Ollie Ollie Oxen Free!

You found him! The first "find" in the treasure hunt was a great success and Taylor had so much fun seeing everyone at the Lake Monsters's game last night and throwing out the first pitch! Remember, each time you find Taylor you can enter to win a free week at his basketball camp and hang out with him for a while! The next date is coming up, so stay tuned for more details and be ready to look for him again!

Here are some pictures from the game last night!

Taylor signs t-shirts for some fans

Walking back with Champ... they make a great couple! ;)

The first fans to find Taylor! Jordan and Chris from Shelburne watched from behind home plate as Taylor threw the first pitch out!

Taylor's oldest fan? We think not! Taylor visits with Mr. Wise from Colchester pre-pitch!

A group of Red Cross (and Taylor) fans!

Finally... a few GIRL fans! Remember, Taylor's camp is for girls too so get some friends together and sign up! It's sure to be a fun week!

Taylor visits with two boys who are coming to his camp this year! See you July 30th guys!

Some boys from Colchester asked to take a picture of Taylor with their cell-phone camera, so we got one of THEM with ours!

And another Star of Vermont Basketball...Taylor takes a few minutes to catch up with former UVM coach Tom Brennan.

What would a baseball game be without throwing some heat? Taylor and Chris took on the radar detector. Chris' wind-up looks ready for the majors but we're going to keep Taylor on the basketball court... :)

Thanks to everyone who came out and saw Taylor! We hope to see you at the next one!
