Articles About Perry League t-ball :: Page 5
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.
It was a splendid night. I was in an end-of-season, love-fest state of euphoria.
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.
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!
At 4 p.m. it’s sunny, hot and humid. 98 degrees. Then the skies darken.
The colorful mosaic that is the Perry League continues to startle, astound and delight.
So many wonderful things make up this Perry League. Like Melissa Tinker, who brought her two beautiful, athletic, eager, running, hitting boys, Kian Barker, 5, and Neirin Barker, 2.
It was cold. Very cold. And two minutes after I got there, it started to rain. A misty, drizzly, coat-you-completely, icy rain.
Someone put a hundred dollar bill in our donation jar Friday night. A hundred dollars! It stuns and gratifies us.
The Perry League t-ball season closer on Friday showcased the local tot talent. See a video of the action and a gallery of photos.
