Take Me Out to the Ballgame

I know we have a lot of team-centric articles on this website, but today I have something else on tap.  I am going to talk about what it is to be a fan and going to your team’s stadium.

I have not had the opportunity to go to SunTrust Park, but when I had the chance to go to Turner Field I would always get giddy.  

There is nothing like going to my team’s park and cheering them on with thousands of other fans, Very few other feelings compare to the excitement of a baseball park.

I had the chance to go to Chipper Jones’ second to last home game.  The atmosphere that night was off the charts and was by far the best game I have ever been to.  Every time he came up to bat, or every play he made at third, the crowd went crazy. 

I know every fan has memories of going to their team’s games when they were little.  

Those feelings only get better with age.  When young fans grow up and have kids, they take their kids to games and see their faces light up when the home team hits a home run or gets a win.  I can only imagine seeing them that happy can make the person, who taught them the love of the game, feel like they were on top of the world.

I wished I lived closer to an MLB stadium.  

I would love to go to more games.  I love the game of baseball and everything that comes with it.  The food and all the silly things that go on in between innings.  

It is the little things that make watching a game in person that much better.

So if you have never been to a game live at an MLB park, go it will be so rewarding.  It is so much better than watching a game on television.  From the national anthem - to the kiss cam in the fourth inning - to the seventh inning stretch - to the last out, going to a game is the best way to experience baseball in all its glory

What are some of your favorite experiences you guys have had at the ballpark? Let us know in the comments or on social media.
