For many people, baseball is a nostalgic sport. You may have a fond memory of playing little league ball, attending a Cardinals or Royals game, or listening or watching a game on TV with your family and friends.
Personally, I grew up in the suburbs of Chicago as a White Sox fan. That said, my first memory of seeing professional baseball was at Wrigley Field. It’s not the score I remember from that night, but the experience. We took the “El” to Wrigley to watch the Cubs play the Mets and we sat in the upper deck down the first base line. The time I spent bonding with my dad and the sights and smells of the ballpark helped me fall in love with the game of baseball.
We don’t think kids should be robbed of that experience just because they live in Mid-Missouri. There’s a void in family-friendly entertainment in Mid-Missouri, but we think the Jefferson City Renegades can fill that void.
