If you drink and eat baseball, if you played baseball as a child, traded your baseball card collection with fellow hard-core baseball fans, and can recite stats about your favorite basketball players, then you would definitely want your children to love baseball as well.
You want to let them love baseball as well you can’t wait to take them to their first ballgame! Taking little children to their first ball game requires lots of preparation, though. Here are some tips on bringing your child to a baseball game.
If your child is old enough, play baseball with him at the playground. Explain to him the game.
Read baseball books to him. Watch baseball movies with him like Angels in the Outfield. Reading and watching baseball stuff with him could really get him into baseball love.
Buy a team cap and shirt for him like these cute Yankees baby clothes. Little kids in team jerseys look so cute and it is a great way to show team spirit. The TV cameras love them as well! You might suddenly realize that the image of your baby sleeping peacefully amidst the noise in a baseball game is being seen on national TV!
Tell your child about the players of your favorite team if he is old enough. Cheer like crazy when they come out.
Bring a jacket for your child. The game could start on a sunny day but it can get windy later.
Don’t forget to put on the sunblock (and of course, the team caps!).
Bring lots of food and small toys. Kids can have really short attention span so they need the toys to be entertained. If you happened to bring your baby, he may be too young to understand what is going on and he may sleep through the game.
Don’t forget to take lots of pictures!
