To whom it may concern,
I had a great time this Father’s Day weekend with my dad and my son. We took a day trip to Dallas with a plan to “Meet the Rangers” and see a Frisco RoughRiders (Texas Rangers AA team) game.
We enrolled my son in the Jr. Rangers club and were invited to a session at the Ballpark in Arlington for a fun time. But it was hot and my 5-year old did win any raffle prizes
I didn’t think it would be all that awesome, but my son was excited. I’m just glad we made our way to Frisco for our Father’s Day double header.
The stadium is interesting. I haven’t been to many minor league ball games – but a cathedral it isn’t.
It was a great experience. They have accessible players actually signing autographs. It’s not as big a deal to my son as it is to me. I like getting autographs – and I still remember striking out time and time again when I was little hanging over the railings at a ballpark.
A kid can only yell “Frank Thomas I’m your biggest fan” so many times before the heart rips itself out and plunges to the ground.
I’m hoping he gets the autograph bug, too. I got the privilege of introducing him to the future Texas Rangers, especially Jurickson Profar and Mike Olt.
They didn’t play that day, Profar and Olt, which was a bummer – but the Hein house now has an autographed ball with the two above listed fellows’ signatures. It’s a memory we’ll be able to share for a long, long time.
A happy dad
