Our family is on a tight budget so we don't get to do that many outings with our son. We love baseball and winning these tickets would be a great opportunity for us to have a fun family outing and enjoy the great American Pastime together.

I never knew it when I was growing up in Duluth, but my dad signed with the St Louis Cardinals. We never knew that the baseball we played with was actually the game ball he got for a grand slam in Padukah. Moma said he played in the Kitty League. That's the AAA version of the 1950's. Actually it was called the GA-FL league. I always played softball and when my 3 kids came along, I had to give up my playing so I could coach them. Now, I help coach my 4 yr old grandson and his team. I'm the 3rd base coach as well as the Team Granny. LOL, the kids love it when a 53 year old fat woman gets out there and runs the bases. I sure would like to take my grandkids to see a Gwinnett Braves game. Three generations of Robinson baseball fans would be attending. But I'm sure PawPaw Ben Robinson would be watching from heaven too, making it 4 generations. Love you daddy.

Why do I love baseball? Baseball is the “Truest” of all games! It’s a game of skill, trust and teamwork. Like life itself, it's a game of live examples. Each player has to listen to each other, respect each other and trust each other in order to win. That's why I love baseball and it's also why I enjoy taking my wife and grand kids to the games. I like to see them watching each team all the while learning how to work things out together themselves. My wife and grand kids don't know they are also learning how to work things out together in life but they are. Baseball teaches us how to have fun and how to laugh. We all learn by watching other people enjoy life. Baseball is a wonderful life lesson. I love baseball because "We" are always right there n the game with the players.

Baseball is a time-honored tradition where every live pitch, smack of a glove or crack of a bat floods my senses with memories of moments shared alongside loved ones separated now by distance or astral plane. An evening flight over the Heartland, revealing the diamond glow of rural ballfields offers the most assuring comfort that, as Americans, we're still on the right track.
