Little Leaguers Hit Homers at White House

From Times Wire Reports

President Bush, accompanied by his parents and his brother, Florida Gov. Jeb Bush, saw the first home runs of the White House T-ball series at the South Lawn ball field.

Tevin Devon Poole, 8, playing for the Fort Lincoln Brewers of Washington, D.C., lofted a shot that soared over the center field fence 110 feet from home plate.

"It was the best time in my life, when I hit that home run," Poole said as he gave a round of post-game interviews like a pro.

Diamante Ross, playing for the Benning Park Pirates of Washington, later answered with his own homer.

It was the second T-ball game at the White House in a series inaugurated May 6 by the president.
