How not to create lasting father-son memories at a ballgame

Yeah, we can understand the excitement some Mariners fans might have had yesterday when Kyle Seager hit his historic grand slam to tie the game in the 14th inning. I mean, not everyday you get to see something like that. But when you have a 3-year-old child with you, it’s still probably a good idea to be preoccupied with his safety than it is to lose all sense of proportion and chase after an $8 baseball like you can’t just walk into a store and buy it.

Anyhow, the Mariners finally got themselves some national attention this morning. But it’s more because of the Dad in the above video creating a lasting baseball memory for his son that won’t involve anything taking place on the field. Good thing the child apparently was not seriously hurt. But I bet he’ll remember Seager’s blast years from now.
