Tom Cruise has thanked the "polite" paparazzi for their continued courtesy throughout his kids' baseball and soccer games. The movie star and his fiancee Katie Holmes were dogged by photographers every time they attended matches featuring Cruise's adopted kids CONNOR and ISABELLA, during the actress' recent pregnancy. But Cruise insists the snappers are always considerate and have never been a nuisance. He says, "A lot of times I have a press corps that I go to the game with - not voluntarily - but they're actually very polite. "They get the photos and then watch the game and they actually start following the games. "As I'm going through the paparazzi, (I hear) 'Hey, Connor pitched great today.'"
