I will not be submitting, solely because I have been unable to shoot.
However, I am looking forward to viewing the entries.

S'OK. "Abstract" is represented by one of mine, but I don't do it as
well as you do. Thought I'd give it a shot, though.

Thanks for the comment. I am glad you are expanding from primarily
people. I would be surprised if the quality of your abstract wasn't at
least as good as your people shots.

Nice memory shots.

We will probably never have grandchildren. So we have to settle for a
granddog, who makes commercials.
The Golden is my daughter's.

There is no pitcher in Rookie Babe Ruth Baseball. The ball is pitched
by a machine so that all pitches are roughly in the strike zone and
roughly the same speed. The "roughly" is because the machine is
spring-loaded and not a precision device.

Here it is in this photo with my other grandson playing "pitcher".
That position is there as a fielder, but not to pitch. The guy in the
red hat operates the machine and drops his hand just before he
releases the ball. He is also the umpire as far as calling runners
safe or out.

Since this is the kid's first year in baseball, the object is to teach
them basic batting and fielding skills. They'd never get hits if one
of them actually pitched. They don't have that much control at 6 to 8
years-old.

There are other rules in this league like no base stealing, seven runs
per inning max, everyone bats even if there are more than nine on the
team, and one extra fielder.

Singles turn in doubles, triples, and home runs because there are a
lot of wild throws and missed catches. As the season progresses, the
kids get better.
