190/365 Big League Slugger

Newer Older

This is my nephew Troy Coughlin. He is obsessed with Baseball. His birthday is Monday and he will be 7 years old. At the ripe ole age of 6 he was knocking the ball out of the park, literally, and won the Home Run trophy in the All Star tournament. I would need to check with my sister on how many home runs he hit but I know it was somewhere in the range of 20 on the season. He has a knack for baseball and we hope he sticks with it as long as he is having fun. So Happy Birthday Troy and Uncle Matt will print you a nice big picture for you to hang in your room!
