Its funny that something that sucks 3-4 hours of your day can have more meaning than a lot of things.
I don't know if anyone out there can relate but baseball to me is so much more than a game. It's a mental escape.

Ever since I was little my dad has been really into watching baseball, I can still remember him sitting on the couch look 10 years younger hah! The thing is back then my parents always had a busy schedule in order to provide me and brother with the life we live today. We never really got to experience baseball games like I know my dad would have wished. When I was about 8 years old is when we occasionally would attend games, but even then it wasn't the same thing.

I remember a week after the April 11.2000 opening date of AT&T Park my dad took us to visit the park, only from outside. I remember seeing the happiness in his face. It didn't matter whether he could afford bleacher seats, because simply watching the game from home with him was something really special. It wasn't even just with my dad, my brother too.

I always enjoyed going to my brothers baseball practices and games as well. I still remember everyone telling him he would become a great pitcher when he got older. The thing is, after a ball hit him in the face, the poor child was traumatized.

Baseball is always something that has brought my family together. In fact one of the best years was 2010 and 2012, because the love for baseball was stronger than ever, my dad made sure that me and my brother got to experience the maniac that the sport brought among fans.

Till this day, I continue to enjoy the game. Its' an amazing feeling sitting in a stadium full of people who are here for the same occasion. It's like no matter what anyone's financial situation, family problems or other issues that surround our lives are like, we all come to watch something. I love seeing parents bring their children to experience their first game, or elders sitting and listening to the game on the radio while having the field in front of their eyes. It's something I wouldn't really know how to explain. To make it simple, I guess it's just something that brings a smile to my face.

I look forward to the future, because I know that baseball will forever hold a place in my heart.
I one day would like to experience bringing my own children and sharing past stories.
