Mom's First MLB Game - June 7, 2014 Orioles vs. Athletics
We killed time in line by talking to a nice lady who knew her baseball. That made the time go by really fast and Mom felt like she learned quite a bit. One of the most fun parts of the trip was our time talking baseball back and forth. Mom had some awesome questions that she was asking me, such as who I thought was the most overrated Hall of Famer, who was my favorite Hall of Famer, who was the most overrated of todays players, stuff about baseball rules, and other things like that. It was a lot of fun dispensing some knowledge to someone who really wanted to know, and not someone like my wife, who gets a gazed-over look in her eyes when I talk baseball.
Above, you can see Mom, my wife and my son taking in the pre-game warmups. Mom didn't move from her seat once we sat, she was so excited to be at the park.
She also told me that for the first time in about 20 years or so, she bought and opened a few packs of baseball cards for herself. I think I may have awoken a monster. I sincerely believe that she is going to get back into collecting. Wouldn't that be awesome? I wonder if she'd start a blog... wishful thinking perhaps.
Mom's key phrase this whole weekend was that she wanted to make some memories and I know this truly was the case. I was so happy to be able to give her the gift of taking her to her first MLB game. She has said that she might want to do this again next year and she is also really interested in a trip to Cooperstown. I think I can make that happen.
