Young Israel's
baseball and
softball league
attracts scores
of players
- Tuesday nights
at Thompson
Middle School.

Tuesday nights during the
summer at Thompson
Middle School are filled
with the sounds of the pop
of a ball hitting the pocket
of a first baseman's mitt,
shouts of infielders calling
for the relay and the voices
of coaches giving
encouragement. It's the
Young Israel League, and
it's an opportunity for boys
and girls to learn the
games of baseball and
softball while playing them.
Parents spend a part of
each session teaching
some fundamentals before
the action heats up and
teams compete. For many,
it's the joy of getting that
first hit, or the feeling that
they are part of a team. For
all, though, it's a chance to
run, to throw, to catch and
to hit. Most important, it's a
chance to have fun.

Elisha Kroner swings and hits a single.

Sandra Cohen gets ready to make

Members of teams 1 and 4 take their eyes off the ball and focus on the camera instead.
