Softball Noli

Noli has elected to play softball this year (yay! I was growing tired of soccer :p ) Her team is named the Ponytail Express (cute, huh?!!) and purple is their color! Her dad is the team dad and one of the coaches so I know that makes her little softball heart sing!

This past Saturday was her first game so, of course, her proud parents and grandparents were there to clap and yell encouragement.... and take pictures.....

Up at bat

She's got a pretty good swing

Look closely and you can see that one of our dad coaches has just the word Express on his shirt. 
No Ponytail in sight. You'll see the reason for pointing this out in a minute.... :p

Maybe, but probably just checking out the dirt

In the dugout, waiting for her turn at bat
and being a goofball LOL!

Get that elbow up!

Pretty good swing....

But didn't connect with the ball

Love these bronze statues!
Similar ones are all around at libraries, town centers and such.

We're the Visitors....
Look closely and you'll see that this coach dad is on the other team (the Kittens). The coaches' shirts had a pink paw print with "Kittens" written below it. Oh my, on that burly guy :)
(I think our dads were pretty smart to just have "Express" on their shirts!)

Hey, hey, we're one up!
But note the two outs.....

And the final score!
The Ponytail Express WINS!!

It was a good game and all played well!
But, of course, the best part is the snack!

She always knows when somebody's taking a pic
and she was up against me and her other grandfather

This is how she poses a lot....
little smarty pants

Caught her giggling anyway!

Now we're off to grab a little lunch before taking our sweetie back to mommy. All in all, a pretty terrific day!

That must be a lot of fun ! I have to admit I have never heard of this sport !

Allison Rust said...

I loved softball! That's the best team name.

Great team name! I had fun playing for a couple years as a kid, but I have to admit I was on the worst team in the league. Literally. One year all the other teams got together and made us an encouragement card because we didn't win a single game!

Kathleen said...

What a cutie! Oh those soft ball days! My daughter played all the way into high school. Lots of fun times!

fredamans said...

She looks like she had the best of times and that's what counts!

Splendid Little Stars said...

aawww! She's such a cutie!
Good swing and follow through. I'm sure she'll be connecting with the ball quite a bit.
Hubby and I helped coach our daughter's softball team for 6 wonderful years. such fun!

Monica said...

Oh, she looks like she's having so much fun! Love that they only have "Express" on the shirts! ;)

OMG...I love the pink shoes! They only had boring black back in my day! And their team name is so cute :) Glad Noli had fun and they won their first game!

Happy Pink Saturday,

That is the best kind of fun ever. I have a great grandson that plays and I went today. However, they lost.

Noli is so cute and she has such a wonderful Grandma to brag about her all the time! Don't blame you a bit. We're both lucky enough to be close by to enjoy all the fun stuff!

Your softball pictures are so much fun, and it looks like the kids had a great time! I love the big ol' dads in the girlie T's! THOSE are a secure buncha guys! ;) Visiting from The Grand Social!
