It was the third or fourth game of the season and my seven-year-old granddaughter (she’s eight now) hadn’t reached first base yet. She wasn’t too happy. Then late in the game she came up to bat again and luckily I was there to record the great event for posterity. My camera settings were too slow to freeze the action in the photo but I think I succeeded in capturing the movements of both ball and bat as she got her first hit. She’s happy now. So is her grandfather.
