Chicken Little
Chicken Little

Hi! My name is Dylan Matthew Calvagne and I am 7 years old and I am so happy to be part of the NDSS Time Square Video for 2010. I love playing sports, but baseball is my favorite. I am a home-run hitter, so watch out Barry Bonds cause you have nothing on me. This picture was taken at the Challenger League Tournament in Tampa. My team, The Barracudas, is awesome and we play so well together. I got my 1st trophy! My teammates call me "Chicken Little" cause I'm the littlest guy on the team, but my size doesn't hold me back. I have a BIG heart and I can achieve anything I put my mind to. I also have a great mom and good friends who always tell me I can do anything! And, I believe I can!
