Teddy Martin (pictured) is baseball ready, waiting for his pitch in the front yard. The second grader at St. Thomas More Parish School had begun playing with Westbury Little League, on the Pee Wee 7U Bulldogs team, and managed to play a few games during the shortened season. Teddy has been on the ball field since he was 4 years old, but this was his first season in an older age group with draft team formation, and he enjoyed meeting new teammates. He really misses playing baseball, seeing his team, and enjoying candy from the concession stand. During the summer, he has played some tournaments with his select team and recruits his parents for family baseball in the evenings to get some extra practice.
