William’s first Cardinals game was on July 4th. It had been raining for the past several days, but seemed to let up a bit on the Fourth. Sure enough, on our way down to Busch Stadium, the rain picked up again causing a rain delay. We killed some time at the Science Center which was just as fun for William. Finally, when it was almost game time, we made it to the stadium. And who else to take William to his very first Cardinals game, but Yaya and Pops, of course!
William was a champ and made it through seven and a half innings! Yaya did a lot of entertaining as well as giving him a play by play of what exactly he was seeing.
That was William’s face / answer to, “Are you having fun?” as he excitedly shouted YES! The people behind us even commented how happy he was and how great he was doing at the game.
William wore his very own personalized Cardinals shirt which was made by A Child’s Boutique. Keri, the owner, is wonderful and said this is the most popular Cardinals design, but she can make any shirt / outfit. This is who Stephanie always uses to make her kids’ personalized shirts.
William cheered for the Cardinals with Yaya and Pops.
We had a fourth seat for him to sit on, but he mostly sat on laps. The extra seat was nice to have a little extra space and it gave him some standing room. In between innings, we either went down to the dugout to try and catch a ball or Yaya gave him Superman rides!
He was seriously so full of smiles and laughter the entire game!
Think he had fun?
Do you remember your first baseball game?
