If you’re a baseball fan, a die hard baseball fan…there’s a very good chance that at some point you dreamed of playing catch with your favourite player; I would have loved to play catch with Mickey Mantle, Derek Jeter, Paul O’Neil…how great would that have been!!
Last night a young fan of the LA Angels, a centre fielder on his team, had his dream come true as he got to play catch with Mike Trout before last night’s game. What a thrill…and this truly is what makes baseball so great…I love hockey and football, but there just isn’t the same connection with the fan as there is in baseball…it’s the perfect game!!
A big shout out to Mike Trout for making this young man’s dreams come true and for showing all of us that baseball continues to be the fan’s game!!!
