Keenan tries baseball

LOL! So, I went to Keenan's high school varsity baseball game today. He's been playing all of two weeks, never played the game before (just as was the case with football). He had a single, double, and triple in succession early in the game, and a bunch of RBI's and trips across the plate.

They put him in left field on "D" today. I watched him pull off a double play, catching a short outfield fly on the hard run and then firing a shot to 3rd base, catching the runner trying unsuccessfully to get back to 3rd after starting home.

He's got his sunflower seed chewing and spitting down pat, though he pulled up as I tried to catch that.

What an amazing young man!


A few more shots from today's game. Keenan thought he'd try out playing catcher.

He had a relatively slow day at the office, batting-wise; a single, a triple, flied out, and made it first on a fielding error on a grounder he hit. Here's a news item in our local paper from the other day:
Henderson International 19, Mountain View 7 — At Mountain View, Keenan Gladd-Brown went 3-for-3 with a home run, a triple and four RBIs to help the Wolverines down the Saints for fifth place in the Spring Slam.
