I Have Been Waiting For This Moment For A Long Time…

To say that this is a dream of mine is a true statement.  The possibility of this dream becoming a reality became real almost four years ago when my wife and I learned that we were pregnant with our first child.

You see, ever since the day we began talking about having kids I envisioned taking my child to a ballgame.  Baseball was such a fun and entertaining pat of my youth that I couldn’t, and still cannot wait, to share it with my kids.  Boy or girl, it didn’t matter.  This was strictly about sharing my passion for the sport with the person I am most passionate about.

So today, if the weather holds up, I am taking my soon-to-be 3 year old son to his first baseball game.  He does not know it yet.  But each time we drive by a stadium or school with a field or park with a baseball diamond he says “I want to go baseball’.  Well Dylan, today is that day and I can hardly wait to take you to your first game!!!

The Marlins are hosting the Rockies today at 5:05 and we will be there.  I cannot promise how long we’ll stay or if we’ll even sit in our seats.  What I can promise is enthusiasm for the event, memories for me and my son, and popcorn – lots and lots of popcorn!!!
