I paid a visit to Alma on Tuesday to watch great nephew Anders play baseball and to stay overnight. It was an exciting game with the win for Anders' team coming with a hit by his best pal, Wil. I got a few photos of Anders even though the rain started partway through the game and by the end of the game I was happy to get my camera stored inside the car to keep it dry.
|A good stretch and catch to put the batter out.|
|Eye on the ball|
|Hustling to first base after a hit.|
|2 handed fielding.|
|Game face on, big chaw of bubble gum in his cheek.|
|Trotting to first after a nice smack!|
It was a fun game, we stayed and watched the next two games as well.
Anders kept busy as the ball shagger for all out of bounds foul balls.
It rained through both games and we were went and muddy by the time we left the field.
I stayed overnight at Lora & Anders' house. They are renting a cute bungalow on the hill in Alma with a view of the river and a plentiful supply of lightning bugs!
It was good to have some time to visit and see their new digs.
I'm looking forward to the next game!
The Alma kids are good players on defense and they can hit the ball.
If they hang together, they are going to have some fun!
