Thomas Kelly hit his first grand slam home run in Sunday's doubleheader at Emerald Fields in Steamboat Springs. This was Thomas' first time to bat in a game since his knee got blown out in the last game of the high school season his junior year, which was May 5, 2012. Since then, he has undergone two ACL reconstructions and had to have a pinch runner (his younger brother Sean in the first game) for Sunday's games as he is taking good care of his knee so he is ready for his walk-on tryout at Lower Columbia College this fall. Attached are a few pictures from the day, this is also the last year Thomas and his younger brother Sean (16) will play on the same baseball team. Submitted by: Kat Kelly
