Sentimental Sunday The Hero Played Baseball

Texasblu had us write a post on sports in our lives a few weeks ago on Sharing a Slice of Life.  I could not think of any sports that our family really embraced.  Then I was going through the pictures trying to find something for her regarding her grandmother and came across this information my mother-in-law had given us when she broke up housekeeping.
I remember talking to her about the Hero and his twin brother and how she handled the competition between the two in sports.  She said that everything the Hero would enter his twin would jump in also.  She finally made sure they were never in the same classes or teams.  I don't know if it made any difference or not.  I do know the Hero would only talk about his years on swimming team which he excelled at but when you spoke of baseball he would say, I was a skinny runt.  I don't know about that, but looking at the picture you can tell his mind was somewhere else.  

Which one do you think was the Hero?
This is the write up about their little league his mom kept.

This was obviously not at the same time as the above picture, she took them to all the games.
 Grandchildren, sports are okay and fun, and you learn a lot from the principles of team work, that was your granddad's philosophy.
