White House ball

Maj. C.J. Wallington III ’87 (business administration) coached the Army team in the little league Army-Navy tee-ball game at the White House June 22.

Wallington’s team, the Fort Belvoir “Braves,” faced the “Yankees” of Norfolk Naval Station for the one-inning game. Wallington, a team leader at Army Knowledge Online, the Army’s Intranet, is the son of C.J. Wallington Jr., professor of instructional technology at RIT. Playing in the game for the Braves was 5-year-old C.J. Wallington IV.

Players from both teams, ages 5 and 6, met the president and First Lady Laura Bush, received an autographed baseball from President Bush, toured the White House and joined in a picnic with the first family.

“I was floored when I learned our team was chosen to play,” Wallington says.

Adds Grandad: “I always knew I’d have a son or grandson make it to the White House, but not both at once!”
