MM 3-16: My Granddaughter’s First Hit

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 inΒ  capturing the movements of both ball and bat as she got her first hit. She’s happy now. So is her grandfather.


My granddaughter about to rip the ball into right field for her first base hit ever.

    Wonderful shot! (Both from you and your granddaughter.) And I like that the ball is blurred – it shows the force of the hit. πŸ™‚
