High School Baseball?

I know it is time for High School Football, not Baseball, but since I like baseball better, and since these are the photos on my computer, I thought I’d post these.Pettys pictures August 23, 2007 031Pettys pictures August 23, 2007 033



I won’t write much about it; Montgomery came within 1 victory of winning the Regional Finals.

where we beat Texas City 4 – 3.

High School sports are big in Montgomery, and the fans really get into it!Pettys pictures August 23, 2007 041 Pettys pictures August 23, 2007 109







I’d tell you who these kids are if I knew, but just suffice it to say that they are the 2007 Montgomery Bears Baseball team and fans!

My dear friend Lori is the Athletic Director’s (Leonard George) secretary.   She has asked Bill for particular shots to encourage the athletes as  role models to youngsters.  She has so many creative ideas for Bill’s pictures that she should be on OUR staff!Pettys pictures August 23, 2007 172

Baseball has been my favorite sport all my life, but it became my passion when Nathanael played. third baseman I enjoy nothing more than watching him.  I miss it more than I can say – I wonder if my passion will be the same when he has his son(s) out there playing?  I bet I’ll be one obnoxious baseball Granny! 




God bless your day!


About Petty Bunch

The Petty Bunch is what we have called our family since Bill and I (Janina) began our family back in the early 1980s. We have gone down many roads together - homeschooling our kiddoes, enjoying the freedom of entrepreneurship many years, working at "real jobs" other years. Through it all, we have been loved with God's everlasting love, and have found that underneath are His everlasting arms! We are blessed to have been married for over 36 years, and have 3 incredible adult children, a wonderful daughter-in-law, an amazing son-in-law, and SEVEN grandchildren: four precious granddaughters, three handsome grandsons - so far. We are empty nesters, still enjoy the life of an entrepreneur and the freedom it gives us to continue enjoying our kids and now, their kids!

    Dear Obnoxious Granny,
    You made me laugh!  I enjoyed the pictures in spite of not knowing anyone.  Great pictures of fun times.

    Not if she starts wanting to wear her uniform day after day and nothing else!  That boy’s glove weren’t laced up tight!

    Hail thou Montgomery, School that I love. Green pines surround us, Blue skies above.  Fling high our colors, purple and gold, ever Montgomery, we will uphold!
    For the life of me I can’t remember the fight song!  Help me out here!

    B, if you’re talking about Bub’s glove, he relaces all his gloves to his own designs.  If it’s not tight it’s because he wanted it that way.  He’s become a professional glove lacer!
    Gen, I’m thinking!  …we’re here in back of you.  We’ll fight and fight with all our might for Montgomery’s Purple and Gold!…  I don’t think that’s the right order, and I can’t remember the first line.  I’ll ask Lori!

    Watching your g’babies play will be an entirely different experience from watching your kids!  When Rob & Kim played (or drill team)…….we wanted them to be perfect & competitive!  But after watching my g’babies in different activities……..all I could think of was “oh, aren’t they cute in their little uniforms”, or “oh, that wasn’t his/her fault”, or “who cares if we win or lose as long as they’re enjoying themselves”!  Rob was knocked around in both baseball & football & we said, “shake it off!!”, but I think I’d go running on the field like a “crazed granny” if any of my g’babies got hurt!!  I just hope you get to know the joys one of these days w/a g’baby “performing”, ha!!  I know you’ll love it as much as B & I have!!  Love you, Dodie  BTW, loved the pictures – even if I didn’t know them!  And I can remember wondering if Nathaneal had any other clothes other than a base ball uniform, ha!!!

    My new DIL is a baseball fan and so I could end up with grandbabies babies in uniform, too.  Wouldn’t that be fun?  I hope I am able to go see them play (hypothetically speaking, of course)!  I never had the opportunity to be a baseball mom, but I would love to join the ranks of obnoxious baseball grannies.  (I don’t think you have an obnoxious bone in your body!)

    Now I hope you know the crack I made about the glove lacings was tongue-in-cheek, such as that boy’s steps don’t go all the way to the top, and one brick shy of a load!   Also, note to granmas, if they play t-ball when theya re only 4 and 5, which is the norm, you may think, oh how long do I have to sit here?  ha  When we went to see Jake play t-ball, I remember thinking, wow, were our kids this bad?  Then when we watched Derek play YMCA T-ball (boring to begin with) when he was only four, it was so bad, the kids were bored.  Scooter and I did not realize that as our kids got older their playing skills had improved very much so the last several years were spent watching really good ball games.  Going back is a shock to the system.  Don’t get me wrong, its fun to see your “babies” in uniforms and cleats and all the stuff that goes with it, but the boredom factor is pretty high.  Hey, just being honest here. ha

    I got it, B but was wondering whether Nina did or not. : )

    You’re right – I didn’t get it!  No wonder his glove wasn’t laced up tight!
