    I told Aspen Reitsman, 4, to touch her toe to the home base plate, telling her this gave her a run. “A what? You want me to run?” she asked.

  • Adorable new season tees off

    I got to Gaunt Park later than I planned and was delighted: there were 120 people spread out on their blankets, in their chairs, on both diamonds.

  • Sky-high enthusiasm of T-ballers

    Good people come back all the time. Like Janine and Pat Partee, who are back to watch one of their five grandkids, Derrick Partee Fleming, 2.

  • A thrill to see T-ballers fly

    The evening began with a gift. Russell Besson, 13, a T-ball graduate, came up to me with a large, blue-cloth-covered-something-or-other. He told me they’d heard that our current bat-and-ball and hand-sweeper bag was old, falling apart.

    Five-year-old Zander Breza’s grandfather, Michael Breza, said he liked our last article and appreciated what we do with this Perry League program. We thanked him, but he said there was one shortcoming: we had not mentioned Zander.

  • T-ball’s land of love and miracles

    Tanner Miller, in a bright-orange cap with some sort of super hero on it — Batman? — tells me as we line up to race to the outfield for our warm-up exercises, “I’m the oldest one here!”

  • Those remarkable rascals of T-ball

    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)

    Spring is here, with summer right around the corner. And that means it’s time for the Perry League, Yellow Springs’ all-volunteer, 10-week T-ball program for kids 2–9 years of age.
