My dad was the one who originally introduced me to baseball. One of my earliest memories is of playing catch with him. The first sporting event I ever attended was a Major League Baseball game with my dad. I played Little League baseball and my dad was the coach of the team; it taught me discipline and I played baseball all the way up to college.
My dad passed away a few years ago but I still associate baseball heavily with his memory because we had so many good times together related to that sport. I think that’s probably why I have so much baseball memorabilia from signed baseballs to an MLB spare tire cover for my car. I love baseball and I can thank my dad for that.
My son has been saving up money for a car ever since he turned sixteen and was able to get his first job. The look of glee on his face when he finally had saved up enough to buy his own car almost made my heart melt; he was so proud of himself that he had earned the money himself and that he was going to be able to make a big purchase that was truly his.
I told him that I would help him out by getting some of the extraneous things that he would need alongside the purchase of a car. For instance, I’d get him some motor oil and I’d pick up a few cool spare tire covers for him. He’s been driving his car around every day now; I only wish gas was less expensive, so that he’d be able to enjoy it more without having to drain his wallet on gas!
