Peering through the chain link fence, drama unfolds, as in days of old, when ‘pick-up’ games were the neighborhood norm. Whether six or sixteen, boy or girl, all learned the value of play, teamwork and respect for each other – values still being taught during huddles such as the one captured in this photo.
As I watched my grandson I smiled, realizing that though times have changed and technology seems to have overtaken our discretionary time, kids will always crave a game of baseball; fighting off gnats and mosquitos, raindrops and sun rays to slide in the mud and hear the words “batter up!”
Well said. And great photo!
