Take me out to the ball game

I realized I haven’t taken my son to a ball game. That seems wrong seeing that the KC Royals was in the World Series last year. However, the price of tickets have went up, and honestly, dragging a kid to a long game just isn’t that much fun. I mean, I get bored and start people watching. I can’t expect a 7 year old not to get bored and restless. Then it becomes more about entertaining him and not about the game at all.

The solution was to go to a game that is more kid friendly. The KC T-bones was the answer. They are an independent professional baseball team and are geared more towards families and kiddos. The tickets are affordable, the mascot is interactive, and there’s a bounce house and playground behind the bleachers. Throw in a fully loaded hot dog and a cold beer (for mom of course) and a fun evening was had by all. I only  heard “I’m bored” once and it was short lived when my son discovered the playground.

I still don’t think he’s ready for the Royals (or maybe I’m not ready for a kid and the Royals) but I can no longer say that I haven’t taken him to a game.
