I have been going to baseball games my entire life. From t-ball to little league to even all the way up to major league baseball I think that I enjoy watching the kids as they play at the Homefront T-ball league the best. The reason is to see the smiles that are on the kid’s faces. I love the fact that these kids are having fun. They are playing for the simple fact of being on a team, being outside, and being a “baseball player.” I don’t recall anybody asking who won, what the score was, or who the best player was that night. The smiles coming from these kids is something that I love getting to see because too many times surrounding baseball I see kids (and parents) that forget why they are out there.
The Homefront Children’s Foundation once again had a very successful season for the second year in a row at UCT park in Kokomo with approximately 50 participants. The league was started last year by Jennie Ousley in hopes of getting a few players to be able to participate in a t-ball league for special needs children and the response from last year was such a positive one that there were many returning players again this year. It was great seeing the familiar faces out on the field and see how much they had grown in a year.
A special thanks to all the volunteers and sponsors for their time and effort to make this year’s league a success. Here are a few of the pictures from the league and of course the smiles…
