I’ve been meaning to write this blog all summer…and well now we’re officially in fall, but since the A’s just clinched playoff spot, I figured it’s time to finally get it done! I’m no baseball fan, but my boys are, and their Dad definitely is. Here in the Bay Area we are fortunate to have 2 MLB teams, however the one on the SF side tends to get most of the shine…all of the time. This season however, it’s all about the “Beast Bay,” Go A’s!!
We basically live in the Oakland A’s backyard. The Coliseum is just a few miles away and for the past couple years, the A’s along with Black Bear Diner have sponsored our little league T-Ball and Farm Teams with jerseys. All this to say that the Oakland A’s have pretty much cemented themselves as my boys’ favorite team. This year we went to a handful of games, the boys are always excited to wear their (little league) team jerseys, and every time I am so impressed and appreciative of all the family and kid-friendly activities. I mean a little incentive and a game break never hurts, right…. 🙂
Stomper Fun Zone is a big hit with my kid’s…they have a play areas that cater to the small set…
Plus interactive games where the kids can line up and give it their best pitch….mine will stay there ALL DAY!
Another big favorite is the Plinko game, it’s totally free and the kids can keep lining up to try their luck and see just where the Plinko puck lands….and get a prize!
And — we can’t forget the game giveaways! We have more than a few bobbleheads, plus all the great memories from hanging out at the ballpark!
Let’ ssee how far the team can take it this year…and we certainly can’t wait to do it all again next year too!
