Here Ty, Have a Trophy or Two

What an amazing baseball season for our little rookie, Ty. His 6U team went completely undefeated throughout the entire regular season, and both tournaments. These photos represent trophies #2 and #3 for just this season. The one on the left is for winning the regular season title. The one on the right is from the end of season tournament.

Many of his teammates will play on this summer as all-stars and with any luck, Ty will join them again in the fall for what may become a dynasty in the making for Round Rock youth baseball.

More photos from the season and the tournaments are on my flickr page here.

Future Hall of Famers Ball?

Ty holds up a ball signed by members of the Stony Point High School baseball team. To celebrate the end of the season and the kids who were part of the Tiger Cubs, the team held a thank you pizza party at the baseball stadium. 

Ty got a chance to hang out with his assigned player, Matt, and also played some catch with him. It was a fun evening and very generous of the players to be so friendly to the kids.

We put the ball in a special holder because who knows, it may one day contain the autograph of a future HOF player.

Tony Chestnut

Yesterday was the final awards assembly for Ty's kindergarten class. Prior to the kids receiving their individual recognition, they performed several songs for the parents. Somehow Ty secured a spot front and center, and Dad having put him in a bright yellow shirt, it wasn't hard to miss him. Of all the songs, this one above was the most fun to watch. Ty had been practicing it at home and it cracked me up even then.

Enjoy the clip (especially since it took 2 hours to upload it, but it only runs for three minutes or so).

Purple People Eater

Because we all enjoyed the fun of turning our tongue different colors when eating frozen treats.

Two Wheel Superstar

And here it is for your viewing enjoyment... the first true evidence of our young Ty conquering the two wheel universe. Try not to get dizzy watching it, and sorry for some of the wind noise.

Bravo Ty!

Failed Bike Intro

While filming Ty riding his bike today, he wanted to do a professional introduction. He set himself up all formal and then was at a total loss of words once I started rolling. Quite funny. The bike riding video will follow in the next post.

Tball Champions

Ty, originally uploaded by TexKap.

What an amazing weekend. The kids played four games during Saturday and Sunday. Ty's team, The Astros won them all and finished the undefeated champions of the mid-season tournament.

Ty's own contribution to the final game included his first ever home run of the season. It was a beautiful site to see.
