    Baseball

    Just because I'm bored and do not want to work on my assignment, I thought I would post a great first event that many dads have done for years.

    I took my son to his first baseball game: $80.00 for two seats, a$4.00 lemonade, $7.50 beer, he cut his finger on sunflower seeds and a large man sat in front of him blocking his view. (my son was polite and ask to switch seats with his uncle) A nice older couple gave my son a team pin for his ballcap, he got a free team poster, and he laught and giggled throughout the game with his cousin and uncle. I'm not sure he ever knew where to look when something happened on the field and after the game while eating fish and chips he asked "who won?".
    In the end as the commercial states--PRICELESS.

    The main thing is he had himself a good day out with his dad and that means a lot to young kids.

    Does anyone have a great story, or memory, about taking their kids to their first ballgame?

    Nope. I don't have kids. But I sure remember the first time my dad brought me, 11 y/o. I never had been before, it was my dad and my three older brothers. One of the memories that I hope I never forget. I didn't get to do nearly enough stuff with dad when I was home. I remember him patiently explaining the game, as I wasn't up to speed on it yet. Good times

    I don't have kids. However, I remember my parents taking me to games when we lived in California when I was about 6 years old. We were Giants fans, and I remember one time my father was going to take a picture of a home run hit by Willie Mays. He was about to take the picture when he saw the ball come right at him. Her threw the camera to my mother and caught the ball.

    i remember when my dad took me to a red sox game when i was little... Carl Yastremski (spelling?) was trying to hit some major hit and at the game we were at he hit it.. I remember tugging at dad asking him over and over again what he was saying during his speech and if he would get a pony for winning. (I always thought everyone got a pony if they won something). I remember never knowing what was going on but a flyb ball came our way and the people behind us caught it... they gave me the ball.
    After the game, somehow we got it signed by Carl and I have it to this day.

    was one of the best days I ever had with my dad.

    Vine maples and sapling alders
    Searched for lady slippers
    But instead
    Found blackberry riots and

    An old skid road

    Skunk cabbage
    While waves wrapped
    Intricate lacings of weeds

    His cyanotic eyes
    Were hard enough to make
    The sun turn tail and
    Tender enough to attract me
    To his world of illusion

    I remember when my dad took me for my first baseball game. It was for my 13th birthday. I had a blast, I hope I don't ever forget it, because I have only seen him once since then.
