Henry's first MLB baseball games

18 August 2022
Henry visiting three MLB stadiums
Up until the Braves won the World Series last year, Henry didn't show that much interest in baseball. Because of that magical run, he is all in now and we visited a couple of parks this fall.

His first game ever was a good one seeing the Mets take on the Braves in the middle of a division title chase with two Max's on the mount (Scherzer vs. Fried). Unfortunately Atlanta couldn't come out on top, but it was a great first game for him to attend.

Just three days after that Henry, Scott, Charlie and I all made our way up to Fenway to watch Atlanta vs Boston. We bought tickets for this game back in the spring, and amazingly enough my team at work all came into town and drove up to watch as well. Henry had an absolute blast as we watched a back and forth game while seeing Atlanta hold off the comeback attempt in extra innings.

One week later we were up in Canada on vacation and the Blue Jays were in town taking on Baltimore. We lucked out on timing as there was a midweek afternoon game that we were able to attend. The best part about this is that mom and dad were there as well (can't remember the last time I saw an MLB game with both of them!).

So in a two week span, Henry went from never seeing a game to seeing two Braves games, an extra inning game and a game in another country. The best part about the Blue Jays game is that I was able to cross another franchise off the list. Half way done, half way to go:
