Real Ball Players

What's neat about the guys playing down in Ft. Myers is that they were able to play on spring training fields that belong to the Minnesota Twins and Boston Red Sox. There were only a handful of fans for each team sitting in the seats on these big stadiums, but it was a neat experience for both us fans and the players.
The boys were in hog heaven. There's nothing they like better than watching, playing and imitating the big guys playing baseball. Charlie is right there in the mix. He knows how to swing the bat with the cluck of the tongue (to acknowledge that the imaginary ball did in fact make contact with the bat), throw a mean fastball, and run the bases like Willie May Hayes.

Don't try to leave them out.

And when it's all said and done, they give 110%. Then pass out.

I nominate the family shot on the field for the Christmas photo. What better shot to sum up the family?! :)
