My 10 year old just started baseball this year and he is loving it so far. He wants to watch a “real” baseball game. I’m working on finding one in-person we can go to, but in the meantime, is there a past baseball game that would be fun to watch with him?
I’ve never played baseball, so I’m learning the rules as we go and I think we’d both enjoy watching an exciting game. Since I have 0 knowledge, no matter what game you guys recommend I’ll have no idea the outcome!
Oh, and sites to watch the game on would be helpful too.
His little league team name is Lions, but I don’t think there’s an MLB team with that name - just the football team as far as I know.
So we don’t have any allegiance to any team currently. I don’t think I could name more than the Yankees and White sox off the top of my head, and I’m not sure my son knows even those (though sometime he surprises me with what he knows).
Thanks for the link! We will pick a game from that list and watch it. I’ll let you know how it goes!
‘That ballpark is alive’(Oct. 17, 2017, ALCS Game 4): The Yanks show they’re never out of it with the raucous home crowd behind them, rallying from a late 4-0 deficit against the Astros behind big hits from Judge and Gary Sánchez.
If you dislike the Yankees I’d suggest this one
Edgar hits The Double(Oct. 8, 1995, ALDS Game 5): Edgar Martinez walks off the Yankees with a double that scores Joey Cora and Ken Griffey Jr. at a raucous Kingdome, perhaps saving baseball in Seattle.
We started watching this game. We made it until the Yankees got 3 outs against the Astros, then had to stop because it was getting late. Trying to figure out a time we can just sit and watch the game, because I don’t think it will be very entertaining to watch it 15 minutes at a time.
On a side note, I asked my son which baseball teams he knew. He couldn’t think of any offhand, but once I said Yankees and White Sox and Red Sox he said he knew those ones. We have a lot to learn to become a baseball family!
On an unrelated side note, my younger son is really really into basketball. He’s <3 and if we put on NBA highlights on YouTube he’ll watch an hour long video. So maybe between the two of them I’ll become a sports fan.
