It's another "Tyler Slide!" - SAFE!!

Tyler, the speedster, steals second base and slides in safely.

Picture on top left shows the ball heading for the second baseman's glove while Tyler is into his slide.

Picture on top right shows Tyler's foot hitting the bag before the baseman can make the tag.

Pictures on bottom left and right show the resulting gloom by baseman and the resolute stare of Tyler to ensure that the Umpire calls him safe.

Grandsons make baseball so much more fun!

I don't know. Looks like an aggressive slide. Call for a reply. I want him suspended. Oops, this is real baseball not the majors!

Grandsons are the only reason to watch baseball. ;-) Otherwise, it's like watching the grass grow.
Superb action shots in close sequence. He's clearly safe by a long way.
