Sepia Saturday provides an opportunity for genealogy bloggers to share their family history through photographs. Today’s prompt coincides with the first full day of the 2012 London Olympics and features two sports you won’t see – cricket and baseball.
I had fun going through my collection of photos to add to the list of sports you will not see in the Olympic games.
Catch Ball Watching
This first photo is of my great-grandfather, Myron David Webber, playing catch with one of his grandchildren. It looks as though Yvonne’s coach has taught her the “ready” stance – knees bent, eyes on the ball, ready to catch the ball at a moment’s notice.
And here Yvonne is intently watching the ball …. not moving forward to catch it. My mistake – the sport of Ball Watching, not Catch.
