From the Author
My young sons inspired me to write this book. We spend summer nights at a local minor league ballpark soaking up the atmosphere. I remember the thrill I got as a young boy when my dad would tell me he bought tickets to a Cardinals game in St. Louis. Taking a trip to the city to watch my favorite team was a real treat, and I have vivid memories of those times with my dad. I wanted to create a book that shows kids what the ballpark experience is like and introduces them to the elements of the sport, whether they enjoy baseball at a minor league ballpark or a major league stadium. I hope you enjoy reading this book with your children and connect with each other through baseball.
