Foul weather into foul balls — rain no damper for Perry League
- Published: August 1, 2016
On Friday, July 29, half a dozen kids (and as many adults) braved the rain and headed out to Gaunt Park for the penultimate night of this year’s Perry League T-ball. Some wearing rain boots, some barefoot, the kids squelched around the field for an hour-and-a-half, batting, running and fielding as usual — when they weren’t playing in the puddles. By the end of the evening, every kid was knee-deep in mud. Click below to watch a brief video of the evening’s fun. Look for a write-up about the soggy evening from Coach Jimmy Chesire on the sports page of the Aug. 4 issue of the News.
The final night of Perry League this season will be Friday, Aug. 5, at Gaunt Park, 6:30–8 p.m., capped by a hot dog roast and potluck dinner. Trophies will be awarded to all kids who show up to play that night. All kids ages 2–9 are welcome to play.
