We signed Ty up this season for a great program that helps support the local high school baseball team. They pair the players up with a few kids and it allows them to learn about each other and the younger players get to participate in some on field activities at home games. According to the coach, some of the current high school players were once Tiger cubs themselves.
Last night we went to our first game for the Stony Point Tigers and Ty wore his special shirt that gets him into the games and recognizes his status. Our player is Matt, a junior, who wears #17. He stood with Ty and the other kids along the 3rd base line while the national anthem played before the game. He told Matt all about his t-ball team and how well he has been playing this season.
Ty then joined me back in the stands. We stayed for a few innings and munched on hot dogs on a nice warm Texas spring evening.
