Yankees - Padres

Although a hot and humid night for T Ball, it was a one of the better T ball games of the short 2010 season. Taking on a Padres team who outnumbered a Yankees team, which found many of its members on Summer vacation, the grey shirts hit the ball well, and executed in the field to remain unbeaten on the year.

With a roster consisting of eight players, the Yankees faced an army of Padres. Although it was a mighty opponent, the Yankees hit the ball well. Led by lead-off hitter Ann, each one of the Yankee hitters was reminiscent of the Bronx Bombers on this afternoon at Kirkwood Elementary Diamond. After Ann players such as Jake, Colin and Sydney sent screaming liners into the outfield, as Ben cleaned the bases in the Yankees' at bat of each inning.

Execution in the field as well as hustle on the basepaths was the theme on Tuesday night. The Yankees did a nice job of stopping the ball before it escaped into the outfield, as well as many unassisted outs at second base. Above Jake scoots around the bases to score one of the many Yankee runs on the night.
