Our family is full of Tiger fans. My parents have season tickets, my children have been spoiled by going to many games and the youngest 3 are even kids club members.
Well, yesterday a dream came true for our 11 year old. He was chosen to be a part of Kids Take the Field. Which means his name was announced with a position. Then, he ran to said location and waited for the Tiger’s player for that position to run out to meet him.
The Tigers haven’t been bringing their A game this season. We have a pretty new and unrecognizable roster. However, our right field is Nick Castellanos. He’s been around for a bit now and is a great ball player. That is who James was matched up with.
Every single year my parents take my husband, myself and our 6 children to one game all together. Well, yesterday was that game. Only we added 10 other family members. James’ dad and stepmom, my husband’s parents and 3 sets of aunts/uncles.
Besides James’ time on the field, our family made it on the big screen 3 other times. We won Miller Lite prize packs, that included free beer. My youngest son got C. Mo’s (a former Tiger’s player) autograph. It was a good day.
