Judge Tom and Norma Ruth Lee are happy to be able to follow their five grandchildren’s many activities with this season of spring sports. One day they attended Claudia’s track meet and were grateful to be able to follow at the same time on Game Changer the baseball games of Tom’s Madison Central Baseball team in Clinton and Steven’s baseball game being played in Baton Rouge.
They had a Deep South Twitter message forwarded to them about Madison Central being the number One ranked High School Team in the nation with a personal tweet about Tom Lee III’s contribution to the game that read “Tom Lee (MS) had a solid game for the Madison Central Jaguars Baseball, roping two balls into right center field and playing a solid Short Stop.” Under the tweet the Dad of one of the players wrote about Tom, “Most versatile kid I know! Clutch!! Swiss Army Knife.“
