As busy as we are this time of year, we always take time to watch the grandkids play ball. At least the ones who live near by. This is one place you'll find Marilyn and I on many nights in June. Well, this, and ball fields all across Northeast Nebraska. Off in the distance you'll see another field where our grandaughter Casey plays some of her softball games.
The top pic is of Colton hitting a ball down the first base side of the field for a single. If you look closely you'll see the ball after he hit it. It's the white blur over the plate.
Colton won't be 14 until late July but he is a big kid. I measured him in his barefeet last week and he stands exactly 6' 1". The bottom pic is of Colton trotting to 2nd base after the next batter was given a walk. He's a good hitter and hasn't failed to put the ball in play yet this season.
Oh yeah, the pictures were taken thru a chain link fence so I couldn't yell while taking the photos. I was afraid I might 'strain' my voice.
