!” I say. “I know what we’re going to do!” Caroline Tucker sings out enthusiastically. “What?” I ask. “Everyone crawl around two other human beings!” Caroline says.

    With over 40 kids at tball on Friday, Jimmy Chesire did his best to split the kids onto 2 ball diamonds. It didn’t really work, most kids preferred Jimmy’s diamond, but everyone still had fun!

  • What an opening night at t-ball!

    Oh, what a night! Lily Rainey, 9, Kian Rainey, 4, and Veda Rainey, 2, Amy Boblitt and Brian Rainey’s kids, are there when I show up, ready and raring to go.

  • T-ball finale­— Opening our hearts to children

    Kian Rainey, age 3, had a great time at Gaunt Park Friday night. Most of the time he ran around with several baseballs in his hands. Above, Rainey’s successful turn at bat led to a mad scramble towards home plate by at least three decidedly shortstops. (photo by Suzanne Ehalt)

    It was a splendid night. I was in an end-of-season, love-fest state of euphoria.

  • T-ball winds down this Friday

    At the beginning of the evening, Edwin Harrah, 2, is running with us from right field, where we do our warm-up exercises, back onto the diamond. Well, not running exactly. Edwin’s 2. He’s a toddler. And toddlers toddle.

  • Talk trumps t-ball in the heat

    It’s hot, hot, hot, 100 degrees at t-ball time. And still a couple dozen children and their remarkable parents and grandparents and families show up to play!

  • No tomatoes in baseball

    At 4 p.m. it’s sunny, hot and humid. 98 degrees. Then the skies darken.
