Father’s Day Heroes

We at Driving the Midwest would like to wish all of you fathers out there a thoroughly enjoyable and relaxing Father’s Day.
We fathers know there’s a special bond and love for our children that doesn’t require a designated day to enact, but it’s worthwhile to reflect on that feeling, remember some of those priceless moments, and most importantly, just to spend time with your kids.
For me, the game of baseball is a huge part of being a father. I have three active boys, aged four, eight and nine. While the four-year-old isn’t playing the game yet, he loves to attend his brothers’ games and keep all of the other parents and siblings company (whether they want it or not!).
I coach my eight-year-old’s team in little league, and it’s a joy watching him play the game and seeing the rest of the boys develop throughout the season.
My oldest is playing travel ball now and watching him make a great scoop at first base or strike out another batter makes me one proud Dad.
Whether it’s watching them play, coaching them, or sitting in the stands with them at Comerica Park watching their heroes play the game, baseball is a great way for me to bond with my boys.
Whatever your “baseball” is in your family, I hope this Father’s Day is full of it.
