Take Me Out to the Ballgame


My son is an individual.  Despite the fact that his parents are crazy football fans and could care less about baseball, he decided when he was about 2 that he loved baseball.  He'd willingly sit and watch it on TV.  We've even Tivoed a few games for him or let him watch portions of Sports Center.  We've taken him to a few minor league games in the past, but tonight we took our oldest two children to their first Major League Baseball Game.  

As we drove to the ballpark, my son started singing the song and said, "Come on everyone join me" 

So please join us...

Take Me Out to the Ballgame


Take me out to the crowds (hmm...not quite)


Buy me some peanuts


and crackerjacks ballpark franks


I don't care if I never get back


Let me root, root, root for the home team


If they don't win it's a shame


For it's one, two, three strikes your out


At the old....ball....game!!!



A good time was had by all.  And the looks on my kids faces as they took in the sights, sounds, and tastes of the ball field was my absolute favorite part. 


  1. that is so sweet, crystal. :) it looks like everyone had a blast. 'everyone' being you 4, because it doesn't look like anyone else was there!

  2. Crystal -

    How fun for you guys! Baseball ROCKS! Our family is a bunch of baseball-aholics! We live, eat and breathe baseball during the season. When we lived in the SF Bay Area we were at Candlestick Park all the time - tickets were cheap and plentiful. However, once PacBell Park opened things changed.

    Candlestick was a very old stadium so only real baseball fans would go to the games. PacBell was brand new, state of the art and became the place to be seen. You couldn't watch a game in "peace" 'cuz the people around you were too busy doing the up/down thing - food, bathroom, more food, more food. . .it was really sad and the kids missed going.

    Now that we live in NV we are able to take the kids to watch the Reno Silver Sox minor league ball and it's affordable, small venue and lots of fun. We do watch our beloved SF Giants on TV all the time though. The may not be a great team but they are our team! LOL

  3. That last shot says it all. Is he in is glory or what !!!

  4. Too cute - love the pictures withthe words of the song. Would make a great slide show!!!!
    Looks like a blast was had by all.

  5. I am glad you had such a great time! Joey would love to play some tee ball with him the next time we get together. (Which I hope is soon!)

  6. Hey there! What a great family outing. Looks like you all were
