Take Me Out to the Ball Game!

What an amazing Father-Son night! It was so much fun taking Andrew to see the Redhawks play ball last night, absolutely everything was perfect! Here’s a list of all the items that contributed to perfection:

  1. The weather was perfect. The temperature at the start of the game was likely low 80’s, probably low 70’s at the end of the game.
  2. Sunmart provides two free general admission tickets in exchange for a $25 receipt for games on Monday and Tuesday, so the price was right.
  3. We were given a free plunger from Robert Gibb & Sons. (The first 1000 fans all got one.) Quirky, but Andrew sure had fun with his plunger!
  4. Andrew was given a free kids meal … kids under 12 get a free hotdog, chips, and pop. We had both eaten already, so it was the perfect snack. (The kettle corn later was tasty too!)
  5. Andrew genuinely enjoyed being there. I don’t know how much of the game he watched, but he absolutely enjoyed being there. I taught him some of the finer points all 6-year-olds should know about baseball (singles, doubles, triples, how many innings, how many outs in an inning, etc.)

We stayed for the whole game, which was well past Andrew’s bedtime. He talked non-stop … even on the ride home. It was just way too much fun, a perfect Father-Son moment!

Oh … and the Redhaws won by a score of 18-1. Considering all the other ingredients in this perfect night, I think the winning score was probably the least important. Hopefully this is one that will stick in Andrew’s memory for a very long time!
