Take Me Out To The Ball Game

As we swing in to April, we eagerly await Opening Day of another baseball season, especially this year here in Houston. So far our Astros are 3-1; this week we'll get our hometown heroes back on home turf. This is the first baseball season that we won't have a boy in the house talking baseball with his Dad and talking him in to attending Dollar Dog Day at Minute Maid Park. 

I can't help but yearn for a season years ago when this little boy donned these adorable uniforms, put a huge glove on his little hand, and ran enthusiastically into the outfield to pick flowers. Sigh.

And I can't help but feel that he'd have loved this newcomer from Sports Illustrated Kids, hitting the market tomorrow. The Baseball Fanbook is all things baseball and will surely hit a home run with your sports enthusiast.

Care to check out some startling stats?
Want advice on securing an autograph? 
Interested in a side-by-side comparison of two all-star players?
Looking to learn the lingo so you can talk the talk?
Hungering for trivia like how many stitches each ball has?
{Fun fact: It's 108.}
This prized ticket behind home plate has those bases covered and more.

Just look at the comprehensive Team Tidbits pages that 
tell the stories of the thirty Major League Baseball teams.
{Isn't it cool how we just happened to open up to the Astros page?}

Check out this hard hitter for your young sluggers;
it'll leave you singing (and begging that special someone to) 

Want a fun Opening Day idea to engage community stakeholders?
Cook up Hot Dog lunch for your school's faculty and staff.
Our character cam snapped this shot a few years ago;
this year's event happens today at Westwood and Bales.

It promises to rival (and be every bit as tasty as) Dollar Dog Day; 
batter up!
