What are the physical characteristics of Ron?
Ron has curly hair and small feet. The small feet are an issue for him in this story because he wants to play kickball, and because of his feet he cannot kick very far. His problem is solved when he teams up with Louis, the yard teacher. With Louis on his side, Ron's "team" is at least able to score, though they still lose by a huge margin. This does not stop Ron from wanting to play, or for assigning Louis a portion of the blame for their losses.
