|Best Baseball Memory||
I’ve been to the 1995, 1997, and 2016 World Series that my beloved Cleveland Indians were in. While one punched me in the stomach, one in the face, and the last one between the legs – the memories I have from those seasons still feel like they happened yesterday. I remember the players, the craziness of the fans, how loud and shaking Jacobs/Progressive Field was. While they lost each one, I made so many great connections and friends with other fans.
The best baseball memory I have didn’t even occur on the field. It happened pregame in the concourse. June 19, 2016 – this was Father’s Day. I took my two sons to Cleveland for the weekend. The gates to Progressive Field open an hour before game time on Sundays. We decided to get there early, catch the end of BP, then watch one of their favorite players, Carlos Carrasco, warm up in the bullpen.
As we were walking through the stadium on the family deck, someone tapped me on the shoulder and wished me a Happy Father’s Day. That someone turned out to be MY favorite player, Josh Tomlin. He chatted with just us for about 5 minutes, he asked my boys a few questions, I wished him a Happy Father’s Day in return, he signed a baseball for us, then proceeded on to an interview he was going to do on a stage nearby. He told us to stick around, which we did, and after his interview he chatted another few minutes then gladly took pictures with us. A case of being in the right place at the right time but nevertheless a memory I will NEVER forget.
