This weekend my mother and I will take a road trip. I remember my Mother telling me in Junior High (I think the 7th grade) that if Ken Griffey Jr. made it to the Major League Baseball Hall of Fame she wanted to see it with her own eyes. Funny enough, out of her 3 children I was the one that said they would take her to see it. Now here I am living up to this promise (both of my siblings have to work & can’t join) and we are both excited about the trip to come.
My father introduced me to football and basketball, but my mother had a love for both sports & baseball. After her & my father divorced, she helped nurture our love for sports and honestly I don’t mind sharing this experience with her. She taught me everything I know about baseball and I really hope that this experience will be one to remember for her
Make sure you visit http://baseballhall.org/visit/hall-of-fame-weekend to see what our weekend will look like and we will share the experience on Snap Chat & Twitter! Wish me luck, LOL!
