Houston County photographer creates yard sign challenge for little league players

Bruce Avery couldn't bring back baseball games, but he could introduce a new one for players.

WARNER ROBINS, Ga. — When little league games in central Georgia were cancelled due to COVID-19, Bruce Avery knew the players would be disappointed.

"We just wanted to do something for these leagues that we have photographed," he said.

Avery owns Avery Sports Photo and decided to create yard signs to put in players' yards as part of a fun challenge.

The signs encourage players to take a photo with the sign, post it online, and put it in another player's yard without getting caught to 'steal home.'

"It was just a little fun to have and to see it passed along," Avery said.

He says he gave about a dozen signs each to Warner Robins American Little League and the Perry Junior League.
