My little ballplayer returned to Progressive Field to run the bases again today!
As soon as we arrived at the ballpark, Alan asked to go down on the field. It took some negotiating, but I was able to convince him to wait until after the game…
In the meantime, we bought an Indians car at the team shop, took some pictures from the centerfield bridge to the parking garage, and played at the Indians play area. Then when Yan Gomes sent the Tribe home a winner on a homer in the 8th, Alan got to run on the field.
This was Alan’s best performance in three career outings running the bases. He held my hand until he was midway between 2nd and 3rd, and then he took off by himself and sprinted for home!
