  • The tiny warriors of t-ball

    It was another scorcher. Ninty-three degrees at 6:30 p.m. (though the humidity was only 49 percent, which helped some). Five kids got us started — we had 25 on the diamond before the rains sent us home early, and for the third time this season. Dane Beal, 5, is for me one of the keenest […]

  • Trying to blow softer at t-ball

    Mia Campbell was back. And this time with the whole Campbell entourage. Tristan, who will be 13 in August, a big brother so handsome that if I were a 13-year-old girl I’d ask him to marry me. Raven, he’ll be 11 on July 29, who is impressed with the size of his clan: “Five people […]

  • The poetry of Perry League

    It was steaming, the temperature in the mid-nineties, the humidity near 100 percent last Friday night, July 22. Six brave children showed up: Tommy Moore, 3, a stalwart, not missing a night this whole season.

    Evan Galarza, age 4, shines his love beacon up at me and says, “I want to be on the field with you.” I am thrilled to be chosen by such a dream child.

  • Thunder, lightning stymies t-ball

    There were sprinkles of rain dotting my windshield as I drove up to Gaunt Park last Friday night, June 10, for our second evening of t-ball. Parents and kids gathered ‘round as we unloaded our trunks and we wondered together, “Should we play?”
