June 6, 1998

Ok, Ok.  So it is not all baseball.  Before the game Lesia posed with a newly born Monarch butterfly and the big sunflower in front of the house. (Growing up as a kid, Ukrainians and Hungarians always had giant sunflowers.  I have no idea why.)

Lesia and Beth were on hand at the game to cheer Alex on.(The shadows on this photo illustrate why professional photographers will use their electronic flashes in the bright sunlight.)

First up is Richard.  I can't quite tell who the second batter is. (Is it Tommy?)

Game's over.  Off to Fretz Park to demonstrate Alex's diving ability.
