PLACE: Little League Field - Bantam diamond
SUBJECT: StellaDella kicking up dust
I don't know what she likes to do more, falling down each and every play or kicking up dust running for the ball. Whenever she made a move on the field today her feet were dragging. She was dragging them so she could watch the dust puff up around her. Whenever her team was on the field, she would fall down in the infield dirt on each and every play. Her teammate would be on the other side of the infield making the play and SD would fall down. She would be nowhere near the ball and down she would collapse in the dirt - she did it in empathy for her teammate I guess. Sigh. She has just 2 more games to play until the end of her T-ball season.
